A good mysql driver is available at:
  http://mmmysql.sourceforge.net/

A sample connection:
  Connection conn = null;
  try {
    DriverManager.registerDriver( new org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver() );
    conn = DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:mysql://" + DBserverName + ":" + DBport + "/" + DBName + "?user=" + DBuser + "&password=" + DBpassword );
  }
  catch( SQLException e ) {
    System.out.println( "argh!" );
  }

I'm curious about a couple things:
1. did my suggestion not work?
2. since jose_tijo answered your question thoroughly, why does he only receive a "b"?

Hi

  I downloaded only the driver from sourceforge.net. Nothing else.
