java.sql.SQLException: No suitable Driver for

Thu Aug 13, 2020 8:44 pm

I cannot connect to logicaldoc post installation, http://localhost:8080 returns a 404. Note that I have bounced tomcat and tried again after that. The interesting thing is that catalina.out has:

Cannot create JDBC driver of class 'com.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver' for connect URL ''
java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver

sprinkled throughout.

I went back to the install log and noticed essentially the same error:

[echo] java.sql.SQLException: No suitable Driver for

With regards to the install, the jar file for mysql (mysql-connector-java-8.0.18.jar) is installed in tomcat/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib which is properly set in the classpath in build.xml:

<path id="class.path">
<pathelement path="${classpath}" />
<fileset dir="${lib.dir}">
<include name="**/*.jar" />
<pathelement location="${lib.dir}" />
<fileset dir="${webapp.dir}/WEB-INF/lib">
<include name="*.jar" />

But it seems that the path can't be found or something.

Anyone got any ideas? BTW, I'm attempting this on macos 10.15.6
