I am fairly new to Idea and right now trying to create a new project using Hibernate over MySQL DB. Idea just popped up a dialog window prompting me to create a data source so that Idea can discover the database schema. I supplied the path to the JAR containing the DB driver that I downloaded from MySQl website (mysql-connector-java-5.1.6-bin.jar), and Idea was able to find all the driver classes contained in it correctly and populate the list.
Nevertheless as soon as I select the driver from the list (com.mysql.jdbc.Driver) and hit OK the error pop-up appears bearing the following message: "Incorrect driver and/or connection settings specified, do you want to save the data source anyway?"
I am positive that the user name and password for the DB are correct.
Could you please help to clear out the problem? I sense t must be something simple.
Thanks in advance,
