    Default Heloo!

    Hi there,

    I am new on this forum and i found it very useful for the java
    programmers.

    I need your help:

    Recently i developed an application that connects with sql database(I am using using WAMP server)
    and everything is working really perfect when i compile my code.
    I created a setup for my application and it is running but the problem is that it can't connect with my database.
    I used both Launch4j and Inno setup compiler to build my setup.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thx

    I'd also recommend describing the problem in detail - can't connect to my database says nothing about any exceptions being thrown which describe the route cause. And for future reference, I'd also recommend more descriptive title when posting

    You need to add the database driver to the classpath. Search the internet for how to do this with your particular IDE (command line, Eclipse, Netbeans, etc...each have a slightly different method for doing so)

    Thx copeg, i tried to add the database driver in my classpath but still the problem is the same. The Jar files of my java-database connectors are located in the JRE folder now i put them in the libraries of my IDE (netbeans 7) but still there is no change o the setup. My application connects to the database only when i run it directly from the IDE not with the created setup. I wonder whether the Innno setup compiler is limited for this kind of applications or not. I would appreciate if anyone could recommend me another open source software which can perform this task or indicate me the proper way i can do it using Inno setup compiler.
    Thx

    Does the setup application copy the JDBC driver into JRE's lib folder? or
    Does the application's manifest file contain a reference to the JDBC driver?

    Actually this where th eproblem resides. How can i incorporate the Database into the Inno setup compiler. Because the application
    is perfectly running and access the database when i compile it from the IDE but it throws the exception when i try to access the database from the created setup!

    I finally solved the problem. I put the database driver in the same directory
    where my application is installed and everything is working as i wanted.
    Thx guyz for your suggestions
