Who is the real world

Hola, everyone.
I used Java with MySQL4.0.4 and every thing is OK.
now I want to move to the real world (Server and Client not localhost as I have).
MySQL will be installed in the server, and my application on the client and my questions are:
1. Should the server have a JRE?
2. Where to put JDBC driver? on the server or on the client?

Unless you are running distributed processing on the server, no, the server does not need a JRE. Thus, the client should have the JRE and teh JDBC drivers available to it; MySQL runs fine without those.
