Java Question

java.sql.SQLException: Unable to load class: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

I want to be able to connect a program of mine to a database. But since I have never worked with databases before I am following a tutorial found here: https://www.javacodegeeks.com/2016/03/springboot-working-jdbctemplate.html. After following all the steps (to the best of my knowledge) of the tutorial I get the following stack trace:

Is anyone familiar with this type of error? It's probably something pretty simple. The IDE I am using is IntelliJ. I have put my code below:

Answer

Yes, in your pom you have a dependency for h2 like

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.h2database</groupId>
    <artifactId>h2</artifactId>
</dependency>

and you want to use mysql. Either change it, or simply add mysql if you're also using h2, to

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