Hi

I am trying to access a remote host for MySQL running on Ubuntu, I have not used MySql before.

At my end, I am running Eclipse IDE on Windows7 Prof.

There are a lot of connectors available at Oracle/MySQL download site.

Should I be using JDBC if I am using Eclipse or Android Studio ?


Addendum:
Got it!
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-j/6.0/en/connector-j-overview.html
MySQL provides connectivity for client applications developed in the Java programming language with MySQL Connector/J.

If you're accessing MySQL from Java, then yes, you'll need the MySQL
JDBC driver.

Questions on accessing databases from the Eclipse workbench will be
better dealt with in the Eclipse Data Tools Platform (DTP) forum.
