Subject newbie can't connect to/export from MySQL with ant task
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2010 19:20:32 GMT

I'm trying to export a MySQL database using DdlUtils.  I went through  
a tutorial (http://db.apache.org/derby/integrate/db_ddlutils.html)  
that showed how to export a derby DB and I'm trying to modify the  
build.xml file to do the same thing for a MySQL database on my local  
machine.  The build.xml file is copied below.

When I run "ant export-source-db", I get the following error:

build.xml:16: Could not read the schema from the specified database:  
Could not get a connection from the datasource

I have no doubt that my line 16 is wrong, but I cannot find any  
information about the correct format for connecting to a MySQL  
database.  The full path to the database on my machine is /usr/local/ 

Other information:  My mysql server is definitely running on the  
machine, and the vcctl_user database can be accessed from within  
mysql from the command line (show tables, etc.).

Thanks in advance for any help about how I can properly connect to  
MySQL database.
