I want to use a mysql connection in jaspsersoft studio. The mysql connector is not included, and needs to be added, as is described in various places, e.g. here. Unfortunatly, it seems to be common knowledge how to do this - no one describes how. I have been trying all sorts of locations for the mysql-connector-java-5.1.30-bin.jar file with no success. Can someone tell me the exact steps on how to add the mysql connector? I have jaspersoft studi 5.5.1, mysql-connector-java-5.1.30 on ubuntu 12.04.

  • From your provided link: "FYI the DataAdapter Wizard has a tab where the path to the driver jar file is entered". Are you adding it to the classpath? What exact steps are you trying? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 1 '14 at 19:36
  • Thank you for poiting me to that link again, I used the wizard tab to add the jar ... that was easy. If you repost your comment as an answer, I will be happy to accept it. – Isaac Apr 1 '14 at 19:42

Regardless of where you decide you want to put the actual library files, you need to ensure it's added to Jaspersoft Studio's classpath.

From your provided link: "FYI the DataAdapter Wizard has a tab where the path to the driver jar file is entered".

  • For those like myself wondering how to do this, there's a tab labeled 'Driver Classpath' in the data adapter wizard. Just click that and then click 'Add'. – Splendor Sep 17 '14 at 17:24
