Hi,
i've write a little class to connect to mysql server:
        Connection conn = null;
        try {
            String userName = "root";
            String password = "admin";
            String url = "jdbc:mysql://hostname:3306/cs";
            try {
                      Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();
            } catch (Exception e) {
                System.err.println(e.toString());
            }
           try {
                conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, userName, password);
                System.out.println("Database connection established");
            } catch (Exception e) {
                System.err.println(e.getStackTrace());
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            System.err.println(e.toString());

        }
If the class is executed in a Java application, it's ok, but when using Java Webstart i  get error shown below:

Communications link failure due to underlying exception:
** BEGIN NESTED EXCEPTION

..sorry but this problem drive crazy.


i try to debug the class in the NetBeans 5.0 ide environment the problems are:
      (i should sign the jar also in debug mode?, if so, how can do it?)

      in debug i get this exception "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" when i try
      to execute Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();

      so i've insert into the jnlp resources entry:
              <resources locale="" os="">
                <jar download="eager" href="dist/mysql-connector-java-5.0.3-bin.jar" main="false" version=""/>
              </resources>

      in this case the drive is loaded but when the statement below is executed  i get the
      java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.net.SocketPermission hostname:3306 connect,resolve)
      
            conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, userName, password);
      
      

      so  i try to deploy the application and then sing then jar and the mysql-connector-java-5.0.3-bin.jar
      put the war file on the tomcat server, stop the service replace the jar with the signed one
      then restart.

      in this case i get the error

      An error has been taken place during  the execution of the application.

            Title: test
            Fornitore: Company, Inc.
            category: download error

            resource not signed: http://hostname:8080/prova/dist/mysql-connector-java-5.0.3-bin.jar
            
      ..but the jar is singed!

      this is the jnlp generated by netbeans:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE jnlp PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD JNLP 1.5//EN" "http://www.netbeans.org/jnlp/DTD/jnlp.dtd">

    <jar download="eager" href="dist/prova.jar" main="false"/>
  </resources>
  <resources locale="" os="">
    <jar download="eager" href="dist/mysql-connector-java-5.0.3-bin.jar" main="false" version=""/>
  </resources>
  <application-desc main-class="prova.Main"/>
</jnlp>


thanks

yes u need to include the mysql jar in your jnlp, and u also need to sign that jar
if its saying it isn't then  check it isn't being cached, and its using an unsigned version

i solved the problem, for unknown reason the java web start said the mysql-connector-java-5.0.3-bin.jar was unsigned
but the jarsign -verify confirmed me that jar was correctly signed!
so, i unziped the jar then i removed the manifest file, zip again and then sign again.
after this all works fine.

someone can explain me why?
