MySQL-Connections in SQL Developer



SQL Developer
JDBC Driver for MySQL (Connector/J) (platform independent version)


Download the latest “JDBC Driver for MySQL (Connector/J)” from here. Select the platform independent version and download the zip file.

Unzip the connector. The resulting directory contains a “mysql-connector-java-5.1.30-bin.jar” file.

Open SQL Developer and navigate to “Tools > Preferences > Database > Third Party JDBC Driver”.

Click the “Add Entry…” button and highlight the “mysql-connector-java-5.1.30-bin.jar” file and click the “Select” button.

Click the “OK” button to exit the “Preferences” dialog.

When you create a new connection, you will notice a “MySQL” tab has now appeared. Enter the connection details and test the connection.
