Regarding the JDBC connection to MySQL , where can I find the jar file?, in the link provided all there is is a msi file, and this installs teh connector but do not know whre teh jar file is
OK, I have found it , I wast looking for mysql-connector-java-220.127.116.11-bin.jar. In the JIRA instructions, it says it is contained in a zip file, but now when yoiu go to the download link, it only offers a msi installer , which isntalls it here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Connector J
So the installation instructions needs updating
OK, Starting from this link:
In step 2 : Copy the MySQL JDBC driver to your application server
Get the MySQL driver:
You can download either the
.tar.gz or the
.zip file. Extract the jar for the driver (e.g.
mysql-connector-java-5.x.x-bin.jar) from the archive.
The above link Connector/J JDBC driver v5.1. takes you to the msi file :http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j
If the above are not the instructions I should be looking at , please advise
Anyway, after installing the connector with the msi, I can find the jar file refered to in these instructions
Er, no, the link takes you to a page where you have to select whether you want the .tar.gz / zip file that is mentioned in the segment you've quoted, or an msi.
It might be better if the instructions explicitly said "select" instead of "you can" though. That page has changed slightly since I last needed it.
