import java.util.*;
import java.sql.*;
import org.firebirdsql.*;

You do need all jar files that are in the lib/ directory. If you are
using beta version from SF download page, then you need additionally
javax.sql.* classes (JDBC 2.0 optional package from Sun). This
missing library is a known bug and will be fixed with the next beta

javax.resource.* is needed for the core functionality. This driver is
JCA from the very beginning, therefore JCA packages are needed. There
is no way to use driver without JCA.
