When trying to upgrade from 9.00 to 9.05 it fails to apply.
It stops very early up in the mix.
"load.db.properties: [get-database-props] log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (com.iconclude.dharma.commons.security.DharmaEncrypterBase). [get-database-props] log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
BUILD FAILED D:\Upgrade_9.05\upgrade-utils.xml:13: Could not resolve database driver from database URL: jdbc:hsqldb:hsql://localhost:9001/dharmaDB"
Yes, the solution was not to be running the trial version.
Trial version installs using HyperSQL database and the jdbc drivers cannot be found (by default). You could try installing the jdbc drivers (or putting them in your classpath) so they can be found. My resolution was to install the full version giving me the ability to specify what database I wanted to use.
