MySQL Question

Why is my Spring boot application failing to load mysql?

I'm trying to build a new application using Spring boot. I selected a few options over at Spring Inializr that generated the following

pom.xml
.

I also have created an
application.properties
file containing

spring.datasource.url = jdbc:mysql://localhost/<schema>
spring.datasource.name=<name>
spring.datasource.username=<username>
spring.datasource.password=<password>
spring.datasource.driver-class-name= com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
spring.jpa.database=mysql
spring.jpa.database-platform=org.hibernate.dialect.MySQLDialect


But, regardless I'm trying to run the project on STS by creating a Spring boot runtime configuration or by issuing a
mvn clean install -U
, I get the following error:

Shouldn't Spring boot have taken care of this? How do I solve it?

Answer

It seems that you have extra spaces in your datasource definition, try to remove all the spaces in your configuration especially before and after com.mysql.jdbc.Driver.

Consider setting the scope of your driver to provided as next:

<dependency>
    <groupId>mysql</groupId>
    <artifactId>mysql-connector-java</artifactId>
    <scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>

And deploy the file in tomcat/lib as you seem to use tomcat.
