Error with Java/Cache JDBC Classpath

I have a developer needing to connect from Tomcat to a Cache database running on a Linux server.
I got the cachejdbc.jar and cachedb.jar files from Ontario by installing a Windows version of Cache on my local machine.
I've placed them into a folder that's located inside the classpath.  When he runs his code, it's coming back with:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.intersys.jdbc.CacheDriver

I verified that the CacheDriver.class is inside the .jar file.  I don't know what else might be the problem.
Here is the snippet of code he's using:
Class.forName ("com.intersys.jdbc.CacheDriver").newInstance();
String  url="jdbc:Cache://<OUR URL>:1972/<OUR NAMESPACE>";
java.sql.Driver drv = java.sql.DriverManager.getDriver(url);

java.util.Properties props = new Properties();
props.put("user",username);
props.put("password",password);
java.sql.Connection dbconnection = drv.connect(url, props);

Class.forName ("com.intersys.jdbc.CacheDriver").newInstance();

Open in new window

before that, please place the following and post what it prints

System.out.println(System.getProperty("java.class.path"));

Open in new window
