This sounds like a classpath problem. The OracleDriver class is located in the classes12.zip file (or classes111.zip if you are still using JDBC 1.0 and JDK1.1). The filename of the zip file must be part of the classpath. It's not enough to put E:\oracle\ora81\jdbc\lib into the classpath, you have to include the .zip filename as well: E:\oracle\ora81\jdbc\lib\classes12.zip.
