Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3106) When you are in the Create Database Pool wizard the jar driver list could show only jars containing Driver implementations
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2007 18:28:08 GMT
Just remember that one of the main reasons that there's an awkward
display of tons of JARs now is that the DB2 driver (did?  does?)
require 3 JARs to all be added in order to function, and only one of
those has any kind of driver implementation AFAIK.  (I think one is a
license and not sure about the other.)  I think there is at least one
other multi-JAR driver out there too.

I think it would be nice if we showed a single combo box, perhaps with
just the driver JARs listed, and then had a checkbox where if you
clicked it then the page would adjust to let you select multiple
arbitrary JARs instead.

Thanks,
      Aaron
