Stay awayy from the GWE drivers. They are buggy, and not supported
anymore. Also, whenever you use JDBC drivers, no matter the database, you
never import the package for the JDBC driver (except in rare cases). You
only need to import java.sql.*.

You're not making sense above, but I would tell you use MM or TWZ because
they both will get the job done. I'm partial to MM, but I'm the author, so
it's only fair.

You either put the JAR file in your CLASSPATH, or the directory that holds
the top-level-subdirectory of the package name in your CLASSPATH. This is
the same for any third-party java class library.

Read your directions for your JDK on how to install third-party class
libraries. It's spelled out clearly, and can differ between differen't
people's implementations and/or versions.

That all depends on how your system is setup. The per-user way is to put
it in your profile.
