Hi,
I completed a project with servlets & JDBC in Windows platform with MS_Access as database. I used ODBC Bridge driver. Urgently I need to change database to MySQL. Deadline date is nearing & I need to impress client by completing before deadline.
Is Linux reqd to install MySQL?
Which driver I have to use? How to get it?
Please save me from this situation.
Thanks for reading this & thanks in advance for suggesting the solution.

Hi Hare Rama,
MySQL is made for Linux, but you may get a Windows version of it in Mysql.com.
You would need a type 4 driver provided on mysql.com site.
Dont worry with a little practice you can make things work.
If have any probs let me know,
Regards,
