    Q1: i've never used a cummity server. if you want to be independent why not install MySql.

    Q2: the my sql website has a download page called MySql Connectors where you can download all kind of connectors. for jdbc use this link

    Q3: in eclipse you can install the jar by a right click your project and then select Build Path -> Configure Build Path and inside the Libraries tab push the button Add External JARs.
