Sometimes with certain JDBC Drivers you must do a Class.forName("driver").newInstance() for
it to load properly.

Right at line 2 in your code is were we are having trouble. Apparenlty our
code is written the same way, but it still doesn't seem like the JDBC driver
has loaded:


The driver is in the WEB-INF/lib/ directory.

Is there a config file that needs to allow permissions for this?

The following code demonstrate how to initilize MYSQL JDBC driver.

try {
  } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {

  try {
   Connection con =
DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/mydata", "username",
   Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
   ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT NAME FROM TEST");
      // Display the SQL Results
         while( {

      // Make sure our database resources are released
   }catch (SQLException se) {
          // Inform user of any SQL errors
       System.out.println("SQL Exception: " + se.getMessage());
