Hi there,
I,m trying to connecting to sample database of NetBeans 6. But I'm getting an error on this line:

Class.forName("org.apache.derby.jdbc.ClientDriver").newInstance();


It says:

Method "forName" in class "java.lang.Class" threw an exception: instance of java.lang.ClassNotFoundException(id=349)

How can I solve this problem?

Thank you

Make sure your driver is in your classpath.
