I downloaded MySql 5.6.21 from this link:
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/

It is a zip file and when I extracted it, there's no executable file for installation. I already searched from the internet but can't find any instructions. I plan to install a mysql on my computer and create a database before integrating it in my Java App using hibernate framework. But first step seems hard

Which operating system are you using? If you're trying to install on Windows, there are instructions here. They recommend using the Windows-specific MySQL installer.

For MySQL on Windows, there are 2 installers: msi/exe and zip. The zip version once extracted, nothing needs to be run to "install". The db server can be started right away from bin/mysqld

On Windows: <mysql-path>/bin/mysqld -uroot --standalone
