I was wondering if anybody has experienced a similar problem.
We installed our application on out new Cobalt raq4....with our database(MYSql) running on another server...
We couldn't get the application running on Cobalt to talkt to the database until we un-jarred the MYSql mm driver....
What our systems admin. guy is telling me is that Cobalt will not allow to change the class path???
Has anybody experienced anything like this?

Well, if you can't change the classpath then add the mySQL drivers to the classpath! Try adding the driver jar file to C:\JDK_HOME\jre\lib\ext and I believe it should work.
Let me know

Thanks for your suggestion.
