Connecting to SQL database in Java application

Connecting to SQL database in Java application

Connecting to SQL database in Java application

(OP)
I'm trying to connect to my sql database on localhost so I can insert from a Java application but am having trouble with the connecting part. How do I figure out the url and driver I should be using? I've looked up the format for the url but keep getting the 'No suitable driver found' error.




Regards

RE: Connecting to SQL database in Java application

That error means that the program is not finding the driver (the jar file used to connect to the DB) but without more information is difficult to help: https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/

Cheers,
Dian
