For some reason I had assumed that Java EE 5 SDK included the driver but I couldn't locate postresql.jar on my computer. So I downloaded and ran various precompiled versions of the driver from and always got the error "failed to load main-class manifest attribute." Googling this in various permutations at Google, jdbc.postgresql and java.sun lists I didn't find anything promising.

I tried to build the source with Ant but I always wind up with "Buildfile: build.xml does not exist."

Sorry for the newbie questions and problems. I thought once I had all the components working it would be fairly simple to implement jdbc to PostgreSQL. This list also seemed more appropriate than the novice list.

Sincerely obliged,
Bruce Hyatt
