I am a new user and want to start a database.

The connection to the external data source could not be established. No SDBC driver was found for the URL 'sdbc:embedded:hsqldb'. I get this when I try to open a new database. What does it mean?

If this is a Linux (Ubuntu-based) system, don't forget to install the required JDBC driver package as well.
