Configuring the JDBC Run-time Environment

Before you can execute your compiled JDBC applications, you must set up your environment to point to the required JDBC resources.
  • Add the appropriate JDBC driver file to your system's CLASSPATH environment variable.
  • If you are using Simple-JNDI to register JDBC DataSource objects, add your simple-jndi-version.jar and the to the CLASSPATH environment variable.
    Note: On the CLASSPATH, you can either specify the file in its original format, or as an alternative, you can compress it into a .zip archive and specify the .zip archive instead.
