How can I connect to my MySQL database, and be able to query and execute commands?

Hello sportsdude,

are you talking about SQLite-Databases (which are Android-SDK built in) :?:
:arrow: Then have a look at the Working with the SQLite-Database - Cursors-Tutorial.

If you were thinking of MySQL-Databases, the standard JDBC-Drivers could work. (not tested)

Yes, I am talking about to an actual MySQL database at a remote location, not the SQL Lite. As I understand the SQL lite is only for a database on the android phone?

But I am needing something that can connect to a remote MySQL database, I've read tutorials on it but have not found a good one. I've tried to make in a regular java program I would receive and error. I tried using it on the android, but anytime I ran it I would get a class cast exception error.

Is there a good reference somewhere that I could use on a MySQL database connection?
