Hi, I have been getting an error in my java web application "No suitable driver found for jdbc:postgresql://...."

This is a maven java web application.  The jar is included as a dependency in the pom file and when the WAR is built out the jar can be found in webapps/MyApplication/WEB-INF/lib.  

I also tried placing the jar in /usr/share/tomcat/lib.  I am still recieving the same error.  I have tried this on a local DB with postgres and the driver works fine.  Can anyone help me out?
