hello,

I have started trying to get JWNL set up in Netbeans on Windows, and I've run into a few problems to say the least.

The code I am running is as follows

  String sProjectPath = System.getProperty("user.dir");
        String sPropertyFile= sProjectPath + "\\config\\file_properties.xml";
        String sCreateTableScript = sProjectPath + "\\sql\\create.sql";
        String sDriverClass="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
        String sConnectionURL="jdbc:mysql://localhost/jwnl?user=jwnl&password=jwnl";
        String[] mainargs = new String[4];
        mainargs[0] = sPropertyFile;
        mainargs[1] = sCreateTableScript;
        mainargs[2] = sDriverClass;
        mainargs[3] = sConnectionURL;
        DictionaryToDatabase.main(mainargs) ;

and I am recieving an error saying that I am being refused connection from the database.

The entire error is as follows:

java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect

What reasons would there be to have a connection refused?
