Hi there,
I want to switch from access to mysql but I don't know how to do it :| I'd be really grateful if someone could explain me step by step how to perform this task. Right now Im using "dnsless-connection" and that is the way it should be with mysql.

The java code you should change is really short. Once you have download the JDBC package ( available from )and put it in your classpath, just change the driver you are loading:
And of course set the apropiate connection url/port/user/pass.
About the features of MySQL you should check, because maybe there are not implemented some options (ResultSet features,...)
I agree. Here's the link:
