Yes, you should add (and enable) the Jaybird driver jar.

Unfortunately it is very hard to troubleshoot a tool that you have never used based on scarce information. These errors are usually caused by
1) Not including the right driver jar
2) Specifying the wrong driver classname
3) Using the wrong JDBC-url when attempting to connect

Please be more detailed in what you configure and setup.

If I have time I might look deeper into this, but I don't make any promisses; you might also want to contact the creator of SQL Developer.
