While I am overall very pleased with the Eclipse IDE, I cannot install the driver for MySQL in the way in which I think I am supposed to be able to.
First, I installed Eclipse 3.1.1 by untar.gz'ing it in /usr/local. Eclipse works right out of the box.
Then, I downloaded SQLExplorer from sourceforge. I unzipped it in the Eclipse folder--this is the 2.2.3 version (the 2.2.4 doesn't seem to work)--I am then able to get an SQLExplorer Perspective.
I think I am supposed to be able right click on MMMySQL Driver in the Driver View and get a window that allows me to change drivers. I want to change it to the MySQL connector .jar that the SQLExplorer instructions tell you to download, which languishes in /root/Desktop/mysql-connector, but when I right-click MMMySQL Driver nothing happens.

I think there is an edit icon at the top of that view. Can you use that?

The icon with the pencil image, Change Driver? It's the same function as the right-click->Change Driver function from the last post. Does not work.
I am trying DBExplorer, with as much success.
I am using Eclipse 3.1 with MySQL 4.1 on Fedora 4 os. Anyone on a similar system have success Eclipse and MySQL? [ November 20, 2005: Message edited by: Michael Clark ]
