Does anyone know of a good tutorial on connecting hibernate within your eclipse code, to your mySql DB?

I am having issues getting mySql set up, I tried uninstalling it and one component just wont, I even deleted the folder location, that does not help. I tried to uninstall it using the "installer" and this did not work, I tried from within the control panel, and nothing.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

So the problem is in getting MySQL to work? Or do you suspect the Hibernate setup to play a role in that? For the latter, my first stop would the Hibernate documentation; it is very extensive and tells you in detail how to connect to all kinds of DBs.

Hi Ulf, thank you.

No, I have not yet tried connecting Hibernate, as I cant get MySql to work correctly. Any help with this?

And as for connecting to mysql/hibernate, do you have a tutorial to follow? That is why I ask so I can forgo the documentation, and tbh those types of technical writings are incomprehensible to me.

I assure you, the Hibernate documentation is of high quality and easy to follow. And Hibernate is such a big topic that you will need to familiarize yourself with its docs anyway, so you might as well start now. But I'm sure you can find other materials by searching for "hibernate mysql tutorial".

With respect to the MySQL setup problem, you might want to post that separately in the JDBC forum. That's where such issue are generally discussed.

Thanks again Ulf

my issue, for now, is installing mySql properly, since I cant even get that one component uninstalled. Its not even on my pc anymore, its odd, but then when I try to download from the mysql site, all I get is the installer, it says the other components are already installed. So would that still be fitting for the JDBC forum?

thanks
