I need to change something from ASP to JSP (connection to mySQL)

the ASP line is

DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};Server=***.***.*.**;Database=***;Uid=***;Pwd=***;

here is what I have done so far

<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<%@ page import="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" %>

// mysql driver
String driver = "MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver";

// the "url" to our DB, the last part is the name of the DB
String url = "jdbc:mysql://***.***.*.**/***";

// the default DB username and password may be the same as your control panel login

String name = "***";
String pass = "***";


<p>Attempting to open JDBC connection to:... </p> <%=url%>
// Test the DB connection by making an empty table
String tableStr = "CREATE TABLE test (testid mediumint(8), name varchar(100))";
Class.forName( driver );

// initialize the Connection, with our DB info ...
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection( url, name, pass );

Statement stat = con.createStatement();
<p> executing: <%=tableStr%></p>
stat.executeUpdate( tableStr );
<p> success.... </p>

// close connection

catch (SQLException sqle)
{ out.println("<p> Error opening JDBC, cause:</p> <b> " + sqle + "</b>"); }

catch(ClassNotFoundException cnfe)
{ out.println("<p> Error opening JDBC, cause:</p> <b>" + cnfe + "</b>"); }


I think its the driver portion of the syntax which needs modification but am not sure hence the post.


n.b: I replaced a few strings with "***" like IP / userid/pass etc.. :)
