ClassCastException During Startup with mysql-connector-java versions 8.0.23 and Later
When starting Tomcat with mysql-connector-java version 8.0.23 or later, the following errors can occur:
- Change log lock is acquired and released repeatedly
- "Error creating bean" for many named items
This issue is a result of a change made in MySQL Connector/J 8.0.23. The release notes state the following relevant change:
"a getObject(columnIndex) call on a DATETIME column returns a LocalDateTime object now instead of a String. To receive a String like before, use getObject(columnIndex, String.class) instead."
This change is causing liquibase to fail. Please refer to the following link for more details:
"Support drivers that return a LocalDateTime for dates"
This issue is being tracked under Issue# SCA-32509.
- Replace the mysql-connector-java-8.0.23.jar file under <CODEINSIGHT_INSTALL_DIR>/tomcat/lib with mysql-connector-java version 8.0.22 or earlier.
- Restart Tomcat
Code Insight 2021 R3 and onward will support MySQL Connector/J versions 8.0.23 and later. Code Insight 2021 R2 and older will only support MySQL Connector/J versions up to 8.0.22.
