Google is also your friend.
Eclipse, I believe, is Java based and so you need a MySQL JDBC driver to connect.
Eclipse is no way connected in any form with XAMPP so you should direct your questions to the appropriate Eclipse PDT resources some of which I have included links to above to get the correct and official information.
You could be waiting some time for a reply in this forum but in the mean time doing some research on your own might be much quicker and rewarding.
Thanks for the link but I think we already know about it.
