Hi ,

I am a newbie to JAVA and Connector/J on LINUX. I am having following problem when I try to test the installation. Here is program with which I am testing:

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.SQLException;

public class JdbcExample2 {

public static void main(String args[]) {
Connection con = null;

try {
con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql:///test",
"", "");

System.out.println("Successfully connected to " +
"MySQL server using TCP/IP...");

} catch(Exception e) {
System.err.println("Exception: " + e.getMessage());
} finally {
try {
if(con != null)
} catch(SQLException e) {}

This program compiles fine but when I try to run it ..I get the followig error:

I have copied my mysql-connector-java-3.0.16-ga-bin.jar file to j2sdk1.4.2_07/jre/lib/ext dir and also put both the directories in the classpath. but the error persists. Is my classpath not setting correctly? Or could it be a problem with my j2sdk installation?
this is urgent pls help me............
