JDBC Applet problem

I am trying to run a sample JDBC Applet code I picked from Sun's Java web site. I have a Derby DB sitting on my local PC and thought I would be able to leverage the sample to connect to this local DB and issue a select SQL statement and display the results. But it throws me an error stating:

SQLException: java.sql.SQLException: Not suitable driver found
Any pointers as to why I am getting this error?

My CLASSPATH environment variable is set to:
C:\db-derby-10.3.2.1-bin\lib\derby.jar;.;C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_03\lib\ext\QTJava.zip

Sample Java Code:

Thanks in advance for any help.

Arthur,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

I'm going to move this to our Applets forum where they know about how classpaths affect applets.

Applets do not use the CLASSPATH variable. You need to include all necessary jar files in the archive attribute of the applet tag. See here for more detail on that.

Also be aware that if Derby needs access to the local file system (and I think it does, although it may have in-memory modes), which applets do not have for security reasons - it would need to be signed. See HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem for further information.
