Re: No MySQL database listed in Source Database dropdown

MySQL as a source database will be activated in one of the next versions. The code to reverse engineer a MySQL database is already included in the version you have, actually. But it is implemented in a C module (for speed and to share it with MySQL Workbench) while all other reverse engineering modules are written in Java.

Normally there is no difference if a module is written in Java or C or PHP or Lua. But in that specific case we only manage JDBC connections in the Migration Toolkit. Therefore all reverse engineering modules have to be Java modules at the moment.

We want to make a unified "Connection Management", but we did not yet have time to do so. As soon as it is in place, MySQL will appear in the list of source databases again.

Hope that gives you some insight into the issue,
