Sun One ClassNotFoundException: oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

I am trying to set up the Oracle jdbc on Sun One Web Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 but do not seem to be having any luck.  It seems that OCI and thin fails.

I have installed the Oracle client in the folder c:\oracle\ora92.  I have selected the following items to install in the Oracle client: Oracle 9i Client 9.2.0.1.0, Common files, JDBC/OCI, JDBC/Thin, and Internet Directory Client.  (I then downloaded ojdbc14.jar and placed it in jdbc\lib folder.)

I am seeing the following error: ClassNotFoundException: oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

From the following web page:
<code>
<%@page language="java"
       import="java.sql.*,
       oracle.jdbc.driver.*,
       oracle.sql.*
   "%>
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>
Hello World
</title>
</head>
<body>
<%
//connections to ops2
 DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());
 Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:oracle:oci8:@wydot-ops2","username","password");

 Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
 ResultSet rset = null;

rset = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT AGENCY_NUMID,AGENCY_NAME FROM flightsch.state_agencies ORDER BY agency_name");

 while(rset.next())  
   {
     String ag_name = rset.getString("agency_name");  
%>
       <%= ag_name%>
<%
   }     //end of while loop
 rset.close();
 stmt.close();
 conn.close();
%>
</body>
</html>
</code>

I have made the following entries into the Sun One Administration pages:
Java Tab
JVM path Settings
   Classpath suffix = c:\oracle\ora92\jdbc\lib
   Ignore Env Class Path = on
   Native Lib Path Prefix = c:\j2sdk1.4.2_02\lib
   Native Lib Path Suffix =
JDBC Connection Pools
   Pool = jdbc-oracle-pool
   DataSource Classname = oracle.jdbc.pool.Oracle.DataSource
   URL = wydot-ops2
   User = username
    Password = password
    (Rest of items = defaults)

you need to make sure the class jar is on the classpath...

I have no idea with SunOne, but I *think* the file is called classes12.zip

it may be called: ojdbc14.jar now though...

Classpath suffix = c:\oracle\ora92\jdbc\lib\ojdbc14.jar

if it is...

have a look inside the jar with winzip to check the class is there...

It did not work by adding it to the suffix.  I did add it to the Environment variable for the system and then OCI worked.
