B4J Question JDRC2 Timeout (Can't find a database?)

Cliff McKibbin

I have set up JDRC2 with a B4XPages program 'TestJDRC' to try and get it going on my own PC per Erel's video tutorial. In the tutorial, he already had a database on his pc which he connected to. I have not created a database on the pc.

As you can see from the B4J log, JDRC2 is starting and appears to have accepted my first 'command' from the B4A program to create a table so I know the connection is working. The JDRC2 program is crashing on some kind of timeout which at this point I think is that it can't find a database.

The documentation booklet 'B4XSqlliteDatabaseV1' does show a B4J example of initializing/creating a sqllite database but the JDRC2 program does not have an 'init' in it.

I was, therefore, hoping that if the DB doesn't exist, the JDRC2 handler would create it as the sql1.initialize does in b4a, but that may not be the case.

The following questions/answers would help me to get going:
1. I would like to confirm that the timeout is probably caused by the lack of a DB. If not, perhaps there is another problem.

2. I would like to confirm that JDRC2 will not create a 'mysql' DB?

3. Should I be able to create a DB on the pc by using the standard b4j construct as discussed in the sqllite booklet (page 8):

B4J Add the line below in Main module
#Region Project Attributes. #AdditionalJar: sqlite-jdbc-3.7.2
And: SQL1.InitializeSQLite(DBDirName, DBFileName, True)
DBDirName = Directory name of the database.
DBFileName = Database file name.
True = Create if necessary False don't create the database. SQL1.InitializeSQLite(DBDirName, DBFileName, True) In B4J, SQL1.Initialize is used to initialize SQL drivers.
To use SQLite, you must initialize it with SQL1.InitializeSQLite

The problem with both of these is that the config file appears to be using 'mysql', which I presume is not 'sqllite'.

4. If not, how is the best way to create a DB on my PC that is compatible with JDRC2 and 'mysql'. I looked and I appear to have downloaded 'MySql' onto my PC at some point, but don't have a utility (that I see) to actually create a DB.

5. Once I create it, where do I put it? The Config entry directory is 'localHost'. I don't know where that is on a pc.

I appreciate any help to bring my ignorance of this linkage to the databases up a notch.

Thanks, Cliff McKibbin

I have included the logs of both programs, the 'config.properties', and the two zip files.

Note-there was an initial warning in the JDRC2 program that said the driver: com.mysql.jdbc.driver was deprecated and to use this version with the 'cj' in it. This eliminated the message in the log.
