    Hi there!

    I have the following problem at the connecting stage. When sql explorer is trying to connect to the mysql running on localhost (default port, 3306) first I get this error message:

    An internal error occurred during: "Connecting To localhost/root".
    java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

    Than on the next try (and after this every try) I got almost the same error:

    An internal error occurred during: "Connecting To localhost/root".
    Could not initialize class com.mysql.jdbc.Util

    Params:
    Aptana Studio 3
    Java JRE 7
    SQL Explorer version 3.6.1
    mysql-connector-java-5.1.20-bin.jar (com.mysql.jdbc.Driver)

    (I think this must be about CLASSPATH, but I added the mysql connector properly in the "Change Driver" window)

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Did you add the mysql jar to the 'Extra Class Path' tab?
    It is a little bit confusing but the 'Java Class Path' is only needed for special jar's.
