Subject Re: [Firebird-Java] Can't connect to DB
Author Rick Fincher
Hi William,
This is very strange.  When I switched to the FB SQL driver (on both Windows and Solaris)  I just put in the new jar, changed the driver name to FBDriver, changed the url appropriately, and it worked.
You might try putting in a bad db filename that you know should fail and see if you get the same error.  If so it would indicate something wrong with the filename (case, underscore problem, etc).
I didn't see your earlier posts so I don't know the specifics of the problem.  Can you check to see if the driver is loading (non null) and see if you are getting a live connection (get.connection() not null).
You may also want to use FBWrapping data source instead of FBDriver and get connection pooling in the bargain.  I can give you the specifics on this if you like.  It's pretty easy and it may work around your problem.
Sorry if you have gone through this drill, like I say I didn't see your earlier posts.

Ok, I got the cvs snapshot, made a new firebirdsql.jar file using ant,
and still no go. Same damn error.

I am starting to loose hair now, as I pull it outone hair at a time. :)

What the hell is going on, why can't I get the Firebird JDBC driver to
connect? Ahhh. :(

LOL, although I do not know why I am.

I hate this exception, and it is the only one I get.

java.sql.SQLException: Problem getting connection: could not get a db

No sh@#. :)

Even after the making and using the new driver, I still get this same
error, no new errors or info. :(

Why oh why o, did I ever leave Ohio. :(
Actually never been there.

Looks like at least for the time being I am stuck with InterClient :(.
