MySQL Java-connector on Windows?

+3 votes

I have MySQL 5.5.8 under Windows Vista, and I am minded to write Java programs to talk to the server. I believe that a connector is needed for that, something with ODBC in the name--which version is best for my use?

I try to run on my Tomcat 7 on Ubuntu 12.04 with OpenJDK.

I have installed Tomcat with apt-get and also I have installed the libmysql-java package. On starting Tomcat it reports on a stacktrace log, that the mySQL connector is not found (java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").

So I have try to create a symlink in Tomcats lib dir to the jar file and try to modify the properties of the search paths:


The JDBC mySQL Jar is stored under /usr/share/java with two symlinks, I have tried to create a symlink from Tomcats lib dir (/usr/share/tomcat7/lib) to ../../java/mysql.jar but the mySQL is also not loaded. The CATALINA_HOME is set to /usr/share/tomcat7 and the CATALINA_BASE is /var/lib/tomcat7, so imho it should be worked.

How can I create a working IceScrum with mySQL and a shared mySQL connector?

I have a table in Mysql DB like following

mysql> describe APPTBL;
| Field       | Type        | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
| APP_ID      | int(11)     | NO   | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| CREATE_DATE | date        | YES  |     | NULL    |                |
| CLOSE_DATE  | date        | YES  |     | NULL    |                |
| ACTION      | text        | YES  |     | NULL    |                |

While Starting of App, i am inserting the app details with CREATE_DATE and when it is closing, i am updating its CLOSE_DATE. But in case if user is restarting the app, i want to update NULL in place of CLOSE_DATE column. Here is my query,

mysql> update APPTBL set CLOSE_DATE = NULL where APP_ID = 1;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
Rows matched: 1  Changed: 0  Warnings: 0
mysql> select * from APPTBL ;
|    1      |  2013-10-08 | NULL       | XXXXXYYYYY |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

But why i am not getting any result in this??

mysql> select * from APPTBL where CLOSE_DATE = NULL;
Empty set (0.00 sec)

Also, as i am writhing a java program using this where

rs = st.executeQuery("update APPTBL set CLOSE_DATE = NULL where APP_ID = 1");
   // Why it is coming here??
