New Question: JDBC driver configuration error



A new question has been asked in "MariaDB Community" by Intrinsic. Please answer it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/jdbc-driver-configuration-error/ as the person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.

I am attempting to connect to MariaDB from a command line Java program.  I am getting the "no suitable driver found" error.   I am using the mariaDB Type 4 JDBC driver, the JDK 1.8, Windows 10.  I have added the maria driver to the lib directory of the JRE, and added this directory to the PATH and CLASSPATH environment variables.  

I can connect to the mariaDB database using DBVisualizer, when I manually point the configuration of DBVisualizer to the maria driver, so I know that the driver works fine.

Here is the Java code:

            Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mariadb://localhost:3306/DB?user=root&password=myPassword");

and the error

C:\Users\Documents\VTK\Dev>java -cp . VTK3
java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:mariadb://localhost:3306/DB?user=root&password=myPassword
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(Unknown Source)
        at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(Unknown Source)
        at VTK3.main(VTK3.java:38)
