Hi All,
I have a simple java application which reads data from the DB. The application works fine on windows. I have added the 'mysql-connector-java-5.1.22-bin.jar' in my windows classpath.
The problem comes when i copy the application on linux and run it. I getthe following exception:

I have read various articles on setting classpath in linux, but couldn't get through and I am still unclear as to how to set the classpath in linux?

I even copied the 'mysql-connector-java-5.1.22-bin.jar' in my project src folder where the .class file is generated but still no success.

I also tried setting the classpath at runtime by: export CLASSPATH=/opt/integra/middleware/LCPAnalyzer/src/mysql-connector-java-5.1.22-bin.jar

but then i got the follwoing exception:

I am totally lost as how to proceed now. Could someone please suggest a permanent way to set classpath in linux. I have few other java mail api related jars as well, which i would want to set in the classpath in linux but first want to resolve this mysql connector problem.

Any help woudl really be appreciated.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
