Well, as always when you get that error, the class in question can't be found in your classpath. So where should you put the driver's JAR file? In your classpath.

add the mysql Connector jar in your class path it is going to solve your problem, if you are using the command prompt create the environment variable called "CLASSPATH" and set the value as the path of the mysql connector folder.
