You can also use Maven dependencies manager to install and
configure the Connector/J library in your project. Connector/J
is published in The
Central Repository with "
mysql" and "
mysql-connector-java", and can be linked to your
project by adding the following dependency in your
<dependency> <groupId>mysql</groupId> <artifactId>mysql-connector-java</artifactId> <version>x.y.z</version> </dependency>
Note that if you use Maven to manage your project dependencies,
you do not need to explicitly refer to the library
protobuf-java as it is resolved by dependency
transitivity. However, if you do not want to use the X DevAPI
features, you may also want to add a dependency exclusion to
avoid linking the unneeded sub-library. For example:
<dependency> <groupId>mysql</groupId> <artifactId>mysql-connector-java</artifactId> <version>x.y.z</version> <exclusions> <exclusion> <groupId>com.google.protobuf</groupId> <artifactId>protobuf-java</artifactId> </exclusion> </exclusions> </dependency>
