The package mariadb Java client is now available in Red Hat Software Collections. It can be installed this way:
# yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms
# yum install rh-mariadb103-mariadb-java-client
This JDBC driver works fine with both, MariaDB and MySQL servers. We recommend use of mariadb-java-client over mysql-java-connector where possible.
