MySQL driver for OpenOffice.org
The MySQL driver for OpenOffice.org (also called Connector/OO.org) is a "native" MySQL driver for OpenOffice.org. Before the development of the Conenctor/OO.org, OO.org has used JDBC/ODBC to connect to the MySQL Server. JDBC/ODBC adds an extra level of indirection to the connection and is generally speaking more difficult to install but Connector/OO.org.
Please note that this page is not part of the end-user documentation, check [MySQL Forge Connector/OpenOffice for end-user documentation.. This page is part of the project documentation and used by the development team to coordinate their work.
Develop a "native" MySQL driver for OpenOffice.org which is at least as feature-complete as other drivers. Complete the task before the release of OO.org 3.0.
