Hello everyone. I am trying to connect my MySQL database to a JTable in Eclipse. Here is a sample of the database code for the application:



Now, this program is for a desktop application, not a web application. I already added the classpath variable for the MySQL driver as follows:

1. Right click the name of the project folder.
2. Click on properties.
3. Click on Java Build Paths.
4. Click on JRE libraries tab.
5. Click the Add External JAR button
6. Browse and find the mysql-connector-java-5.1.7-bin .jar file
7. Click ok.

After I ran the program, I got this exception:


Unable to find and load driver

Now my question is how can I get rid of this exception from my desktop application. Also, what is the default classpath location for the MySQL .JAR files for desktop application.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
