Domino 8 and MySQL

ChrisMinas used Ask the Experts™

I would like to develop a Domino application which uses as its data store a MySQL db.

I waas hoping someone could offer some advice on what is required for this to be set-up i.e. how do I tell tell Domino about the MySQL db so that I can write agents to create, update, read and delete data.

I have written agents many many years ago for Domino applications to use SQl Server as a back-end db but I have forgotten what I did to allow the agent to access the data - I know about setting up connection, creating SQL etc

It is what is required for Domino to know about the MySQL db that has me confused.

I hope someone can help.
