JDBC using MSQL works

In the beginning, I was modifying the classpath in the autoexec.bat file thinking this would search for the MsqlDriver. This hasn't worked. Secondly I was using WinZip to open the jar file which seems to be a mistake. What has worked is to use the jar utility to open the jar file and to copy the driver to the directory indicated by the package and then importing this package into you application. The code below was shamelessly ripped off and does work. There may be other solutions but this one has worked for me.
import java.sql.*;
import com.imaginary.sql.msql.*;

public class Connect
{
public static void main ( String args[] )
{
Connection mSQL = null;
try
{
new MsqlDriver();
String url = "jdbc:msql:///StockMarket";
Connection mSQLcon = DriverManager.getConnection ( url );
Statement stmt = mSQLcon.createStatement();
ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery( "SELECT * FROM Stock");
while( rs.next())
{
System.out.println( rs.getString(1));
}
}
catch ( SQLException sql )
{
sql.printStackTrace();
}
finally
{
if ( mSQL != null )
{
try
{
mSQL.close();
}
catch ( Exception ex )
{
ex.printStackTrace();
}
}
}
}
}
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
