I have just managed to download and unpack the JFaceDbc 1.2 and started Eclipse. When I goto the JFaceDbc perspective, it showed a long list of drivers, which I deleted most of. I am interested in connecting to MySQL and so placed the correct hostname and database etc. However, it does not start and the logs tell me that it was unable to find class org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver - i looked in the directory of plugins/net.sourceforge.jfacedbc_1.2.2 and could not figure out where that class should reside. I have the class on my system (though not on a classpath). The question is (finally) where should I place a copy the driver's jar file for JFaceDBc to connect. Thanks in advance. - FK
The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
On the JFace drivers tab, choose your driver, and click the pencil ("Change the selected driver"). On the popup, go to the Extra Class Path tab and add the correct jar file (you may need to select the jar and click the list drivers button also).

Excellent, that worked, I just wasn't going into the Extra Class Path to add the new JAR, I've got a tick on it now. I have setup an alias now and got a connection to my database. Thanks. - FK
