Using MyEclipse IDE ,I am trying to insert a row in a MySql table in a web based project.The code is working fine in a Java project (row is being inserted) but when i 'am trying it in a web based project its not finding the JDBC driver and giving error :
I am adding the driver in project by adding external jar file in WEB-inf/lib folder but its showing the driver in project's root directory,not in web-inf/lib directory.Whats the exact problem,driver is not copied in right directory or something else?
What server are you running the web application in? Normal Eclipse doesn't acknowledge webapps so putting it in WEB-INF\lib would only work in the context of a server. Not sure how MyEclipse handles it.
Also, when you add a file as a library Eclipse automatically shows it in the root regardless of where it exists in the project. I would think for a webapp you wouldn't want to add it as a library, unless MyEclipse can understand this.
