java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not load JDBC driver class [com.mysql.jdbc.Driver] – Spring Boot / Spring Batch error. How to fix?

The reason for this error is you have missed MySQL dependency in your maven / gradle file.

Add this in your build.gradle.

runtimeOnly 'mysql:mysql-connector-java'

In case of maven,

<dependency>
        <groupId>mysql</groupId>
        <artifactId>mysql-connector-java</artifactId>
        <version>8.0.15</version>
</dependency>
