Hello

I have a problem, which is proberbly very simple but i am still having trouble with it.

I have downloaded the jdbc driver 'mysql-connector-java-3.1.6-bin.jar and placed it in my packages directory. I have changed my classpath to include that directory and the directory containing my java program as below

set classpath=\c:\Program Files\java\jdk1.5.0\mypackages\mysql-connector-java-3.1.6-bin.jar;c:\Program Files\java\jdk1.5.0

when i run my program it comes up with the error "Exception: No Suitable Driver"

I have tried placing the .jar file in the jdk1.5.0\jre\lib\ext but that still comes up with an error.

I was just wondering if anybody can see what i am doing wrong?

I would be very grateful for any advice
Thanks

below is the code for the java program i am using to test my connection:

Ian,
Welcome to JavaRanch! I'm glad to see that you found the solution so quickly.

I added UBB code tags to your posts. It makes code easier to read. For future reference, the UBB tags are right below the editor on the edit screen.
