You should download the binary version, and then put it into your CLASSPATH
(export CLASSPATH=drivername.jar:.  for example). Then in your java-program
load the driver with: Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver").newInstance();

Then you get the Connection by using
"username", "password");

You should now be able to make database requests.
