My applet is running from applet tags pointing inside an archive aka jar. The problem arises when i try to connect using driverManager the class.forName(entry) is automatically appended to the directory of the default.aspx page. i don't understand how its going from the inside the jar directly to a higher level url. I need the class.forName() to point it into the jar file in http://sharepoint/site/folder/ .jar file. so it can access the sqlserverdriver in it. Thanks for reading.Patrick.
I didn't say it. I'm just telling you what this tiny ad said.
