Subject Re: [Firebird-Java] How to connect ColdFusion Builder to Firebird 2x
Author Mike Hickman
In the CF Administrator Select Datasources
Settings are as follows :

Driver Class org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDrive

Administrator Server Settings Java and JML : Firebird,"
Make sure the file jaybird-full-2.1.1.jar located at
c:\Coldfusion8\wwwroot\WEB-INF\Classes or alternatively in the directory
in place of the above.

The last step is the one that tricked me. Seems the call by CF is case
sensitive. I went around in circles before getting it right.

I hope this helps.
