To be able to run Java Servlets and Java Server Pages, I have installed in my PC the following softwares below:
- OS=Windows98
- Tomcat v. 4.1.27.exe
- J2SE/JDK v. 1.3.1
I am now studying Integrating Web Application With Database, for this reason, I have to install the MySQL in my PC. There are things to consider in choosing the type of MySQL to download from mysql.com. I do not know what type of MySQL should I choose. Should I choose the MySQL for Windows98? Or should I choose MySQL Connector/J which is the JDBC driver for MySQL? Can anybody there help?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Cathy

Yes, this is the database itself.

Yes, this is the JDBC driver which connects the JVM and the database.
