Subject Problems compiling
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2007 11:25:48 GMT
Hi all,

I'm new to iBatis, this is my first project. I'm trying to use it with a
JDBC driver provided by Microsoft to access MS SQL 2005. Every time I try to
run it on Eclipse I get the same error message: "Could not find the main
class. Program will exit". This error is often retrieved when you try to
execute a JAR file that hasn't it's MANIFEST.MF file set to specify the main
class. It's not my case. Also there aren't version compatibility issues.

I thought this error could have been generated due to mis-configuration.
While configuring the transaction manager in the XML , I didn't find the
list of available properties so that I can set what I need. So I set the
properties I thought would be available:

Here is the source-code of my 3 files: (They are all at the same package and
classpath can find packages properly)

***** SqlMapsConfig.XML *****

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<!DOCTYPE sqlMapConfig
    PUBLIC "-//ibatis.apache.org//DTD SQL Map Config 2.0//EN"


  <transactionManager type="JDBC" commitRequired="false">
    <dataSource type="SIMPLE">
      <property name="JDBC.Driver" value="
      <property name="JDBC.Username" value="sa"/>
      <property name="JDBC.Password" value="ph4r400h"/>
      <property name="JDBC.ServerName" value="localhost"/>
      <property name="JDBC.DatabaseName" value="PDV"/>
      <property name="JDBC.PortNumber" value="1455"/>

<sqlMap resource="Translation.xml"/>


***** Translation.XML *****

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<!DOCTYPE sqlMap
    PUBLIC "-//ibatis.apache.org//DTD SQL Map 2.0//EN"

<sqlMap namespace="Translation">

  <resultMap id="TranslationResult" class="Translation">
    <result property="id" column="id"/>
    <result property="label" column="label"/>

  <select id="selectAllTranslations" resultMap="TranslationResult">
    SELECT * FROM _translations


***** Tests.java *****

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.Reader;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import com.ibatis.common.resources.Resources;
import com.ibatis.sqlmap.client.SqlMapClient;
import com.ibatis.sqlmap.client.SqlMapClientBuilder;

public class Tests {
    private static SqlMapClient sqlMapper;
     static {
            try {
              Reader reader = Resources.getResourceAsReader("
              sqlMapper = SqlMapClientBuilder.buildSqlMapClient(reader);
            } catch (IOException e) {
              // Fail fast.
              throw new RuntimeException("Something bad happened while
building the SqlMapClient instance." + e, e);

    public static List selectAllTranslations() throws SQLException {
        return sqlMapper.queryForList("selectAllTranslations");


    public static void main(String args[]) {
        ArrayList myList;
        try {
            myList = new ArrayList(Tests.selectAllTranslations());
        } catch (SQLException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block

Does anybody know the problem? Any tips are welcome,
Thanks in advance.
