Hi,
We are using java 1.1 on one of our systems. I need ifxjdbc.jar which is compatible with java 1.1. I have ifxjdbc.jar(don't know which version it is), but my java class is not able to recognize the com.informix.jdbc.IfxDriver class. I am getting 'Class Not Found Exception'.
Any clue on why Java 1.1 is not able to recognize ifxjdbc driver.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Baps

A ClassNotFoundException sounds like ifxjdbc.jar is not in your classpath, so double-check that.
Also, (once you have the jar file correctly in your classpath) if you need to know what version the driver is you can do this:
It will output the version.

"Baps V",

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JDBC forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

Hello Bear Bibeault,
I have my displayed name as Baps Vakalagadda in my profile. But I wonder why it is displaying as Baps V. But I can sign my full name. The link you provided took me to my profile which has my full name. Any other links I would be really happy to put my full name.

Thanks,
Baps vakkalagadda

I have ifxjdbc driver in my class path. But I think I am using older version of java i.e jdk 1.1 and I am trying to use informix 2.22 which is incompatible with jdk 1.1. Any idea where I could get older version of ifxjdbc.jar (1.22).
Thanks

Baps,
Thanks for fixing your display name. Did you check the IBM site for older drivers?
