I wrote a java problem called '' as CGI, that search the mySQL database. I got error said "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:". Here is my cgi to call the java class: java -classpath /home/frank/cgi-bin/advd:/home/frank/jdk1.3.1_02:/home/frank/var/driver.jar:/home/frank/cgi-bin search $QUERY_STRING
the mySQL driver is /home/frank/var/driver.jar
Thanks for help.

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at .
We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please re-register and select a new name which meets the requirements.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
