Thread: Problem with Mysql driver in Schema Workbench

    Question Problem with Mysql driver in Schema Workbench

    I recently downloaded workbench- and edited the file by removing the ^M characters to enable it run in Ubuntu.

    I download mysql-connector-java-5.0.8 and extracted the files into a folder caller drivers which I created inside the workbench- .

    I ran ./ and clicked the tools -> preference menu where I entered the following:

    Driver Class Name: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
    Connection URL: jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/mydwh
    username: warehouse
    password: *****

    When I access the JDBC I get the following error:
    Database connection could not be done. com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

    So, what am I doing wrong? Why can't I access my database although it is on and running.
