Hi there.I'm having trouble with the above.I'm using Jdk 1.4 on suse Linux 9.0, trying to connect to MySql 4.0.15.

The getConnection() method just hangs there.It doesn't return, and doesn't throw an exception.The call to that method was taken straight from the manual:
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/test?user=root&password=[my password]");

any ideas?
