Hi guys,
I have started developing a database intensive web application using MSACCESS. I am however told that Mysql and JDBC are a better option. I however do not know how to make the changes?
1) do i need MySql on my comp? if so where can i get it?
2) who creates the database on the server?
3) what is the jdbc driver i need to use?
I am totally confused abt the issue?
Please help

1. you can download mysql at http://www.mysql.com/
2. Read there doc, then basically you need to using sql statement to create tables.
3. I am not sure which web server u will use, but there are *.jar file that will help the JDBC.

Here is the link for mysql: http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql-3.23.html
only the beta version have free for win. so you can download both standard binary and source code.
do search on jdbc in java.sun.com, and check for drivers. Here is one of what i found. try it. http://www.worldserver.com/mm.mysql/
