It is faster, seamless integrated, easier to administrate and there is no need to install and setup a JDBC or ODBC driver separately. It was never easier to use MySQL databases in LibreOffice Base. This is for Windows operating systems and LibreOffice versions 4.0.0 and later.

      Please see LibreOffice Base Guide 6.2, p.57 :

      Direct MySQL connection using an extension :
      Starting with LibreOffice 6.2, the direct connection from Base to MySQL / MariaDB has been integrated into LibreOffice. Installing an extension is no longer required.

      This extension seems to be outdated. Connector is now part of the core- LO.
