Class connection not found

I am trying to display records from a Cloudscape database. When my page tries to display I get an error message that ends with 61: Class connection not found.
I have checked my classpath and I am not sure where to look from here...
Will someone give me a hint what might be wrong here?
Thank you.

make sure that you import java.sql.* or java.sql.Connection.
import java.sql.*;
public class TestConn {
public static void main (String args []) {
try {
String dbUrl = args[0];
String driverName = args[1];

Connection con =
DriverManager.getConnection(dbUrl, "", "");
System.out.println("conn.isClosed = " + conn.isClosed());
} catch (Exception e) {
