thanks very much for your solution:

Does it work if you have that? I guess we should update the example grouper
drivers at some point...

Yes! The old name was configured. Now it works with ojdbc6.jar and
the configuration updated with the new name:

grep ^hibernate.connection.driver_class
hibernate.connection.driver_class = com.p6spy.engine.spy.P6SpyDriver

grep ^realdriver

The strange thing is that, without p6spy, the old driver name was not
causing problem with ojdbc6.jar (while a wrong name causes a

grep ^hibernate.connection.driver_class
hibernate.connection.driver_class = oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

Also strange, by mistake I tested p6spy with the new driver name and
the old ojdbc14.jar and it did work!:

grep ^realdriver
realdriver= oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

So it seems it is only the combination of ojdb6.jar, p6spy and the old
driver name that does not work.

- In that case, it would be nice if an error message was given when
the driver class is not found.

Thanks again!
