I remove nbuser32/ and my netbeans install
install netbeans 3.2.1 fomr scratch
start netbeans, setup using defaults
goto update center
update all packages (include db -- database explorer)
netbeans restarts as usual
goto runtime panel, database explorer,
click on drivers node, i get a list of driver templates etc.
^^^ all of the above is normal.
Then I proceed to install the postgresql jdbc jar
I quit netbeans
ln -s /usr/share/pgsql/jdbc7.1-1.2.jar jdbc7.1-1.2.jar
then restart netbeans...
then I get the exception (attached)
I am using:
$ rpm -q redhat-release jdk postgresql postgresql-jdbc
Created attachment 2678 [details]
ide.log detailing the unexpected exception
I think the problem is that your are using a link to the JDBC driver
jar insteand of the real driver jar and the security manager doesn't
allow you to load the classes from the linked jar. Copy the driver to
the lib/ext directory and it should work.
Closing as WORKSFORME. (for more info see the previous comment)
Resolved for 3.3.x or earlier, no new info since then -> closing.
