"fish jones", please see your private messages regarding an important administrative matter.

Also, please choose the proper forum. This question is not about IDEs, but rather a beginning Java question. Moving.

About the classpath, see: How to set the classpath

What is most likely meant is that you need to add the JDBC driver to your classpath. The JDBC driver for your database is a JAR file (Java library).

There are nice instructions in the Java™ Tutorials, for example.
