If you're using Tomcat, try putting the jar in $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib See this for more info: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/jndi-datasource-examples-howto.html#MySQL_DBCP_Example

Hi Thanks for the quick response. I copied the rar file into $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib and there was no driver error. But now i am facing a new problem. My JSP name is Demo.jsp, its showing "org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to load class for JSP
" and "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.jsp.Demo1_jsp". For this I remember, we need to make some changes in the xml file present in WEB-INF. So that the class file must go and sit in the src folder. I am still confused.
