> The JSTL sql tags use DriverManager API to connect to the database. There are well-known
problems with DriverManager API and classloaders and that is exactly what is causing the sql
tags not work in OSGi environment.  The core of the problem is that the DriverManager uses
the caller's classloader (in this case the JSTL bundle classloader) to find a driver for the
given url. Since JSTL bundle does not import any database drivers, the DriverManager does
not "see" any drivers and so fails to connect to the database.
> I opened bug report (with a
patch) in the taglibs project for this issue.
