I did it by following the code in these instructions:
JavaRanch CattleDrive JDBC Assignments
I used Class.forName( "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" ); to load the driver with connector/j.
And Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:mysql://localhost/drain?user=bunghole&password=plug" ); gave me a connection.
