In cases like this, the issue is that the JDBC driver has not been
successfully registered. That is the only cause I have ever seen for
this type of error message.
One possible issue is that some VMs do not necessarily register the
driver when you run code such as:
Although the previous code is supposed to take care of registration for
you, you should try something like:
> java.sql.DriverManager.registerDriver(new org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver());
This works around deficiencies in some VMs and is a bit more explicit.
