Database/Drivers/MySQL Native/Known Problems
This page lists the currently known problems with the MySQL Native Driver, aka MySQL Connector/OOo.
Empty schemata not shown
Create an empty schemata/database. Create a new Base database which connects to an empty MySQL database. The MySQL database is not shown.
Reason: OOo calls getTables() - no tables - schema not displayed. Setting might even be cached - verify that database becomes visible after creating table (from mysql prompt) in schema.
