When I was running the alpha 2 server, I was including my JDBC driver in the classpath when running the server. The server was able to locate the driver no problem.
Now, when I try the same thing with the alpha 3 server, the server cannot locate the JDBC driver. It can only locate the driver if I explicitly put the JDBC jar into the /lib directory.
It would be great if the server was able to check the classpath again for the JDBC driver.
