MariaDB connector to ReadyAPI 2.7

I try to configure database in JDBC request, but can't find MariaDB in the driver list.

Re: MariaDB connector to ReadyAPI 2.7

Hi @alvinkhow,

If the database you want to connect to isnt setup by default you have to do your own research to download what you need and setup the jdbc connection.

So. Ive never heard of MariaDB, but:

1. you need to find out what version of MariaDB you are connecting to.
2. Once you have this version you need to search for the correct jdbc driver .jar files that enable a db connection based on the version of MariaDB you are connecting to
3. Next you need to find the correct latest version of java (jre or jdk) that the driver .jar files use
4. Find out what the jdbc connection string parameters are you need to connect to your MariaDB
5. Setup a new MariaDB jdbc connection string preference in the jdbc preferences in ReadyAPI! based on what you discovered in step4.

Thats it. Basix instructions to setup a new db connection that doesnt already exist ny default.

Cheers
