hi i want to connect to the database therefore i wrote a database class
package PlotManagement;

import java.sql.*;




public class DBConnection {


public Connection connection =null;

public Connection connect()
{


try {
Class.forName("net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver");
String connectionUrl = "jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://DCSRV02:1433/REGISTRATION_TEMP_LTR_PRINT";
connection = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionUrl,"sa","water");
System.out.println("Connected" );
}
catch (Exception e)
{
System.out.println( "<h1>exception: "+e+e.getMessage()+"</h1>" );
e.printStackTrace();
}

return connection;
}

}


and i am trying to use connection variable in my servlet

package PlotManagement;
import java.io.*;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.Statement;

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class GetAreacode extends HttpServlet {

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)throws IOException, ServletException
{
response.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
out.println("<html>");
out.println("<head>");
out.println("<title> Films Example: Servlet, MSSQL version</title>");
out.println("</head>");
out.println("<body bgcolor=\"white\">");

try {
DBConnection d= new DBConnection();

Statement stmt = d.connection.createStatement();
ResultSet rs;
rs = stmt.executeQuery("select areacode from areacodemaster");
out.println( "<table>" );
while ( rs.next() )
{
String areacode = rs.getString(1);
out.println("<tr><td>"+areacode+"</td></tr>");
}
out.println( "</table>" );
d.connection.close();

}
catch (Exception e)
{
out.println( "<h1>exception: "+e+e.getMessage()+"</h1>" );
e.printStackTrace();
}
out.println("</body>");
out.println("</html>");



}
}


But i am getting the following errors
GetAreacode.java:23: cannot find symbol
symbol : class DBConnection
location: class PlotManagement.GetAreacode
DBConnection d= new DBConnection();

How are you compiling this code ? The problem seems to be complier not able to find the DBConnection class !!

goto PlotManagement directory and

compile as 'javac -classpath ".;servlet.jar" GetAreacode.java

in my classpath all the jar files are added
My classpath is:--
.;C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_11\bin;C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_11\lib;C:\Tomcat\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\Tomcat\common\lib\jsp-api.jar;C:\Tomcat\webapps\MyPlots\src\PlotManagement;C:\Tomcat\common\lib\jtds-1.2.2.jar;

Still it is showing the same error.

PlotManagement is part of the package name, so your classpath should actually be
.;C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_11\bin;C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_11\lib;C:\Tomcat\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\Tomcat\common\lib\jsp-api.jar;C:\Tomcat\webapps\MyPlots\src;C:\Tomcat\common\lib\jtds-1.2.2.jar;

Joanne has explained it, but some people here didn't grow up speaking English, and may use automatic translators; writing "any 1" may confuse them. Please look at this FAQ.
