Hi arazauci,

are you sure that you have set up the environment file properly? This exception occurs if you configure a catalog which is not found. If you are not sure about the correct JDBC settings, edit the log4j.xml file, add a category

Code: Select all
    <category name="org.databene.jdbacl.model.jdbc">
       <priority value="debug"/>

and run DB Sanity again. Its output will show you which catalogs (message 'found catalog #') and schemas (messages 'importing schema #' or 'ignoring schema #') are available. Find the appropriate catalog and schema and configure them in the 'env' file.

If that does not help, it may be a side effect of some bugs induced in recent metamodel changes of the underlying jdbacl library. I will create a bug fix release of DB Sanity in the next days.
