Hi Randy

Both JDBC drivers (type 4) mm and twz are very stable.
The only drawback is, that they both don't use JDBC 2.0 API.

AFAIK mm is on the way to it.
But till it works reliable, you have to stick with JDBC 1.1 API.

Using Java, you definitely should use these JDBC drivers in favour of the JDBC-ODBC

There is a separat mailing list on Java <-> mysql related questions:
At least Mark Matthew (the author of mm driver) is always on this one.
