Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (SOLR-8521) Add documentation for how to use Solr JDBC driver with SQL client like DB Visualizer

Yes, I do think it should be in the Ref Guide - it's something general users may want, so
we should guide them on how to connect it. The PDF attached is mostly screenshots - if the
hope is that the Ref Guide will show screenshots, it would be helpful if those were attached
directly to the issue. I don't know that the page makes sense with that many step-by-step
screenshots - we don't even have that many covering the Admin UI, and DBVisualizer is not
an application developed by this community - but a few key ones would probably be helpful.

As for where it should go, I wonder if we should take a step back and think about the overall
organization of docs for this new features. My current understanding is that the JDBC client
is only used with Parallel SQL features, but is it more than that (either today or intended
to be more in the future)? If so, we should spend a minute or two thinking about the use cases
to figure out the best place for a new section.

_edit_: by the way, I don't mean to dismiss the effort to make those screenshots, they are
very helpful and clear.

> Currently this requires the following:
> * a JDBC SQL client program (like DBVisualizer or SQuirrelSQL)
> * all jars from solr/dist/solrj-lib/* to be on the SQL client classpath
> * solr/dist/solr-solrj-6.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar on the SQL client classpath
> * a valid JDBC connection string (like jdbc:solr://SOLR_ZK_CONNECTION_STRING?collection=COLLECTION_NAME)
> * without SOLR-8213, the username/password supplied by the SQL client will be ignored.
