Can anyone help me with my problem? I tried to install a driver , but it don't go as it should. I have succesfully installed MySQL and now I trie to install the MySQL JDBC driver in Eclipse Ganimede.

In green are the links or buttons I clicked on.
In red is the text I wrote in the blank spaces.
In black the text I get : the menu, problemnotifications,....

Java EE

Data Source Explorer

I marked “Database Connections” and open with the right mousekey the menu and clicked on “New
Connection Profile
Create a DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows connection profile.
Connection Profile Types:
MySQL
Name: ( Where I put in the next line)
BeersLocalHost
Next>'

Specify a Driver and Connection Details
Select a driver from the drop-down and provide login details for the connection.
Drivers: MySQL JDBC Driver [+] (I clicked on this button “New Driver Definition”)

Specify a Driver Template and Definition Name
Name/Type
MySQL JDBC Driver MySQL 5.1
First I get this answer:
Unable to locate JAR/zip in file system as specified by the driver definition: mysql-connector-java-5.1.0-bin.jar.
Jar List
I remove mysql-connector-java-5.1.0.-bin.jar and loose notification:
Unable to locate JAR/zip in file system as specified by the driver definition: mysql-connector-java-5.1.0-bin.jar.
When I then want to install the driver “C:\Users\Emmanuel\Contacts\Documents\Programma's\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7-bin.jar” I get :
A driver already exists with that name. Please provide a unique driver name
I can't push then the button “ok”, but just can push the button “cancel”.
If I trie again and this time I do the following steps:

Specify a Driver and Connection Details
Select a driver from the drop-down and provide login details for the connection.
Drivers: MySQL JDBC Driver [+] (I clicked on this button “New Driver Definition”)

Specify a Driver Template and Definition Name
Name/Type
MySQL JDBC Driver MySQL 5.1
First I get this answer:
Unable to locate JAR/zip in file system as specified by the driver definition: mysql-connector-java-5.1.0-bin.jar.
Jar List
I let the file “mysql-connector-java-5.1.0.-bin.jar “ as it is and add the next file
“C:\Users\Emmanuel\Contacts\Documents\Programma's\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7\mysql-connector-java-5.1.7-bin.jar” to and I get following notification :
A driver already exists with that name. Please provide a unique driver name.
So in both cases I get as answer – even if the driver is in the list - their isn't a driver available and when I want to remove the driver and/or add a new driver to it I get as answer the driver already exists.

Could somebody help me, please? I follow a course and can't get further because I can't work by this problem with JDBC.

Thanks forward.

If I remove Eclipse Ganimede and reinstall it, and try to reinstall too the MySQL JDBC driver, I still get the same problems.
