I need a little help connecting to a database in Java.
The example in the book I have uses the following:
static final String JDBC_DRIVER = "com.ibm.db2j.jdbc.DB2jDriver"; static final String DATABASE_URL = "jdbc:db2j:books";
It goes on to use it:
System.setProperty("db2j.system.home", "C:/mysql"); Class.forName(JDBC_DRIVER); connect = DriverManager.getConnection(DATABASE_URL);
First off the book uses a Cloudscape DB, I'm using mysql. My question is, where does the information for the JDBC_DRIVER and DATABASE_URL come from? Are the drivers included in the Java software or do I need to download it?
