Hi,
I want to know:
What is org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver? what is org.gjt?
Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver").newInstance();
and some program uses import twz1.jdbc.mysql.*;
What are their difference and when should I use the import one?
Thanks for explain.
Andrew

org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver is the package containing the mySQL driver. I don't know why the author created this package name, perhaps because it was (originally?) at www.gjt.org in the mm/mysql subdirectory??

import twz1.jdbc.mysql.*;
Is this from a book? Perhaps they distributed some files with the book where the driver is in the twz1.jdbc.mysql package.
