Error creating class: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

    I'm using netbeans4.0 IDE for a mySQL jbdc application. Within
    netbeans the application works fine, I can connect, read and write to
    the db. However when I run from the jar directly I get "Error creating
    class: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" when I try to create the driver using
    Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");

    I did put mysql-connector-java-3.1.6-bin.jar in the classpath for
    compiling sources. Also when running from the command line prompt I've
    added the -classpath including the full directory and name of the
    connector jar file. Still doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?
