    Default Java DB, MySQL and MySQL Connector/J

    Dear Friends,

    I am confused about the above subject. I already have an Eclipse IDE installed on my computer but I bought this book "Java How to Program" and there are some issues raised before using the book like downloading Java DB, MySQL and MySQL Connector/J for me to be able to use JDBC to interact with MySQL. My question is that "is it compulsory that I install all this packages or they come by default with Eclipse IDE to be able to use JDBC".

    I look forward to reading from you soonest.

    Thanks.

    Jimi

    Nothing at all to do with Networking. Moving to JDBC.

    You can use JavaDB (not 'Java DB') aka Derby without downloading anything extra; it comes clubbed with the JDK. For other databases like MySQL etc. consult the home page for the product where you will usually find adequate details regarding its use.
