Hello, I have been using OO/LO for years and have used both the Java-Connector but also ODBC under both Debian-Linux and Windows-Vista. When it became available I switched to the Native MySQL-Connector as delivered by MySQL. Oracle now has obviously got rid of that connector. Is there or are there any plany for a native connector to LO/OO in MariaDB? Thanks for your help and regards H. Stoellinger Salzburg

I still see the connector available for download: http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/project/mysql_connector

The documentation is still here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/connector-ooo.html (and from what I can see it also is documented with MySQL 5.5)

Further documentation is here: http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Database/Drivers/MySQL_Native/1.0

And there's more on the Forge here: http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Connector_OpenOffice

I'm pretty sure it will work with OpenOffice.org and MariaDB. It should also work with binary compatible LibreOffice.

Have you tried it and realised that it does not work?
