Subject Re: Options for specifying the classpath to find a database driver
Date Thu, 09 Mar 2017 07:26:24 GMT

I guess the choice belongs to you.

However note that until 7.0.4 using mvn:xxxx in a classpath is not
supported on UNIx (

Another tip for maven syntax is you can set the repo inline: mvn:!junit:junit:4.12:jar
