db_roles doesn't seem to exist as a table.  A lot of tables seem to start with "pg_" if they deal with roles and privileges.

I was able to solve the problem by creating dummy tables that had very specific privileges and catching exceptions to determine what group the user belonged to so I could display the appropriate options.  I got the grade on the assignment, but I still don't get why a user could select from pg_roles from the psql prompt, but not via jdbc statements.

Wouldn't it be db_roles?
