Both seem to be working fine..

but guess only one should work, which is the older version then?

I think that the was for the MMSQL Driver that has now been changed to the Connector/J Driver which uses the com.mysql.jdbc....
You probably have both drivers in your classpath, therfor both are able to resolve???
DO you know what Driver you are using?

Hi Coma,
The MM distribution has stopped, so the short answer is use the com.mysql.jdbc.Driver driver.
Now, make sure you have the latest stable version of the com.mysql.jdbc.Driver by looking at the MySQL Connector/J page.
By the way, last version to-date is 2.0.14.
I agree. Here's the link:
