Maybe is problem in applet security.

What mean this part of your stack trace?

Caused by: java.io.FileNotFoundException: H:\project\com\mysql\jdbc\Driver.class

try setting the classpath as:-
C:\> set CLASSPATH=\path\to\mysql-connector-java-[version]-bin.jar;%CLASSPATH%
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
