Copy a ??.jar file of the extracted package to the mentioned 
directories. I don't know exactly the name of the file, but it can be 
something like mysql-connector-java-5.0.8-bin.jar.
I believe you will recognize it.
It will work, however rather make sure you use the same version of 
connector as the version of your database.
