JDBC Applet problem

I am trying to run a sample JDBC Applet code I picked from Sun's Java web site. I have a Derby DB sitting on my local PC and thought I would be able to leverage the sample to connect to this local DB and issue a select SQL statement and display the results. But it throws me an error stating:

SQLException: java.sql.SQLException: Not suitable driver found
Any pointers as to why I am getting this error?

My CLASSPATH environment variable is set to:
C:\db-derby-\lib\derby.jar;.;C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_03\lib\ext\

Sample Java Code:

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

I'm going to move this to our Applets forum where they know about how classpaths affect applets.
