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.
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.
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.

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.
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).
