George, all I did was to change the connect strings from the start of
the actual java code sample that comes with Jaybird. Here is the
snippet for connection:

public class DriverExample


public static void main (String args[]) throws Exception


String databaseURL
= "jdbc:firebirdsql:localhost/3050:c:/firebird/examples/employee.gdb";

String user = "sysdba";

String password = "masterkey";

String driverName = "org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver";


Assuming your connect string (URL,user,passsword) is like this (as
per the documentation), any other problem you have is either with
your Firebird installation, or it is a java problem. So, check your
Firebird installation with isql, or one of the 3rd party tools. If
that is ok, then you have a java problem.

I don't want to put you off using java. But it is hardly the place
of the developers of the Jaybird JDBC driver to instruct people in
the basics of java. There are many books and/or articles for that
(in bookshops and the internet).

If you have not already compiled any java class from the freely
available source code on the internet, then I suggest you do that.
