Eclipse plugins can only see other eclipse plugins (well, bundles). JDBC drivers are the worst class of 3rd party jars, because they depend on a global classpath to work correctly. Search for all the questions on including 3rd party jars in eclipse plugins, and using JDBC in eclipse plugins.

One way is to include the JDBC jar in your plugin that uses JDBC. You need to File>Import.. it into your plugin, and then use the PDE Editor>Runtime tab>Classpath section to specify the JDBC jar (and make sure . is included as well). The JDBC jar must also be included in the Build tab>Binary section.

Good luck,
