Hi Douglas

This is a Java <-> mysql related question. You should have used:

Obviously DEC UNIX Java 1.1.6-2 doesn't provide the SUN JDBC-ODBC-bridge :)
I anyway would strongly discourage the use of the JDBC-ODBC-brige, because of its slow

Use one of the type 4 (== pure Java) drivers available for mysql.
The two recommended are mm or twz.
They are both good.
You can find them at:
