private final String driver = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
private final String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/dvd";
private final String user = "";
private final String password = "";

/**
 * The constructor attempts to load the jdbc driver class.

public Database() throws SQLException {

Its not finding your driver class, make sure the jar is available to the WL class loader.
eg. put the jar in <webapp>/WEB-INF/lib
