Hello

I am trying to make a jdbc connection from an applet. This works fine if it s run using an applet viewer. But when i try to embed the applet in a jsp ,it throws an exception saying "com.mysql.jdbc.driver" cannot be found. I have added the driver in the lib of the web application that i am building. Can anyone guide me on this?


THanks

Applets don't use the WEB-INF/lib and WEB-INF/classes directories. You need to put the jar file into a publicly accessible directory (e.g., the one where you keep the other applet class/jar files), and add an archive attribute to the applet tag which specifies the name of the jar file.
