This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
There's more to it than that; you need to configure it after installation, and set up user names. Look in the MySQL handbook, particularly section 2 and section 5. There is a little tutorial as section 3, and you can also use the Java Tutorial, and look for the section called "JDBC." Alternatively there are books; I like Sheldon and Moes "Beginning MySQL," but it is getting a bit out of date.

Somebody else was asking about adding user names to MySQL on this forum today; looking through this forum may give you other useful information.
