Groovy connect to Oracle db


I am trying to connect to oracle database with groovy . I have used the following code in groovy console 

import groovy.sql.*
import java.sql.Driver
try {
def driver = Class.forName('oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver') as Driver
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
println e.printStackTrace()
def url= "jdbc:oracle:thin:@"
def username = "user"
def password = "password"
def sql = Sql.newInstance(url, username, password)
try {
sql.eachRow('select * from tableexample'){ row ->
println row
} finally {

but getting the following compilation error

java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:oracle:thin:@

I have place ojdbc7.jar in the /home/jira/jira-server/lib folder and restarted Jira instance. I guess something wrong with classpath but can't found what wrong exactly.

Any ideas how to resolve this?

import groovy.sql.Sql
import java.sql.Driver

def driver = Class.forName('oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver').newInstance() as Driver
def props = new Properties()
props.setProperty("user", "user")
props.setProperty("password", "password")
def conn = driver.connect("jdbc:oracle:thin:@", props)
def sql = new Sql(conn)
def results = sql.rows("select * from tableexample.repdata ")
return results
