I wish did fix the issue. why do getClassLoader() needs to be called using Class object ?? why can't I simply call getClassLoader() using the object of any class present in that package ?? for instance why cant i simply get which Classloader loaded my class using (new Test()).getClassLoader() ? , Well you need to differentiate between classes and objects.
code :
Test t = new Test()
ClassLoader cl =  t.getClass().getClassLoader();

Hope this helps Maybe an example demonstrating how both methods are used will help you to understand things better. So, consider the following class:
code :
package test;

public class Demo {

    public Demo() {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        Class clazz = Class.forName("test.Demo");
        Demo demo = (Demo) clazz.newInstance();
package acme.db;

public class Driver {

    static {
        java.sql.DriverManager.registerDriver(new Driver());

Getting ClassNotFoundException on code: "Class.forName("com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SqlServerDriver");&q

I hope this helps you . According to this page, the class is called SQLServerDriver and not SqlServerDriver. Case is important!
So, try:
code :
difference between Class.forName("Something") and Class.forName("Something").newInstance();

difference between Class.forName("Something") and Class.forName("Something").newInstance();

I think the issue was by ths following , You need to add the driver jar to WEB-INF/lib in your Tomcat application / war file.

help you fix your problem The compiler doesn't give any special treatment to the string constant "java.lang.String" in this call:
code :
String className = "java.lang.String";
Class<String> stringClass = Class.forName(className);
Class<String> stringClass = Class.forName("java.lang.String");
Class<String> stringClass = String.class
