This is actually the way that you are supposed to do it. The JDBC driver is
supposed to register itself with the DriverManager (using the
method) when it is loaded.

Another way of loading JDBC drivers is to set the "jdbc.drivers" property
with a colon-separated list of drivers (java classes) and terminated with a
semi-colon. The DriverManager starts by loading all the drivers specified
in this property. Individual drivers can be loaded by calling
with the driver class name.
