I realise capitalising 'classpath' was a mistake. Some Java apps'
startup scripts make use of this, others use the java binary's -cp or
-classpath flag directly. ArchivesSpace's classpath does not include
system directories like /usr/share/java where the mysql-connector-java
package puts its files. You need to copy or link the connector found in
/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java-8.0.12.jar to the main
archivesspace/lib directory.
