[kepler-dev] Reg. problem running kepler

Hi Christopher, Dan and Matt
Thanx for your replies. I got all the files out of kepler with the -P option and built it. I am still unable to run it as i am having problems with cacheManager.java.
I debugged the application and found that, An exception occurs when it tries to create a prepared statement, called insertStatement i.e. line 111 in CacheManager.java
The kepler app is able to find the hsql library and it can even get a DBconnection object. But when it tries to create the prepared stmt for cacheContentTable, it errors out.
Does this problem ring a bell to any of you?
can somebody suggest what I am missing in my project...
as usual I have attached the stack trace for your kind perusal.
A quick note: The Building of kar archives created a directory in C:\Document and Settings\ USER\.kepler directory, but its contents were .kepler\ cache --> from which it picks up cacheManager.java
and the .kepler\kar is empty.
All the kar files are created in the usual kepler\kar folder only.
