Casting really just tells the compiler that you know what
you are doing and it should just let you do it. If, however,
the object that you are assigning to a Connection is not really
a Connection, then you will get a ClassCastException. I
think you have just pushed your error to runtime instead of
compile time.

Indeed, the error I am getting is at compile time.
Your statement seems to work fine altough I have to make same changes to the
rest of the program.
It is strange, because I followed the book.
Even when Dave is able to compile it.
Message for Dave, the longshots did not work either.

Can you tell me why I have to put (Connection) in front of the
java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection?

ok)
