    Get familiar with the database. Use the command line to connect to the database, create users, create tables, and learn about database normalization, keys, indexes, and referential integrity (dependent upon the storage engine for MySQL) . Next, download the connector/J driver to use JDBC such that you can access the database via java. I would recommend doing the former prior to the latter.

    I am following instructions:
    -If you are using Netbeans IDE, than you have already the driver at hand. Inside the Projects tab, right click on the Libraries node and select Add Library option. From the list of options, select MySQL JDBC Driver.

    1) I created a new project in Netbeans: learningdatabase
    2) added the MySQL JDBC Driver to it
    3) and compiled the next small app
    4) and got an error code
    So what is going on next?

    ========================================
    command line instructions:

    -If you want to compile the examples from the command line, go to the site MySQL :: MySQL Connectors and download the MySQL connector for the Java language.

    I downloaded that link but when I try this:
    $ javac zetcode/Version.java
    I get:
    javac: file not found: zetcode/Version.java

    Assuming, that you have put the connector jar file into the lib directory and using package zetcode, you compile and run the first example this way.

    and when I do:
    java -cp .:lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.13-bin.jar zetcode/Version
    I get:

    Hello.
    Looks like the username you are using "testuser" doesn't have enough privileges.
    Try to give privileges at the MySql command using GRANT command and run your program again.

    Hello.
    I can give you the GRANT command. But I want you to try sincerely first.
    Just google "execute GRANT command in MySql".
    Find that command and just type at the MySql command prompt (the way you typed "help") earlier.
    Grant full privileges to the "testuser".

    Syed.

    Don't worry I'll find it but it is like a whole new subject this mysql
    It is overwhelming and try to understand where to start!
    First there is the installing issue with many, many command line --I love--
    stuff. I got a nice looking manual but very php based...
    MySQL Tutorial
    So I am learning php as well, besides studying unix basics which is very
    use full for that command line installing stuff, right!

    (I feel like the guy in a circus throwing balls and adding
    another and another and another one etc.....)

    The error is just one reason to read post #2 again. Moving strait into JDBC can cause more problems along the way - understanding how to use the database via command line interface helps to decouple JDBC/java errors from database errors, and gives you a better understanding of both such that debugging and problem solving in the long term is much easier.

    "Get familiar with the database. Use the command line to connect to the database, create users, create tables, and learn about database normalization, keys, indexes, and referential integrity (dependent upon the storage engine for MySQL) "

    That is through unix right?

    so trying this one:
    mysql -u root -p

    and getting this:
    Enter password:
    ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    But before even getting to:
    mysql> GRANT ALL ON demo.* TO user1@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'mypassword';

    http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/mysql-c...root-password/
    So what is my root mysql password different from my root password?
    I do not remember setting it hahahahahaha!

    Should I install mysql again in order to get that passwd?

    Yes. Use the terminal

    ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
    Did you ever set the password for root? If not, remove the -p. If yes, verify you are entering the correct password. Or, change/set your password via mysqladmin

    Mann this is not easy, I got so far now:

    Ok I checked in as ROOT and did this

    but now I can not get out anymore.....

    --- Update ---

    OK HERE IS THE CORRECT SCRIPT FOR ME:

    Stopping MySQL
    First stop the service. You can either do this using the preference pane if you have that installed if you don’t you should be well aware of doing in from the terminal.

    Skipping Access Tables
    Alright – so open up a Terminal window and execute:

    For MySQL 5 Installations do – (thanks to RY for pointing it out):
    /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables

    Running the Reset
    Ok – so you have safe_mysqld running in one Terminal window, now open up another one and execute “/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql mysql” (no quotes). If you aren’t familiar you are opening up the MySQL console and opening the mysql table.

    Write the reset query into the console as follows:

    UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('YOUR_PASSWORD')
    WHERE Host='localhost' AND User='root';
    flush privileges;
    Replacing “YOUR_PASSWORD” with your desired password of course. Once you’ve done that just exit the console “exit;” close the safe_mysqld execution and restart your MySQL server in normal mode.

    --- Update ---

    thanks copeg I got in with my new created password!

    --- Update ---

    here is a link skip-grant-tables Now the MySQL server should be running wide open (ie. every user that logs in has full access) - See more at: How Can I Recover My Lost MySQL root Password? | franzone.com

    but after skip-grant-tables
    Now the MySQL server should be running wide open (ie. every user that logs in has full access) - See more at: How Can I Recover My Lost MySQL root Password? | franzone.com

    Should I be worried and do something about this?

    Yes. You should not allow all users full access to your database. You may also need sudo access to start/stop, which could be one of your issues. Try running the following to start:
    sudo mysqld_safe --user=root
    Look at the docs for how to supply password. To shutdown try:
    sudo mysqladmin --user=root shutdown
    I don't recall the full setup on my system and don't know the full setup on your system, so the above may need some toying to function on your system. You can also end the command with an '&' to fork the process (have it run in background)

    Default Re: I installed MySQL (32bits) on my Imac (OSX 10.6.8), but what should I do next?

    For the moment I stopped the server like this:
    sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM stop
    and got:
    Password:
    Stopping MySQL database server
    iMac:mysql willem$

    So I am safe for the moment!

    But having issues with
    user_name
    password
    host_name

    I do not know where they are and how to set them
    I am looking.......
    (Have set my root passwd at least!)

