JDBC stands for Java Database Connectivity, and JDBC driver is a jar 
file that converts JDBC calls into the network protocol used by the 
relational database. Each database provides it's driver, so that various 
java applications can use it for easy access to the database, like ARCo 
Yes of course, you CAN install the Mysql JDBC driver after installing 
Mysql database itself.

I guess you use the package system provided by your operating system to 
install it, so after installation just find out where exactly is the jar 
file located, and for ARCo copy this driver to $SGE_ROOT/dbwriter/lib 
and $SGE_ROOT/reporting/WEB-INF/lib directories.
