    Hi Eric,

    Have a look at downloading the MySql Connector. It's just some wrappers that allow you to connect in much the same way as if you were connecting to a Sql Server database.

    You can find exmaples such as this one on using stored procedures with MySql Connector in the MySql documentation. As far as I'm aware though, you'd need to write the connection and so on manually.
    Hope that helps
