To run Java Servlets and Java Server Pages, I have installed in my PC the following softwares below:
- OS=Windows98
- Tomcat v. 4.1.27.exe
- J2SE/JDK v. 1.3.1
I am now studying Integrating Web Application With Database, for this reason, I have to install the MySQL in my PC. There are things to consider in choosing the type of MySQL to download from mysql.com. I do not know what type of MySQL should I choose. Should I choose the MySQL for Windows98?
MySQL Connector/J is the JDBC driver for MySQL.
Should I choose the MySQL Connector/J? Can anybody there help?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Cathy

Well, MySql has one set of binaries, for whichever version of windows you're on. So on the download page, choose the one that's labelled

Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/2003

and seeing as how you're using Java, yes, download Connector J.

This is a duplicate of the conversation here in the JDBC forum.
I'm closing this copy.
Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. It creates duplicate conversations and wastes the time of the people that are trying to help you.
thanks,
Dave.
