Hmmm, I removed that code in 6.5.2 because not all Java implementations
(not just Kaffe but those based on Sun's VM) didn't return a proper
version string (I've seen dates, peoples names etc).

You should see a class file called DriverVersion appear (built by the
Makefile), which simply defines a string which holds the base class file
that's loaded by Driver.

For 6.5.3 its postgresql.DriverVersion, and for 7.0 its

Have not tried with 7.0, but recent versions of Kaffe were definitely
to compile the JDBC code that came with 6.5.3, but only after modifying
the version check in the file in src/interfaces/jdbc
perhaps elsewhere where a versioon check occurs). The code checks for
java version string and rejects everything that doesn't start with
1.1 or 1.2. The problem was that Kaffe reports its own version, e.g.
rather than the corresponding JDK version.
