I must have done something to eclipse to make this happen but I'm not sure what.
When I first set up mysql with eclipse I copied the mysql-connector-java-3.0.14-production-bin.jar file into the lib\ext directory of my SDK and it's still there. I've gone into the project=>properties=>java build path=>libraries and it's there.
Could someone give me some pointers on how to track down the problem?
I suspect it's related to my making eclipse remember my decision with respect to running even when compile errors are present because it was working until I accidently hit the wrong button in haste. This was inadvertent - how can I reverse it?
