I am getting an error when I try to create a data source like this:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

I found that I have to add a jar on the classpath and I have no idea how to do it. Can someone help me with this?

Go to and in the dropdown select “Platform independent” then it will show you the options to download the tar.gz file or zip file.

Download the zip file and extract it, within that you will find mysql-connector-xxx.jar file.

If you are using maven then you can add the dependency from the link

Select the version you want to use and add the dependency in your pom.xml file.
