You need to load the driver first and then get the connection, also the
url for the connection s/b

jdbc:postgresql://hostname/test&user=test&password=test"

Assuming your database name is test


So your code needs to execute 
Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver")

And then
Connection db =
DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:postgresql://hostname/test"test",test"
);

Hi, I'm trying to get a small test program going. I have built
PostgreSQL 7.1.3 on RedHat 6.2 with --java, installed and created
databases, verified with psql. The postgresql.jar is on my classpath.

My pg_hba.conf has:
local        all                                           password
host         all         127.0.0.1     255.255.255.255     password

Here is my code:

import java.sql.*;

public class PostgresTest {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
     try {
      Connection db =
DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc.postgresql:test&user=test&password=tes
t");
// I've also tried all the permutations of getConnection() and urls. //
db, user, and password names have been changed to protect the innocent
// I've also tried Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver") and //
Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver").newInstance() instead of the arg.
      db.close();
     } catch(Throwable t) {
         t.printStackTrace(System.out);
     }
   }
}

--
Running it with:

java -Djdbc.drivers=org.postgresql.Driver PostgresTest
where the db has been started by user postgres with:
/usr/local/pgsql/bin/postmaster -i -D /data/pgsql >/data/pgsql/pgsql.log
2>&1 &

And the error is:

java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:537)
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:199)
        at PostgresTest.main(PostgresTest.java:6)


What is wrong?
