Problem to import mysql java connector in maven project
I'll try to explain my problem to see if someone can help me:
I have a maven project in eclipse and I want to use Class.forName(dbClass) method to read from a database, so I need to import mysql-connector-java.
In pom.xml I have created a the following dependency:
And I have copied the mysql-connector-java-5.1.9.jar to C:\Users\mysusername\.m2\repository\mysql\mysql-connector-java\5.1.9
But, I still have the error message: Class 'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver' was not found. Bundle 13 does not import package 'com.mysql.jdbc', nor is the package exported by any other bundle or available from the system class loader.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
