I’m following along the book and up to the end of chapter 5 everything is working OK. I’ve decided to try and use Grails 2.0, which I’m sure is contributing to some of my woes.
Basically the trouble happens whenever I try to change my DataSource from HSQLDB to MySql. I downloaded the connector jar and put it in the TekDays/lib directory. (the database is running as well)
Every time I try to run the app I get the error:
Caused by ClassNotFoundException: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
Is anyone else having this problem? I can’t seem to put the MySql connector (mysql-connector-java-5.0.8-bin.jar) in a place where Grails can see it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
