Hello,

I wonder how to get all databases from a MySQL system? I'm used to get a normal connection, metadata etc. But I can only connect to predefined database in the connection parameters.

Help is much appreciated

Ray,
Do you have access to this server? If not, maybe they are trying to restrict your access.

If you do have access, you could query a system table.

Thanks Jeanne,

your answer threw light in the right direction!

MySQL seems to need the getCatalogs method to get it going. Here is the basic code that worked fine for me:
