PostgreSQL JDBC Driver not working for Heroku DB Connection

I have a class that tries to connect to a Heroku database:

public class ConnectionFactory {

public Connection getConnection() {
System.out.println("Conectando ao banco");
try {
return DriverManager.getConnection("connectionstring", "username", "password");
} catch (SQLException e) {
throw new RuntimeException(e);

What it returns is:

java.lang.RuntimeException: java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver
found for

I already tried postgresql-9.3-1103.jdbc3.jar and postgresql-9.4.1209.jre6.jar
in the Build Path of the project. What I am doing wrong?


The solution was simple, System.getenv("JDBC_DATABASE_URL") returns it in server and it does the correct configuration of login and password.

public Connection getConnection() throws URISyntaxException, SQLException 
String urlDB = System.getenv("JDBC_DATABASE_URL");          
return DriverManager.getConnection(urlDB);
