I am having trouble connecting to a DB from my applet using JDBC and MySQL. I did my research, and appearently the reason why it won't work is because I need to move the class files of the driver (mysql-connector-java-5.1.5-bin.jar) into an applet jar file and sign them all. It sounds simple, but I don't know what that really means. I have used jarsigner previously during a tutorial, but thats it... I am not sure at all how to do this. I realize that this direct method leads to a security risk, but at the moment security for this is not an issure. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
