Connecting to MySQL using JDBC

Hi all,
Please could someone help me with the connection parameters when using MySQL and the JDBC driver?
- Is it necessary to add the datasource using ‘querybuilder’ / ‘confds’ before calling ‘database’?
- When calling database('databasename','username', 'password','driver','databaseurl'), what is the format of the driver argument? Help and other resources (<>) say it should be:
Then I receive a “Driver Not Found/Loaded” error message.
I get the same error if I try the path to the jar file from MySQL: ‘C:/Program Files/Java/mysql-connector-java-5.1.18/mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar’
Extra Info: I’ve added the driver filename to the java classpath file but am not sure if I used the correct delimiter. (I just started a new line).
Also, the whole syntax for my ‘database’ call is:
conn = database('trial','myuser','mypassword','C:/Program Files/Java/mysql-connector-java-5.1.18/mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar','jdbc:mysql://PC1:3306/trial');

try this code : url = 'jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/'; conn = database('matlab_db', 'root', '', 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver', url); curs = exec(conn,'SELECT * FROM barang'); curs = fetch(curs)
tableName = 'barang'; fields = {'kode_barang', 'nama_barang', 'deskripsi', 'harga','kategori', 'gambar', 'status'};
%allData = {'BRG004', 'KOMPUTER 4', 'Harga murah.....harga ok', '1250000', 'Komputer', 'kom4.jpg', 'Tersedia'};
var1=get(handles.guivar1,'String'); var2=get(handles.guivar2,'String'); var3=get(handles.guivar3,'String'); var4=get(handles.guivar4,'String'); var5=get(handles.guivar5,'String'); var6=get(handles.guivar6,'String'); var7=get(handles.guivar7,'String');
allData = {var1, var2, var3,var4,var5,var6, var7}; tic fastinsert(conn,tableName,fields,allData) toc

At first you need to copy/paste your driver (jar file: mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar in in this folder (by me): C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2009b\java\jarext (The folder is jarext). Now, go in MATLAB workspace and add this code:
javaaddpath([matlabroot,'/java/jarext/mysql-connector-java-5.1.15-bin.jar']) . My connector is mysql-connector-java-5.1.15-bin.jar. You have to put your connector (mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-bin.jar). In this case your code will be: javaaddpath([matlabroot,'/java/jarext/mysql-connector-java-5.1.18-*bin.jar'])* And finally write this in worskpace:
That's it

I tried everything but the jdbc driver is not added to classpath(static and dynamic). COuld you help me out in this?
conn = database('finaldb','root','password', ...
'Vendor','MySQL', ...
and also,
I tried this set of instructions as well
and also tried the above instruction and getting this as the output:
Warning: Invalid file or directory 'C:\Program
> In javaclasspath>local_validate_dynamic_path (line 271)
In javaclasspath>local_javapath (line 187)
In javaclasspath (line 124)
In javaaddpath (line 71)
In jdbcconnection (line 1)

So Malcolm is saying it doesn't matter where you put the driver, just be sure to add the full path i.e. 'C:/folder1/.../folderN/mysql-connector-java-5.1.15-bin.jar' to the dynamic path of Matlab using the 'javaaddpath' function.
