I got a similar error message even when just trying to load the
driver (class):

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method)
at java.lang.Class.forName(
at TestFirebirdJDBC.main(


import java.sql.*;

public class TestFirebirdJDBC

public static void main(String pArgs[])

System.out.println("Firebird driver loaded successfully.");
catch (ClassNotFoundException e)
System.out.println("Can\'t load the Firebird driver!!!.");
} // try

} // public static void main

} // public class TestFirebirdJDBC


My configuration is:
- Windows 2000, SP3
- Java: 1.4.0-01 (and 1.4.0)
- Firebird JCA-JDBC driver 1.0 Beta1

Driver location:


Btw, are there any new builds available? I checked out but honestly saying I don't like to setup a CVS/ANT
environment just to build the sources containing the latest fixes.

Thanks you
