I got this help from Victor that make the mysql - kaffe possible (maybe it
is known long time since, but just wish to share it out :))
Do the following:-
"set env variable
export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH: mysql-connector-java-2.0.14-bin.jar
assuming you are using bash"
Now, kaffe sees the mysql-j connector.
A big thank you to Victor King
