Hi Markus,

Thats pretty frustrating. Did you consider retaining mysql connector/j
driver to use for development / testing and excluding from release
artifact. It would become one of the installation instructions to download
the driver then to use the software.

I only say this because there might be alot of risk with using Drizzle JDBC
Driver for use with MySQL. You will have to do extensive testing to ensure
it works out of the box in the same way as the mysql connector j one (and I
doubt it does) i.e. does it support all types of SQL queries queries that
use temp tables etc Is it even still under active development?

Keith.
