Description acolorado 2007-10-18 05:24:46 UTC
There are some issues in the instructions for connecitng to MySQL:

via JDBC: (These steps are only valid for the MySQL connector)
Get the newest JDBC driver from
Goto Tools/Options/Security
press the browse button near "Classpath" and browse for the *.jar file(s) of 
your driver.
Open the data source administration dialog (Tools/Data Sources...)
Press the button "New Data Source", in the name field, enter a valid name like 
"MySQL JDBC", and keep "JDBC" as type.
Enter the data source URL mysql://host:3306/DataabaseName
1st thing is that I dont see any Classpath under Tools/Options/Security 
(shouldn't be Java instead)
2nd Tools/Datasources (is this within writer to display the datasources or is 
it Tools/ base conections)

Comment 2 Mechtilde 2008-05-13 20:02:59 UTC
this is an old description for version 1.x

so anybody who has access to this side should set 1.x to the description

Comment 5 Mechtilde 2009-05-02 19:31:56 UTC
