Unanswered: progress jdbc no suitable driver error
I am attempting to connect to a server running a progress database using jdbc. i receive the error of no suitable driver. I am trying to connect to the database using a windows machine. I have copied the progress.jar and jdbc.jar files to the windows machine and set the classpath. the error occurs at the point of the driver manager attempting to create a connection.
any suggestion will be appreciated
You should install JDBC driver. Copying *.jar files you mentioned is not all you need to estabilish connection. Installation ustility places some DLL files and completes other necessary actions. Then you can set your environment.
