22.7. MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org

MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org is a native MySQL database connector for OpenOffice.org. Currently, it is in preview status and supports OpenOffice.org 3.1 and above. It can be used to connect OpenOffice.org applications to a MySQL server.

Using MySQL Connector/OpenOffice.org has the following advantages:
