Hi,
After packaged my Application to a .jar file, I was no longer able to connect to the data base.

I'm using DB2 and my application is a standalone GUI app and the IDE is Eclipse.

Here is the driver and url I m currently using in the IDE.


I would like to know what are the procedures to sucessfully package an application and gain connection to the DB.

Have you added the driver jar file to the application class path? You can do that by using a Class-Path entry in the manifest file.

Thanks Ulf.

Also I found that the IDE can generate a Runnable jar which gives access to the DB, but was good to know how it works at the back end
