Tables aren't created

Hey guys,

I've copied and pasted Chris's code from Github, everything works fine, I even get the same boot logs as he does, but when I log into the H2 Console and refresh, I don't have the Gif and Category tables.

Any heads ups? Thanks.

Here's the log for reference if you want it

With further tinkering, I'm beginning to believe the URL is the problem.

For some reason the Github repo has 2 giflib.db.url properties. When I delete the 'giflib.db.url = jdbc:h2:mem:giflib' one, my app doesn't boot.

However the major thing I see is that the giflib.db.url of my Data directory (giflif.db.url = jdbc:h2:tcp://localhost/E:/Projects/Java/Spring/treehouse-giflib-hibernate-68d1926/data/giflib) is coming up as UNUSED. Could this be why no matter how many times I refresh, new tables aren't created?

PS. I made a mistake of not adding the /data/giflib directory at the end of my URL string, however fixing that didn't solve the issue.

Hi Stefan, try commenting this line in app.properties file

giflib.db.url = jdbc:h2:mem:giflib

then uncomment this line in the same file:

giflib.db.url = jdbc:h2:tcp://localhost/~/Code/screencasts/giflib-hibernate/data/giflib

and make sure to choose "Generic H2 (Server)" in your browser while startingg the database server, it works for me.
