MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org is a native MySQL database connector for OpenOffice.org. It supports OpenOffice.org 3.1 and above. It can be used to connect OpenOffice.org applications to a MySQL server.
Before MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org became available you would have to use MySQL Connector/J (JDBC) or MySQL Connector/ODBC to connect to a MySQL server.
Development on MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org has ceased.
Using MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org has the following advantages:
Easy installation through the OpenOffice.org Extension Manager.
Seamless integration into OpenOffice.org.
No need to go through an additional Connector installation routine (ODBC/JDBC).
