I using MySql Connector Java 5.1.2 to connect a MySql database to a reporting program called Datavision. Datavision is a Java program. I running MySql uder Ubuntu 12.04 on aLinux box.

I can connect to the database using other reporting software and MySql workbench without problem.

When I connect to the database with Datavision it appears to connect but I do not see a listing of the database tables in the report designer. The programs author tells me that the connection should return the table info.

The class name I use is com.mysql.jdbc.Driver. The connection string is jdbc:mysql://localhost/HOA_Data. The user and password are also passed to the connection dialog.

If anybody has an idea as to what is happening or a possible fix please reply. All advice is appreciated.
