There is no other installation step. Simply link the jar file into your java project. How to do it depends on your particular development environment. For example, in Eclipse I have created a user library (Preferences->Java->Buid Path->User Libraries), which I called "MySQL-jdbc". To it I added the jar file. Then I add this library to any Eclipse project that uses MySQL.
