Hi Sven,

When MCF is built, two entirely distinct versions of the examples are created -- a standard
version, and a "proprietary" version.  The proprietary version does not in general include
any proprietary jars and leaves connectors that depend on them disabled in the connectors.xml
file.  The proprietary version is not included in the shipping binary.  If you want everything
to automatically be put together for you and you rely on proprietary jars you will need to
build yourself.

However, it's easy to add root-level proprietary jars to the non-proprietary binary.  The
start options in the examples directories all include references to  root-level proprietary
jars; you just have to add your JDBC driver to those options files and you should be good
to go.

Hi there,

I'm trying to get the JDBC-Connector to work with the provided example. Target database is
MSSQL. The JDBC-Connector seems to be registered successfully.

But every time I configure the JDBC-Connector via web-interface, the connection-status shows
"Threw exception: 'Driver class not found: net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver'"

While several sources (including Manifold-Website) state that third party libraries are required
to BUILD the connectors, I have downloaded the binary version and I thought there was no need
to build anything there. (Am I wrong?)

So do I have to put a required jar-file within the folders somewhere? I tried several jtds-jars
in several folders with no luck. I simply want to test an sql-connection with manifold within
the example.
