when i install mysql it can't run as awindows service((this is 1st problem))
when i want to configure or add the drvier and try to find the database ,give me a message ((mysql error))
i need to know is the 1st problem it's effective???
& how to fill the feilds on the driver;
plz be clear ...may be u dont have the jar files for that
I dont kno exactly what u means ...are u creating connection with the database or just installing it into ur system
plz tell me ur problem cleary, i didn't understood what u saying ?
State your problem clearly...:-)
I dint get your question Properly , But anyways let me explain how to configure to u ,
1 . First install MySQl , where u can set the UserName and password for Mysql , Try to open that using Query Browser or Cmd Line , By that u can make sure ur MySql works
2 . Then Write a Simple Jsp , wich connects to the Database , suppose if u r using Tomcat Server to run the JSP ,Put ur jar file (MySql Driver) inside your application library or common library.
Try to follow these steps still if u gettin the error ,then send the error , here lots of java guru's are there to help u...ask more qn so that u get more and more comfortable to the language
