I am guessing it just can't find the driver for mySQL. It's either your class path is not set correctly or you have not downloaded the drivers.

I had figured it out over the weekend. I did download the drivers and put them in the appropriate folders. However, my JAVA Editor was over-riding my CLASSPATH that I had set. So I had to set the CLASSPATH inside my editor.
All fixed.
