You need to add JDBC MySQL driver to Netbeans. From menu bar, select Run option and do the followings to add MySQL JDBC driver to Netbeans.

Run -> Set project configuration -> select Libraries under Categories -> Add Library -> select MySQL JDBC Driver -> Click OK (keep Build projects on Classpath checked)
