the difficult part is to build the QMYSQL plugin. Johan Thelin provided a good description for it.
Once you have built the plugin using MySql with Qt should work like a charm.
Taken from QSqlDatabase documentation:
QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QMYSQL");
bool ok = db.open();
Not meaning to start a flawmewar but please consider that the mysql driver is GPL which makes your app also GPL unless you pay for it. I am in the process of converting my database from MySql to PostgreSQL because of features, Oracles reputation and license.