    --- Update ---

    The host_name seems to be the localhost and when doing this:
    iMac:mysql willem$ telnet localhost 3306
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    4
    5.1.70,9xsW<c85B+Q4Q{7=k'Connection closed by foreign host.
    iMac:mysql willem$

    so what means this now (have some more manuals and will start reading)

    a) if you are trying to create a user, you should use the create user syntax rather than inserting into any user tables b) If the user table is a table you wish to create, then Create and Select a database

    Default Re: I installed MySQL (32bits) on my Imac (OSX 10.6.8), but what should I do next?

    Here is some basic info of getting started with mysql on comment line.
    Next I will see how this stuff connects with java, right?

    Reseting root password MySQL
    (file location on my comp: ls /usr/local/mysql/bin)

    1) Stopping MySQL:
    sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM stop

    2) login as root: sudo -s password (exit to go out)
    (ask: whoami)

    3) /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe –skip-grant-tables #ind the correcgt path on comp

    4) Running the Reset

    Ok – so you have safe mysqld running in one Terminal window, now open up another one and execute “/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql mysql” (no quotes). If you aren’t familiar you are opening up the MySQL console and opening the mysql table.

    Write the reset query into the console as follows:

    UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('YOUR_PASSWORD')
    WHERE Host='localhost' AND User='root';
    flush privileges;
    Replacing “YOUR_PASSWORD” with your desired password of course. Once you’ve done that just exit the console “exit;” close the safe_mysqld execution and restart your MySQL server in normal mode.

    To Start and Stop Server
    sudo /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM/MySQLCOM stop /start #from root
    here is the mysql stuff located:
    /usr/local/mysql/bin # on my comp
    go to the above address and
    from root authority do: ./mysqld_safe & #to start
    or (of course always from root: sudo -s)
    /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe & #to start
    ./mysqladmin -u root -p shutdown # to shut down always from root
    ps -ef | grep mysqld # to see the thread



    Log in, Creating a Database and Quiting Mysql
    -mysql -u root -p #log in
    (password mysql>)
    create database xxxxx; #create a database
    -mysql> use xxxxx; #going into exsisting database
    or
    mysql -h host -u user -p xxxxxx
    (Database changed)
    -mysql> show tables;
    -mysql> \q (quit) #log out

    Example Create Table:
    (from: MySQL for Absolute Beginners )
    -mysql> create database bookstore;
    -mysql> use bookstore;
    -mysql> show bookstore;

    -mysql> DROP TABLE IF EXISTS books;
    CREATE TABLE books (
    id int unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment, # Unique ID for the record
    title varchar(255) NOT NULL, # Full title of the book
    author varchar(255) NOT NULL, # The author of the book
    price decimal(10,2) NOT NULL, # The price of the book
    PRIMARY KEY (id) );
    -mysql> show tables;
    -mysql> explain books;
    Example Adding Records:

    mysql> INSERT INTO books ( title, author, price )

    VALUES ( "Nineteen Eighty-Four", "George Orwell", 8.99 ),
    ( "The Grapes of Wrath", "John Steinbeck", 12.99 ),
    ( "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle", "Haruki Murakami", 7.99 );


    Example Retrieving Records:

    (SELECT fieldNames FROM tableName [WHERE criteria])

    -mysql> SELECT * FROM books;

    -mysql> SELECT * FROM books WHERE id = 2;

    -mysql> SELECT * FROM books WHERE title = "Nineteen Eighty-Four";

    -mysql> SELECT * FROM books WHERE price < 10 AND price > 5;

    -mysql> SELECT title, author FROM books;

    Default Re: I installed MySQL (32bits) on my Imac (OSX 10.6.8), but what should I do next?

    So through the command line I started mysql and I can get into mysql using my password (by owning to command line root)!
    -I created a test database called: bookstore;
    -created a table called: books;
    -added some records to that table (id, title, author and price)!
    -and finally filled up the database with some books.

    Now turning to Java I should be able to connect. right?
    The principle connector code line would look like this?

    Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(
    "jdbc:myDriver:myDatabase",
    username,
    password);
    I have tested my host through unix, which is:

    ysql> select @@hostname;
    +------------+
    | @@hostname |
    +------------+
    | iMac.local |

    So my question is what would be in my case (connecting with bookstore/ books):
    "jdbc:myDriver:myDatabase"
    username
    password

    ====================
    the three arguments of getConnection are they:
    1) path to the jdbc driver (have the driver but can not find it)
    2) username = mysql or a to be created usergroup for mysql (found one in the file group called _mysql)
    3) passwd = mysql general passwd or a new to be created passwd for the usergroup

    Default Re: I installed MySQL (32bits) on my Imac (OSX 10.6.8), but what should I do next?

    when feeding for:
    1) "MySQL:jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/"
    2) root
    3) the root password (of mysql root of course) I get:

    29-ago-2013 15:31:26 learningdatabase.connectToAndQueryDatabase main
    GRAVE: null
    java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for MySQL:jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/
    at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager .java:602)
    at java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(DriverManager .java:185)
    at learningdatabase.connectToAndQueryDatabase.<init>( connectToAndQueryDatabase.java:33)
    at learningdatabase.connectToAndQueryDatabase.main(co nnectToAndQueryDatabase.java:24)
    BUILD SUCCESSFUL (total time: 1 second)

    So where to get the driver at the NetBeans context?
    (I can see the driver at the project folder of the above application at the directory: libraries,
    called: MySQL JDBC Driver - mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar)

    I got the Java connection through the jdbc driver, so mysql is talking to Java finally
    1) "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/mysql" on my comp
    2) root
    3) passwd of the mysql root user
    I can deal with the "pure" Java programming but,
    these environmental issues, of setting drivers etc., are really challenging!

    thread closed!

    First Add MySql Driver from libraries in NetBean then
    Use this code
