Since I want to use Frontbase, and have it already installed and
running, I have also grabbed JDBC driver installation from
frontbase.com, it installed, I finished Pascal's podcasts and
everything was great. I didn't have to setup any additional path in
Eclipse. Somehow eclipse found out the driver "automagically".
However, later reading webobjects-dev mailing list I think Chuck
mentioned for some other thing "not to be in evil /Library/Java/
I have checked if I have that folder and Frontbase JDBC installation
created it that day and only frontbasejdbc.jar is there.
1. is that ok to have that JDBC driver jar there or:
Yes, it is OK. This directory is for extensions to the core Java API.
JDBC drivers qualify as such extensions.
2. what would be the proper place to put it?
The alternative place is in the Libraries of a framework or
application. This can have two advantages:
- the application is more self-contained
- applications on the same server can access different versions of the
same database type that need different JDBC driver versions
Of those, the first is more likely to be a concern. The second is
more of a theoretical issue, at least for me.
Thank you very much in advance
and really sorry for perhaps stupid beginners question.
