You need to make sure the driver is in your classpath. Where have you put the MySQL driver jar file?

Not able to find the class / jar containing the class in the classpath.Look into the scope of the classloader , which is trying to load the class.If its within a webapplication then put the jar in application/WEB-INF/lib folder.
It is sorta covered in the
