Hi everyone.
we know that if we have jar files and we want to access these files in our application, we must put them under ext dir.
fine, I am using winxp, and I have the following dirs:
JAVA_HOME\jre\lib\ext\
Program Files\Java\jre1.4.0\lib\ext\
I am always but the extra jar files under "JAVA_HOME\lib\ext\" like junit.jar ...
but when putting the mysql jdbc driver under this dir, the application doesn't work until I put this jar under
"Program Files\Java\jre1.4.0\lib\ext\"
so what is wrong ??
should I add some thing to my classpath??
---------------------
my CLASSPATH is:
.;D:\SDKSE\lib\tools.jar;D:\SDKSE
