I have seen this question asked and answered before. However, The answer isn’t working for me. Whenever I try to use the Class.forName() statement in Eclipse I always get the error: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException
It doesn’t matter that the supplied info is valid. At the suggestion of other sites, I put the .jar (that I am trying to instantiate) directly into the classpath with the buildpath feature. Still doesn’t work.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The whole project is FUBAR if I can’t get forName working.
