I'm working on a Mac Pro, 2 Quad Core Processors, 10GB memory, 300GB Disk, OSX 10.5.4
When I try to get a connection to a local MySQL database in a web app, I get the error "No suitable driver."
1. I put the mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar in my /lib/ext/ directory 2. I have configured the Java Build Path for the project and added external jar mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar. 3. I tried putting the mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar in the /Library/Java/Extensions folder. 4. I put the mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar in the Tomcat/lib/ folder 5. I've tried adding the jar to the "Paths" setting in MyEclipse under Tomcat Server.
It seems like I've put the var everywhere I can possibly think of, but it still can't seem to find it.
