Hi all,
I'm trying to connect my java application with mysql running on the same machine. I'm also using Connector/j driver.
However its throwing an SQLException i.e the quoted statement seems to be an error

I presume you have checked in the MySQL documentation? Most of it looks all right just at a quick glance.

Do you need the port number 3036? Try omitting that. If that doesn't work, please post the stack trace.

3306 is the default mysql port.
try with this port.

or in case of any error please post the stack trace as Campbell suggested.

If that's the problem, it goes to show what a tiny error can mess up the whole application.
