Description stefanhinz 2008-12-12 09:06:42 UTC
I can connect without issues to MySQL instances (servers) locally and remotely. Depending on which MySQL accounts I use
I see the databases that I have privileges for. With an administrative MySQL account, I can create and drop databases.
So far, all works as expected.

But I can't expand the database icons to see the contained objects (e.g. tables). Double-clicking does nothing, and
right-clicking gives the options of "Connect" and "Delete", nothing else. I'd expect to see tables for the databases
that contain tables, for example for my "test" database:

mysql> show tables from test;
| Tables_in_test      |
| #123||@@            |
| huh                 |
| ingo                |
| my_first_base_table |
| parts               |
| parts_copy          |
| test                |
| uptest              |
8 rows in set (0.08 sec)

But the NetBeans Database Explorer shows nothing. Bugger.

Maybe this is related to bug #155301 ( which I just reported, I
don't know.

Yes, Stefan, this is annoying and confusing.  This is a duplicate of issue 150660 which we *hope* to get to in this release.

Meanwhile, right-click, choose Connect, a new connection will be made for you (it's a new node in the tree, see below
the MySQL node), and you can open *that* and browse your tables.

We really do want to fix that, thanks for taking the time to log the issue
