[postgis-users] PostGIS - hibernate (new postgis.jar)

I think I missed the start of this thread (and I can't find it in the
archives), can you summarize the problem, and the server you are using?

The GeometryUserType class doesn't do very much but call out to the
utility functions provided in the postgis jar, so it does sound like a
classpath issue.

If you can send me a summary I will try to recreate the problem.  (I
have both tomcat and jboss set up here).

If the attachment is large please send it to norman.barker<at>gmail.com

decompression and cannot be scanned.

Hi Markus,

The thing I did to be able to continue is I have created a
lib that contained only new stuff like BinaryWriter.class and
And that works. It does not solve the problem, though I can use the
version of postgis.

I tried to use the tip I found in my previous posting by changing the
of the postgresql-jdbc.jar drvier to pg-jdbc.jar driver with my new
postgis2.jar (version 1.1.5)
I did not help.  
If I remove the 2 stub files (PGConnection and Connection) from
: same result.
It stucks again on "No suitable driver".
If I replace the postgis2.jar by postgis.jar(1.1.0) and
postgis_addon.jar by
changing the settings on the classpath, everything works again.

So, I assume there is a thing in postgis2.jar.
And to create my postgis2.jar, I made a separate project in Eclipse,
a jar file of almost all java files(exl examples). This should do it, no

Anyway, I included my postgis2.jar so maybe one can replace his one with
mine and see what that does.
Or maybe one sees what I am doing wrong elsewhere...

Those 2 things look like a classpath/classloader problem.

You have to make sure that the postgis.jar and the postgresql-jdbc.jar
available via the same classloader (and that you don't have two
of them in your classpath)
