Need help to connect to a database on a web server

Firstly, I need to login to the server using a SSH client

password to login to the server: abc123

port: 4321
database name: db123

To start a mysql client, I need to type the cmd:
./mysql/bin/mysql --defaults-file=$HOME/mysql/my.cnf -u aSQLUsername -p123456

Then I can create new databases/ tables/ execute query...etc

But now I want to write a Java program to access the database.
I've download 'mysql-connector-java-5.1.10.tar.gz' and extracted the files
and I've set the CLASSPATH

And I don't know what parameters should I put in getConnection() in my Java Program,

I've tried:
conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://", "aSQLUsername", "123456");

BUT the Java program output something like --

SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:mysql://
SQLState: 08001
VendorError: 0

Do I need to enter the password of the server(abc123)? OR
Do I need to specific the location of the file 'my.cnf'?

Thanks for help.
