Connect SQL Developer with MySQL
We are going to configure sqldeveloper to be able to access a MySQL database.
We have installed a basic configuration of Mysql and an old version of sqldeveloper.
We need to download the JDBC driver for MySQL ” mysql-connector-java-5.1.45.tar.gz “, this can be done from the page “https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/”
Once downloaded we unzip it, in our case we do it in the following path “C: \ Program Files (x86) \ sqldeveloper-184.108.40.206.84-x64 \ drivers”, we have created a folder in the developer’s folder drivers.
The next step is to select that driver from the developer, in order to configure connections with MySql.
By default, nothing appears:
Click on add entry and select our drivers:
We select and we have our drivers loaded in sqldeveloper.
To add a new connection we will see a “MySQL” tab.
Create a new connection.
Add connection settings and start using your database.
