Hi,
 I am trying to use Orcle thin driver within JDK1.1.
The program is as simple as this:

import java.sql.*;
class JdbcApplication {
  public static void main (String args []) throws SQLException {
    // Load Oracle driver
    DriverManager.registerDriver (new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());
     
    // Connect to the local database
    Connection conn =
      DriverManager.getConnection ("jdbc:oracle:thin:@199.81.96.83:1521:mkprod",
                                   "forecast_dba", "forecast");

    // Query the employee names
    Statement stmt = conn.createStatement ();
    ResultSet rset = stmt.executeQuery ("select country from outlook");

      // Print the name out
    while (rset.next ())
      System.out.println (rset.getString (1));
  }
}

But the compiler keeps saying "class oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver() not found in
type declaration". I have set the right classpath.
Please help.

Try this instead:

Class.forName( "oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver" );
Connection conn =  DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:oracle:thin:@199.81.96.83:1521:mkprod",
 "forecast_dba", "forecast");
