I am using tomcat to connect cloudscape database. I am try to store the input var from a HTML to the database. However, when I press the submit button, it is an unavailalbe exception
--Error: 503
Location: /techSupport/servlet/techSupport
Driver not found in the classpath.
Service is permanently unavailable
I've opened %Tomcat_home\bin\tomcat.bat and type
(other classpath settings)
I can't figure out what's the problem is. As this is my first JDBC project~~ Anyone help? Pls..........

Thanks in advance~~

Are you embedding Cloudscape within your Tomcat engine,
or accessing a remote server? For instructions on
setting up the embedding, see
If it's a remote server, you need to have the framework
classes in your CLASSPATH too, what they are depends
on which server framework you are using (RmiJdbc, Cloudconnector
are two that Informix ships; RmiJdbc comes with Cloudscape).
Also make sure you are loading the Cloudscape JDBC
Driver, use Class.forName("COM.cloudscape.core.JDBCDriver").
You might want to contact for
more assistance, too.
Hope this helps,
