Hello.
I am trying to use the
org.hsqldb.util.DatabaseManagerSwing
utility in order to manage a mySQL database by using
the following parameters:
--driver com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
--url jdbc:mysql://"..."/"..."

While the application starts normally I am getting
the following exception in a message box:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

The same applies when I select the "File>Connect"
menu option within the application and then:
- Type: MySQL Connector/J
- Driver: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
- URL: jdbc:mysql://"..."/"..."

What is the way to overcome the problem?
I downloaded the latest jdbc driver for mySQL, but
putting it in the classpath will be enough?

kind regards
Menelaos
