Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4725) MySQL jdbc connector/driver jars don't show up in the database pool wizard
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2009 03:35:15 GMT


Rex Wang commented on GERONIMO-4725:

Well, that is not a good user experience.
The original intention of the dependency filter is to help user to find the specific jar from
a bunch jars in the list. That is, if there is no filter constaint on this gbean, the list
box on the portlet will show all the jars(might contain db2, informix... and others jars even
not a jdbc driver.), And that is also a bad user experience I think.
let the user choose a Driver JAR is because there might many versions of one type of jdbc

However, I also agree that the filter is too strict when try to find the jars. maybe we can
use some sorts of regular expression. I'd like to open an improvement later.

> MySQL connector/driver jars don't show up in the database pool wizard when added to the
repository even if you download the 3.x.x driver using the exact same wizard.
> Steps to reproduce;
> - Start a newly installed geronimo 2.1.4. server (I only tested on WindowsXP)
> - login to the web console
> - Start adding a connection pool using the 'Geronimo database pool wizard'
> - Choose 'MySQL' for 'Database Type' and click on 'Next' to go to the next step
> - The multiple select control labeled; 'Driver JAR' is empty at this time, choose 'Download
a driver' and install the  MySQL Connector /J 3.1.12
> - When done installing the connector the wizard refuses to show the installed connector/driver
> - The problem also accures also when mannually adding the latest MySQL connector to the
repository (under the group "mysql")
> This bug is not present in geronimo 2.1.3 (tested on WindowsXP)
