Cannot connect to

Hi all,
I am new to TAMINO and also this is my first try in making an application using java…i m using JBUILDER9 for my java code and my code is as follow:

package serial_tamino;

import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.accessor.TSystemAccessor;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.connection.TConnection;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.accessor.TAccessorException;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.connection.TConnectionFactory;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.common.TException;
import java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.objectModel.jdom.TJDOMObjectModel;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.objectModel.TXMLObjectFactory;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.objectModel.dom4j.*;
import com.softwareag.tamino.db.API.common.TPreference;
import java.lang.Class;

public class Serial {
// URI of the Tamino database, please edit accordingly
private final static String DATABASE_URI = “http://localhost/tamino/Project_Database”;
// use a system accessor to check if the database is alive and
// print some system information to stdout
protected static boolean checkServerAndPrintSystemInformation(TConnection connection) throws TAccessorException {
// Obtain the TSystemAccesor
TSystemAccessor systemaccessor = connection.newSystemAccessor();

if (!systemaccessor.isServerAlive()) {
return false;
} else {
System.out.println( " server is alive" );
System.out.println( “\nHere is some systeminformation” );
System.out.println( “------------------------------\n” );
System.out.println( "The Tamino server hosting " + DATABASE_URI +
" is version " + systemaccessor.getServerVersion() );
System.out.println( "(Server API version: " + systemaccessor.getServerAPIVersion() +
", Tamino API for Java version: " + systemaccessor.getAPIVersion() +
“)\n” );
return true;
public static void main(String args) throws TException {

// Print out a program header to stdout
System.out.println( “\n Serial Program” );
System.out.println( “========================================” );
System.out.print( "Connecting to Tamino database " + DATABASE_URI + “, …” );

// Obtain the connection factory
TConnectionFactory connectionFactory = TConnectionFactory.getInstance();
// and obtain the connection to the database
TConnection connection = connectionFactory.newConnection( DATABASE_URI );

// Check if the connection is available and print out some system information
if ( !Serial.checkServerAndPrintSystemInformation( connection ) )


this is just my first step…and when i m trying to run this program…it gives me the error as
Serial Program
