i`m just a newbee in java and database.
i work with suse 7.3, j2sdk1.4.0, mm.mysql driver and mysql.
on i found a java tutorial and follow the examples.but the first example CreateCoffees doesn`t work.
here is the code

when i run this program the following error comes:
linux:~/tomcat/webapps/examples/codeExamples/firstEdition # javac CreateCoffees.
linux:~/tomcat/webapps/examples/codeExamples/firstEdition # java CreateCoffees
SQLException: No suitable driver
linux:~/tomcat/webapps/examples/codeExamples/firstEdition #

is there anybody out there who have an idea?
