I must perform a project using JDBC and MySql .. can someone guide me within this make an effort to install and run these darn things? I can not work out how and how to proceed. I have not worker with databases during my existence, and so i have no idea. What should i install, configure, etc? Can someone one offer some helpful link that i can begin with please?
There's a really nice tutorial produced by Vogella: http://www.vogella.de/articles/MySQLJava/article.html
You'll find there info how you can connect your java program from installing jdbc driver, creating database and performing simple instructions through java.
Install the database. Add the MySQL JDBC driver for your classpath. And do as instructed from the JDBC tutorial.
