Install MySQL JDBC Driver
This step is required only if you intend to connect to MySQL databases. If not then you can skip this step.
Due to MySQL licensing terms the MySQL driver can not be delivered pre-installed with the DataVeil software as other database drivers are.
Fortunately, it is a relatively simple process to download and install the MySQL JDBC driver.
To install the MySQL JDBC driver, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Download the MySQL JDBC Java Archive
For DataVeil 4.7.0 and later: select Product Version 8.0.29 and Operating System Platform Independent. It must be this exact selection.
For DataVeil prior to 4.7.0: select Product Version 8.0.23 and Operating System Platform Independent. It must be this exact selection.
Click on the Download button for the TAR or ZIP file to download (whichever archive format you prefer).
Step 2: Extract the JDBC Driver File
Extract ('unzip') the archive file that was downloaded in the previous step.
Locate the file mysql-connector-java-8.0.29.jar.
Step 3: Place the JDBC Driver File in the DataVeil Driver Directory
Copy or move the mysql-connector-java-8.0.29.jar from the previous step into the DataVeil folder dataveil/dataveil/modules/ext/
If DataVeil is currently running then it shall need to be restarted.
This completes the installation of the MySQL JDBC driver.
