SoapUI ext libs and its weirdness

Suppose you want to add some additional jars to your SoapUI installation. It all should work ok if you put them in bin/ext directory. It is scanned at startup, and jars found there are automatically added to classpath.

You may face this NoClassDefFoundError:

An error occured [oracle/jdbc/Driver], see error log for details
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: oracle/jdbc/Driver

If so, try registering your drivers with registerJdbcDriver function, like I did in this snippet of code:

What a crappy thing!
