Hello all!
please tell my what to do if I get such error after pushing "test connection" button in WAS

When I make telnet from WAS server to my MySQL server - it works, I see reply in some binary signs...
But when I loaded tcpdump:3306 and pushed "test connection" there were no packets at all.
I recreated new source - it does'nt help.
I tried the same steps for creating data sourse on other server (WAS7) and it works

btw, i use mysql-connector-java-5.1.12-bin.jar driver

You need to check with the connection parameters (url, user name, password, dsn etc.,) you are passing.
Most of the times we get the exception when connection parameters are not correct.

Try to make a simple jdbc connection from your java class. If that works.. pass on the same parameters in server configuration.

Thankyou Prabhakar for your answer!

Ofcourse I cheked account parameters for my db, they are:
Data sources > MySQLDataSource > Custom properties:
port 3306
databaseName ecms

But how simple jdbc connection will work if it uses that data source configured in WAS which is not workin ?

Check user and password properties.
it should be some thing like user=root password=somevalue
