Hi Friends,
I've written a simple JDBC program with the intension of connecting to DB2 7.02.I've craeted a table in DB and want my JDBC program shown below to connect it.I'm getting the following error.please help me to sort and understand it better.
code:
import java.util.Hashtable;
import java.util.Properties;

import javax.naming.Context;
import javax.naming.InitialContext;


public class JDBCConnectionFromClient {
static java.sql.Connection con;
/**
* Constructor for JDBCConnectionFromClient.
*/
public JDBCConnectionFromClient() {
super();
}

static {
try {
Class.forName("COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver");
} catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println(e);
}
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc b2 RASHDB");
}catch(Exception ex) {
ex.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

Error i got is:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver
java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver
at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:563)
at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager.java:216)

You must have the driver class in your classpath.
this file is db2java.zip and its location on windows is
..\IBM\SQLLIB\java\

put it in your classpath and it should be OK.
