For developers details on this jar and its use can be found here (also see the resources below):

- place the mysql-connector-java-X.X.X-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 '74/java/)

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".
