Failed to init connection - Postgres

Hello,

I'm receiving the below error when attempting to create a connection to a postgres database running SoapUI version 5.6.0

I have copied the postgresql-42.5.1.jar file to the below location;

C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.6.0\bin\ext

I've tried restarting SoapUI to no avail.

Could someone please advise what I may be doing wrong?

Hi Shashavali - have tried that but unfortunately get the same error.

The Postgres driver I've downloaded is for Java 8, is that the correct version for SoapUI 5.6.0?

Ah - There is a typo on the SoapUI documentation site. Adding the 'j' fixed the issue;
