Hi Monica,

mysql-connector-j is a jdbc driver. You need to read up on JDBC as the next step. I'd recommend taking a look at javadocs for DriverManager and Connection in the standard JDK.

Also, there's the JDBC tutorial here:

Hi Monica,
You will need to install "mysql-connector-java-3.1.12-bin.jar". and add its location to your classpath.
Like if the u have istalled the driver at "C:\mysql-connector-java-3.1.12\mysql-connector-java-3.1.12-bin.jar;" add this path to your classpath.

How this helps.

I agree. Here's the link:
