MySQL Connector is a native Java driver that converts JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) calls into the network protocol used by the MySQL database


Its a jar file used to drive the JDBC interface.

Are you familiar with the concept of a JDBC driver? If not, check java.sun.com; it has much information about that. The MySQL connector is the JDBC driver for the MySQL database.
