22.4.3.2. Connector/MXJ Base Installation

Because there is no formal installation process, the method, installation directory, and access methods you use for Connector/MXJ are entirely up to your individual requirements.

To perform a basic installation, choose a target directory for the files included in the Connector/MXJ package. On Unix/Linux systems you may opt to use a directory such as /usr/local/connector-mxj; On Windows, you may want to install the files in the base directory, C:\Connector-MXJ, or within the Program Files directory.

To install the files, for a Connector/MXJ 5.0.4 installation:

  1. Download the Connector/MXJ package, either in Tar/Gzip format (ideal for Unix/Linux systems) or Zip format (Windows).

  2. Extract the files from the package. This will create a directory mysql-connector-mxj-gpl-[ver]. Copy and optionally rename this directory to your desired location.

  3. For best results, you should update your global CLASSPATH variable with the location of the required jar files.

    Within Unix/Linux you can do this globally by editing the global shell profile, or on a user by user basis by editing their individual shell profile.

    On Windows 2000, Windows NT and Windows XP, you can edit the global CLASSPATH by editing the Environment Variables configured through the System control panel.

For Connector/MXJ 5.0.6 and later you need the following JAR files in your CLASSPATH:

  • mysql-connector-mxj-gpl-[ver].jar: contains the main Connector/MXJ classes.

  • mysql-connector-mxj-gpl-[ver]-db-files.jar: contains the embedded mysqld and database files.

  • aspectjrt.jar: the AspectJ runtime library, located in lib/aspectjrt.jar in the Connector/MXJ package.

  • mysql-connector-java-[ver]-bin.jar: Connector/J, see Section 22.3, “MySQL Connector/J”.

For Connector/MXJ 5.0.4 and later you need the following JAR files in your CLASSPATH:

  • connector-mxj.jar: contains the main Connector/MXJ classes.

  • connector-mxj-db-files.jar: contains the embedded mysqld and database files.

  • aspectjrt.jar: the AspectJ runtime library, located in lib/aspectjrt.jar in the Connector/MXJ package.

  • mysql-connector-mxj-gpl-[ver].jar: Connector/J, see Section 22.3, “MySQL Connector/J”.

For Connector/MXJ 5.0.3 and earlier, you need the following JAR files:

  • connector-mxj.jar

  • aspectjrt.jar: the AspectJ runtime library, located in lib/aspectjrt.jar in the Connector/MXJ package.

  • mysql-connector-mxj-gpl-[ver].jar: Connector/J, see Section 22.3, “MySQL Connector/J”.
