Add derby.jar to your project's library list. And that is as much as I will say about it as classpath discussions always become ugly on a forum. Find a tutor and/or read the IDE documentation thoroughly and read everything you can find about classpath.

i have added derby.jar in the folder list but still class not found exception.
