Subject [jira] [Commented] (NETBEANS-3424) Unable to use Derby DB version in Netbeans 11.2
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2021 19:17:00 GMT


Abnilson Rafael commented on NETBEANS-3424:

Same thing on NB 12.2, what's going on... I want to use newer Java version. I get "Driver
Class is missing" or "{{java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver}}",
every time I try to create a new DB.

> If you assign Derby version as the Java DB installation, as soon as you try
and connect to the sample database, or as soon as you try and create a new database, you get
an error dialog box "_Unable to connect. Cannot establish connection to jdbc:derby://localhost:1527/sample
using org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver (unable to find a suitable driver)._"
> If instead you use Derby version, it all works OK.
> Note: please refer to the release notes for the new version of Derby DB here : []
> This indicates that some "JPMS modularization" has taken place - I wonder if this will
be the root cause of the issue - and in which case it will impact all versions of NetBeans
> To reproduce the issue:
> 1. In the Services window, expand Databases, click right on Java DB and set the properties
to point to the installation folder for Derby
> 2. Click right on the sample database and select Connect...
