I managed to set up kaffe on a linux without any difficulty.
I can get the following, when I do > java -version.

[root at son-ag Users]# java -version
Kaffe Virtual Machine
Copyright (c) 1996-2000

Engine: Just-in-time v3   Version: 1.0.6   Java Version: 1.1

I am able to run a simple HelloWorld program, but I hav problem connecting 
it to mySQL database. I am reporting my findings here, hope can share this 
with all of you :)

I tried to execute a jar file > java -jar test.jar, I got the following 

05-12-2002 12:41:57.239 [INFO] [main] JDBC Driver class: 
05-12-2002 12:41:57.241 [ERROR] [main] Cannot find the database driver 
classes: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com/mysql/jdbc/Driver
05-12-2002 12:41:57.242 [ERROR] [main] Failed to initialize database 
connection, exiting...

Obviously, the mySQL-JDBC driver cannot be located.

In a Sun java SDK, what I did is copy mysql-connector-java-2.0.14-bin.jar to 
/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/lib/ext/ and everything works fine.

Where should I copy this file to when using kaffe? I have distribute this 
.jar file almost everywhere > locate connector


But sadly, I still cannot get it right :)

Please advice.
