You'll probably find that nonetheless is is NOT in your classpath. Put the jar in jre/lib/ext directory of your runtime and you won't need to worry about the classpath

what are u running when u get the exception?
If its a container such as tomcat then put your jar in <webapp>/WEB-INF/lib

And make sure yu have specified the correct classname.
Perhaps it should be:

com.ibm.db2.jdbc.net.DB2Driver

Are you sure that class is in that jar? List it to find out:

jar tvf db2jcc.jar

That's the reason for the error then. Not sure about that db. All i can suggest is looking in all the jars that come with the db or are associated with it

Be careful when you're checking that jar. This Java example (towards the bottom) suggests the driver *is* in that jar:

Actually the link given by CEHJ says that the driver is NOT in db2jcc.jar, but rather:

The DB2 UDB type 3 driver is stored in file db2java.zip under sqllib\java (the same file as for the type 2 App driver)

Depends what driver we're talking about:

>>
The DB2 type 2 Universal driver is stored in file db2jcc.jar under sqllib\java


The DB2 type 4 Universal driver is stored in file db2jcc.jar under sqllib\java (This Universal Driver implements Type 2 and Type 4 drivers). Type 4 only works with the TCP/IP protocol


The DB2 type 2 App driver is stored in file db2java.zip under sqllib\java
>>

To cover all bases, rename db2java.zip (if you have that file) to db2java.jar and place it in the ext directory where i mentioned before
