You must get asked this all the time, but I searched and couldn't find what I'm looking for.
I'm trying to set up a JDBC-ODBC link for use with Access 2000, but on the line
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
I get a ClassNotFoundException.
I can compile everything OK. I don't have a CLASSPATH set, is this the problem? I'm using JDK1.3 and Win2000, the code is in an applet.
When I can get this working, I intend to have the applet accessing the DB on our web server (over the Internet).
However, I've been reading the Sun docs about setting this up, and at the end it says something about JDBC_ODBC being unsuitable for the Internet as all clients have to have various things installed on them, so should I not be using this?
(http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jdbc/basics/applet.html, last paragraph). If I shouldn't, how do I set up an MS Access driver?
Thanks.

sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver is in rt.jar. You need rt.jar in your class path. It comes with the Java SDK.
