Hi there,

I have run the suggested command to install the jConnect stuff but I am
getting a 'can't find class jConnect' error. I am running it from the
directory where I downloaded the jConnect.class file. I am running Win
95. Funny thing is I set all this up at home and it works fine.

TIA

Patrick

Patrick-

I found that, since I had jdk1.1 set up properly, if I didn't specify the
"-CLASSPATH" flag, the proper classes were found. If I did specify it, it
wasn't able to find java.lang.Thread. I've run into problems on my jdk.1.1
installations a couple times on both Win95 and Solaris when I didn't
include the current directory (".") in the Classpath. Go figure...

There is a typo in the install instructions for nt/win95 on
the web.

change

java -classpath .:%JAVA_HOME%\lib\classes.zip jConnect



to

java -classpath .;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\classes.zip jConnect


when you specify -classpath, you must specify "." in order to pick
up classes in the current directory. Failure to do this will result
in jConnect.class not being found.

You need to re-read the install instructions on setting your
environment variables again. Your CLASSPATH environment variable
is incorrect - on Windoz you set these via the "System" command -
and remember that the CLASSPATH is a semi-colon delimited list of
directories.

Kevin, sounds like you correctly got the $JDBC_HOME/classes part
of your classpath right, but you didn't include
$JAVA_HOME/lib/classes.zip which is where the Thread class would be.

Hi:
When I downloaded jdbc classes and executed it with
java jconnect, it worked fine. According to the instructions
in the Installation page, I was getting java/lang/thread unable
to find message. The instruction pages talks about setting class
path only in the paragraphs that follow. I agree with Kevin's
experience.
