Opening a MySQL connection


  1. Launch MySQL Workbench and start a local connection on port 3306.
  2. Create a new schema and name it test.
  3. Back in the design workspace, select tMysqlConnection and click the Component tab to define its basic settings.
  4. In the Basic settings view, set the database connection details manually or select Repository from the Property Type list and select your DB connection if it has already been defined and stored in the Metadata area of the Repository tree view.
    For more information on centralizing DB connection details in the Repository, see Centralizing database metadata.
