JDeveloper and MySQL JDBC Drivers

February 26, 2010

The trick is to copy the MySQL driver jar  to WebLogic’s lib directory. Finding out which lib directory is not so easy for a newbie -since there are a few possible locations .  This is where Jdeveloper configures your DefaultDomain:


Your install will be slightly different – but you get the gist of it.
