In the past I have always had success connecting data sources. However, I am really struggling connecting both my Oracle database and my MySQL databases to CF16. I believe I have the drivers in place but no matter what I do I still am cursed with the "No suitable driver available" message.
Trying to connect to Oracle 12c and MySQL latest version 8.
For oracle I am using what i did with CF11 and that is the jdbc oracle thin driver.
For MySQL I am using jdbc mysql driver.
Both are located in the /cfroot/cfusion/lib directory (or at least I think they are).
Any help would be appreciated.
MySQL :: Download MySQL Connector/J (Archived Versions) [The MySQL web site says "MySQL Connector/J 8.0 is highly recommended for use with MySQL Server 8.0, 5.7, 5.6, and 5.5. Please upgrade to MySQL Connector/J 8.0". Nevertheless, should this new driver be incompatible with ColdFusion 2016, download and use version 5.1.46.]
