Database connection to godaddy

Postby cmccully on Wed Nov 28, 2012 5:44 am


I am trying to connect to a Godaddy database using Studio 9 Data Source Explorer. When I test the conenction I get a Ping failed error with this very helpful message:

java.lang.Exception: Connection failed with unspecified error.
at org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.DriverConnectionBase.internalCreateConnection(
at org.eclipse.datatools.enablement.internal.mysql.connection.JDBCMySQLConnectionFactory.createConnection(
at org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.internal.ConnectionFactoryProvider.createConnection(
at org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.internal.ConnectionProfile.createConnection(
at org.eclipse.datatools.connectivity.ui.PingJob.createTestConnection(

In 2011 Godaddy dropped java support. Is there an alternative way to connect to a db with the Data Source Explorer? Perhaps a different driver? Or do they have to be java based?

Thanks for any help you can give!
