Long numbers instead of string data

I have a servlet that I tried ODBC into an access database and it pulls data just fine and even maintains spacing. When I run the same servlet on a Mysql database all I get back are giant hexadecimal numbers for each record where data should be. Anybody know what is going on with that? Thanks.

Sounds like a great question for the folks in the JDBC forum, more than us folks in the Servlets forum.

Moving this to the JDBC forum.
