  1. Hi,

    Thank you for taking the time to document this.
    I have tried v7 and v8 of the Denodo JDBC driver but keep getting:
    No suitable driver found for jdbc:vdb://:/

    (actual values of servername etc. replaced)

    Any idea what’s wrong here?

    Thanks a lot

    1. Hello;

      Sorry, I don’t. The process has always worked for me, as long as
      I have placed the driver in the correct path and added the file to the library.
