Postgresql driver not found for maven dependency


I am running a spring project with maven and I am trying to use postgresql. I’ve added the dependency to pom.xml, but at tomcat startup, I get the following error:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.postgresql.Driver

pom.xml dependency:


It appears that Maven isn’t downloading the jar so the Driver class is not found. Any ideas?


Maven wasn’t recognizing the new dependency I have added to pom.xml, so I added it through ‘Dependency view’ from the xml and that did the trick. Thank you for your answers.
