hi everybody,

i have a problem connecting to postgres using the jdbc driver.

took the org.postgresql.test.jdbc2.DriverTest and modified it to use 

	String url = "jdbc:postgresql://localhost/testdb";
	String user = "username";
	String pass = "password";


i get the exception 
org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: Connection Refused. Check that the hostname and port are correct and that the postmaster is accepting TCP/IP connections.

however, using 
psql -h localhost -U username -W 
and then specifying the password works. so i do not see how this could be a general problem with postgresql listening on the wrong interface or not accepting connections from the local host.

btw, i use psql 8.1.4 on ubuntu, jdbc is postgresql-8.1-408.jdbc2.jar

any ideas?

thanks,
david
