MySQL Connector/J for MXJ
The MySQLJDBC MXJ object provides max with a simple interface to the
MySQL Connector/J native Java driver that converts JDBC (Java
Database Connectivity) calls into the network protocol used by the
MySQL database. Being that it is developed in MXJ, it is compatible
with Windows and Mac.
- If you haven't done so, Install MySQL and make sure it is running
(covering installing, using, and running MySQL is beyond the scope of
this doc. Try a Google search or similar for more details on this.
Some references are provided below)
- place the mysql-connector-java-5.0.6-bin.jar file in your /
Applications/MaxMSP 4.6/Cycling '74/java/lib/ folder (or whatever
folder you may have defined as a classpath in your
max.java.config.txt file found under /Applications/MaxMSP 4.6/Cycling
NOTE: do not place it in a subfolder or else it will not work. In
otherwords don't copy the entire distribution to the classpath, just
the jar file.
- place the MySQLJDBC.class file in your /Applications/MaxMSP 4.6/
Cycling '74/java/classes/ folder
- Start max.
In the max window you should see something very similar to:
/Applications/MaxMSP 4.6/Cycling '74/java/lib/mysql-connector-java.jar
The included help file provides some simple examples.
NOTE: The help file assumes you have already created a database
called "maxmsp", with a user name "maxmspuser", and password "mathews".
