Greetings Eclipse Gwt Project - jdbc connection problems java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

Hello everybody,

Long story short is like this: I started to develop a Gwt-Ext
application in Eclipse as a Dynamic Web Project (the tutorial that I
have followed gave me this start). Then I added Hibernate to do the
persistence and some business logic. Every thing went smooth till I
tried to deploy the app to Tomcat. This proved to be a pain in the ass
because the project wasn't a Gwt project so the war arhive was not
constructed well. I needed to do some ant work to deploy correctly the
app. Opposed to this I got the aternative to make a blank (not so
blank Greeting) project and add the sources, libs etc that I had in
the first project. Smooth again, no compiler erros, libs putted in lib
folder and added in Java build path and also in war\WEB-INF\lib\. The
problem is that when I try to execute
sessionFactory = new AnnotationConfiguration().configure
().buildSessionFactory();
I get java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError at
com.mysql.jdbc.NonRegisteringDriver.connect(NonRegisteringDriver.java:
284).

Not knowing what went wrong even after hours of googleing I decided to
isolate the problem. So I created a new Gwt project. Eclipse created
for me standar packages and default sources (GreetingService stuff).
Then I copied in lib folder (created by me) the mysql connector, add
also to Java build path, add 3 lines to GreetingServiceImpl:
Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/mercury";
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url,"root", "root");
No comilation error but at runtime when I try to execute this piese of
code the same ExceptionInInitializerError occurs.

I mention that there are no database conectivity problems (the error
is the same even if the server is closed so it doesn't even get to the
actual connecting) and I have also made a simple Java project with a
main function that connects with the same connnector in the same
fashion with no problems at all.

To be more clear I have archived the project and uploaded here:

The full stack trace is bellow:

Can anyone help me... any ideeas on how to connect on server side to a
data base in a Gwt app?

Thank you in advance. I'm waiting your answer.
