    You don't connect to a file the way you did in access, you connect to a server using TCP/IP.

    Maybe this article from our sister site would help you?

    1. Normally you don't need (or really want) to concern yourself with what files MySQL creates and uses for your database tables. If you need to copy, move, or otherwise replicate data, you should be using MySQL's built-in utilities for that, rather than messing directly with the files. All that being said, you should find the databases stored under your MySQL directory, probably in a directory called "data". Under that will be directories for each database, which will contain a number of files for each table.

    2. I'm not a Java expert, but you might want to start here: http://dev.mysql.com/usingmysql/java/
