Has Oracle Just Discontinued MySQL MXJ Connector?

with 2 comments

MySQL MXJ connector download page is empty, and MXJ connector is no longer listed on the MySQL connectors list.

It’s not just me because I found this post on MySQL forums –

In your release notes you mentioned that the binaries can be found here:
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/mxj/5.0.html

Unfortunately I am seeing an empty page there. Has this artifact ever
been uploaded somewhere?

MySQL MXJ Connector allows Java developers to easily and transparently embed MySQL database in a cross-platform manner in the installation package. Last release version 5.0.12 is available on maven mirror.

Has it just been discontinued permanently by Oracle? Although MySQL as an embedded database has limited functionality and SQLite is preferred, it makes sense to embed MySQL in some scenarios e.g. embedding database in a package which already targets MySQL.
