connect db mysql illegal use of nonvirtual function call

New Member

Hi, I did a clean install splunk,splunk DB connect 1.0.8 and I manage to get this strange error while fetching the database names(mysql).

" ERROR java.sql.SQLException: java.lang.VerifyError: (class: com/mysql/jdbc/DatabaseMetaData, method: supportsRefCursors signature: ()Z) Illegal use of nonvirtual function call "

Did noticed that mysql updated the mysql-connector-java-5.1.22-bin.jar to mysql-connector-java-5.1.23-bin.jar.

Tried both of them but still getting the error.

Hope anyone can help me with this or is it possible to get the 1.0.7 binaries and install them?

Re: connect db mysql illegal use of nonvirtual function call


Seems like it's the problem with default methods in java 8 builds.
java.sql.DatabaseMetaData in java 8 (new as jdbc 4.2) has new method defined:

default boolean supportsRefCursors() throws SQLException {
    return false;

while mysql driver is compiled against previous version of jdbc where this method does not exist.
