    Driver: org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver I only have the newest version of Connector/J
    in my classpath: mysql-connector-java-3.1.6-bin.jar Is CF possibly using some
    old internal version of the driver? Can I make a connection in any other way?
    I have some external java objects that needs a connection sent from CF. Any
    Ideas ? - Per
