Yes. Use the MySQL client program 'mysql' like this:

There are several. Look for them at:

Also there will soon be one from tcx.

None specialized for MySQL, but you can use any which generates text files or has a ODBC

Yes I had and have (twz and mm driver).
Seem to me, you don't have the driver in your CLASSPATH?
You should spread your problem in the mailto:java@stripped mailinglist.
Especially give us the stacktrace it throws at you and a code snippet where it occures.
You should be on this list anyway. It is a low traffic list.
