I was developing a java web app in a winxp machine and am now moving the work to a windows 7 machine. The tools I am using are Netbeans 6.5.1, MySql5.1 and Glassfish v2(bundled with netbeans).
I am having difficulty with the connection pools in the Windows7 machine. I created a connection pool, but when I ping, I am getting the following error:
I understand that normally this could mean that the jdbc-driver for MySQL is missing. However I wonder how this could be possible as I can connect to the mysql database via netbeans( under 'services ->Databases) and execute queries. The connection pool I set in the glassfish server in the Win 7 machine is identical to the one in the WinXP machine, but the the WinXP connection pool works fine, as in the ping is sucessful. I hope someone can advise me on what could be the problem. Thanks.
