Hi
I am trying to connect to mysql on my jsp page using Eclipse.
I have declared my driver as:
Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();


and I get an error on runtime: "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"

Can you help please

Thanks in advance.

The reason is that jar is either not installed or not in the runtime path for the running process.
If you are running it on a client machine within a web-browser then it may well be sand-boxed to prevent 'bad things' [tm]
