I get the following command results, when I try to compile my code:

H:\Programming\ cannot access
file com\microsoft\jdbc\base\BaseDriver.class not found
final Driver driver = new;
1 error

Could you, please, help me...

Is the driver in your classpath when compiling?

Also, it is good to use DriverManager rather than instantiating the driver class directly. There are some examples in the JDBC tutorial.
