JDBC Connection Issue [message #43565] Fri, 12 January 2007 12:34 Go to next message

Hi,

I hope this is the right group for this query - had a look through all the
topics and it didn't seem to fit anywhere.

Anyway, I am receiving a ClassNotFound Exception when I am trying to load
the driver for connecting to a MySQL database. I've trawled various
newsgroups and the usual resolution for this ensuring the
mysql-connector-java-<version>-bin.jar is added to the classpath. I have
this on my classpath but still get the error, the jar lives in
C:\ProgramFiles\Java\jre1.5.0_08\lib\ext.

To compound my confusion I have the exact same code working in a different
project, the only difference between that and my present project is that
the current one is a plug-in. Could this be causing the error?

Thanks,
Steve

You should try the eclipse.platform group, or the eclipse.newcomer group.

This group is for non-technical discussion about the Eclipse Foundation
organization.

Yes, but this isn't the right forum (as you guessed). Post to either the Equinox or RCP news groups.
