    ClassNotFound usually indicates that you are missing the class from the classpath, make sure you add the mysql connector to your classpath.

    Download from MySQL :: Download Connector/J
    Read documentation at MySQL :: MySQL 5.0 Reference Manual :: 20.3 MySQL Connector/J

    Enjoy!

    Basically Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver") will try to find the class mentioned as a string and load it into memory.
    So you need to download mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar and add into classpath.
