THIS IS FORK. OFFICIAL REPOSITORY IS HERE : https://github.com/mysql/mysql-connector-j
NOTE: JIA NOW SUPPORT MYSQL 5.7!!! THIS FIX IS NOW OBSOLETE!!!
This fork provides hardfix. It was made to replace deprecated "storage_engine" variable to "default_storage_engine", so apps can work with MySQL 5.7 instead of throwing exception.
My recent snapshot is /mysql-connector-java-5.1.38-SNAPSHOT-bin.jar (it was compiled under Debian 8.1 x64 with JDKv1.5 and JDKv1.8)
