Connecting to an external database

To be able to connect to an external database you need to specify settings for the database. This is done in the Database tab of the preferences window, accessed by selecting File | Preferences.

This window have four settings:

  • Driver - Don’t change anything here. It should be “com.mysql.jdbc.Driver”
  • URL - Should contain the string “jdbc:mysql://ADDRESS” where ADDRESS is an address to your database.
  • User name - Your user name for the database in question.
  • Password - your password for the database in question.

After the settings are properly filled in you must press the Apply and test button to make sure the connection works.
