Trying to connect to pervasive sql with JDBC

Getting the following message when attempting to use the .jar file that came with my pervasive sql client:

lucee.commons.lang.ClassException: cannot load class through its string name, because no definition for the class with the specified name [com.pervasive.jdbc.v2] could be found caused by (java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:com.pervasive.jdbc.v2 not found by lucee.core [46];java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:com.pervasive.jdbc.v2;)

I checked the .jar file, and it has a valid definition, and I over-zealously pasted it in every lib and bin folder I could find, restarted, etc… Not sure where else to go with this. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
