I have successfully managed to install MySQL and open up a database I have created.

I want to be able to get programatically get a list of tables in the database and the number of records in them and display them like this:

Table                    Number of Records
--------------------------------------------
TableOne               123
TableTwo               2121
TableThree            21212

etc


All MySQL keeps pointing me too is SHOW TABLES command in the MYSQL Consol.

What's the Java Equivalent?

You need the

ResultSet DatabaseMetaData.getTables(String catalog, String schemaPattern, String tableNamePattern, String[] types)

method from java.sql. You can pick up a reference to the DatabaseMetaData object from your Connection object.
If you don't know the arguments, don't worry, just use null and they will not be used to narrow the search.
