I have got the Type 4 JDBC Driver as follows,
I downloaded the zip file from the following site,
http://www.mysql.com/downloads/api-jdbc-stable.html

I have put the following part of the extracted file
mysql-connector-java-3.0.17-ga-bin
into the folder \Tomcat 4.1\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\lib

How do I set the Classpath for this and what is the connection dtring to be mentioned in the Class.forname statement.. Please help

Hi Yash,
I believe the easiest way to get your class4 drivers working is to simply place the jdbc driver (.jar file) into your /java/jre/lib/ext folder.
Tomcat will happily work with this arrangement if you have set up the JVM correctly in your Tomcat.

regards,
Rahul
