    Title says it all. I have started updating my plugin Mineload a lot more and it now uses an external library for SQL (H2 and MySQL) support. I have written a database class that detects whether the driver is already in a MineloadPlugin/lib folder and downloads the preferred JDBC connector from the official URLS. LWC does this with SQLite

    Alternatively the plugin could just include the libs inside a Zip file for extracting.

    Which do people prefer?
