JDBC Driver question

I installed Apache Tomcat 4.0 and put the JDBC driver - mm-mysql under the /lib directory.
Is it the correct way to install the JDBC driver?
Thanks for help

Yes, it is enough to put the Driver( meaning the complete mm.mysql.jdbc zip file, not just the Driver.class) into any directory included in the classpath.
I agree. Here's the link:
