Subject RE: Problem with Class.forName
Date Sat, 24 Aug 2013 17:01:15 GMT
Thanks, Bryan,

Here's my new CLASSPATH (added both JAR files): 

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Doc>echo %CLASSPATH%
.;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\lib\ext\QTJava.zip;C:\Program
Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_25\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin;C:\Program


After making the changes and verifying the changes to CLASSPATH, I ran the
program.  I have several breakpoints starting at Class.forName(), then
connect = DriverManager.getConnection() and the catch (throw e) in the same
method (NewTest()).  Same problem - reaches line 21 (Class.forName()) then
jumps to line 33 (throw e).

Based upon your earlier comment, I'm going to try adding more 'files' to the
CLASSPATH.  It's odd and frustrating that it stops there... I was going to
use Oracle but Derby works (if I can get it to work within a program) with
the IDE.

Thank you!  I appreciate the help!
Best Regards,

Don't name the *directories* here, name the actual *jar files*.

As in:

set CLASSPATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\lib\ext\QTJava.zip;C:\Program

You can either list derbyclient.jar, or you can list derbyrun.jar.
