Hi all,
I have written the foll code. But it generated the execption
ClassNotFoundException .What may be the reason??
import java.sql.*;
public class Select {
public static void main(String args[]) {
String url = "jdbc dbc:mrai";
Connection con;
String createString;
createString = "create table COFFEES " + "(COF_NAME VARCHAR(32), " +
Statement stmt;
try {
} catch(java.lang.ClassNotFoundException e) { System.err.print("ClassNotFoundException: "); System.err.println(e.getMessage()); }
try {
con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "scott", "tiger");
stmt = con.createStatement();
} catch(SQLException ex) {
System.err.println("SQLException: " + ex.getMessage()); }

Usually, these type of errors is caused by your incorrect setting in your Classpath variables. May sure you have the class path set up correctly.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
