Java - database connection issue, setting the jdbc class path

Hello experts<

I try to connect to my data base with the following:

var dbConn = DatabaseConnectionFactory.createDatabaseConnection ('com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver','jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433;databaseName=ngtest;','default','#####');

and ge the error:

Wrapped java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433;databaseName=ngtest

REsearching a bit tells me to set the path correctly in the class file, but are not sure how to do that.  Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

add this line before creating db connection
Class.forName("com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver");

you need to include the jar file that have com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver class in your classpath,
use this tutorial as reference for jdbc

you set a wrong zone : javascript.
should be : java

which tools are you using to compile your code ?
You may specify the path to the ms sql jdbc driver (sqljdbc.jar) with javac with the option : -classpath

Generaly under dev tools you specify the classpath (not only for a jdbc driver) by project.
For your applications running on the system you set the classpath as environment variable

more info here for example :
http://download-llnw.oracle.com/javase/1.3/docs/tooldocs/win32/classpath.html

if you need more help you can ask a moderator to change the zone... hmmm... I do it for you now :)
