I'm still working through my first Data Tools Platform use of MySQL. I
had exactly the same problems with Derby--never resolved.

I have set up and connected to a MySQL database which I've actually used
successfully from a hand-deployed Java project. So, I know this database
works, though here I'm using a different schema and table within it. The
reason I switched to MySQL was that I couldn't get Derby to accept SQL
statements, but had never used the latter before.

At the following link, you see the illustration of my SQL statements,
Data Source Explorer set-up of the MySQL database to which I'm connected.

In the next link, you see the result of doing an Execute All with the
error displayed as there being no database selected.

Would this not simply be that I don't know what it means to "select" a
database in DTP? I've tried several silly things like selecting various
subicons in the Data Source Explorer view before doing an Execute All in
the SQL statement window--all to no avail. I've been stumped here for
several days.

Both Derby and MySQL have slain my knight before the gates of DTP
success here. I need a knight who knows his way around this obstacle!

A million thanks in advance!

Hi Russ,

I think you'll have more success with DTP questions on the DTP newsgroup.
