Symptom

You need to make a connection via jdbc on a glassfish application server, your database is postgresql

Cause

none

Solution

First thing to do is download your jdbc driver. For postgres you can find this on the postgres website.

e.g.

postgresql-8.3-604.jdbc4.jar

or

postgresql-8.4-701.jdbc4.jar

Now you need to copy it in the lib directory of your domain. If you are working with the default domain, then this must be domain1.

e.g. on windows

C:\Programme\glassfish-v2.1\domains\domain1\lib>

or

C:\Programme\glassfish_v3\glassfish\domains\domain1\lib

e.g. on linux

~/glassfish-v2.1/domains/domain1/lib

After copying the driver you can setup and configure the data source. For more information look at the article "Howto configure a connection pool for a postgres database in glassfish".
