Can't connect to mySQL 8.0 using Toplink and mysql connector version 8.0.11

I'm upgrading from MySQL 5.1 to MySQL 8.0.  I have a java project that uses Toplink to connect to the database.  I've updated the jdbc drivers but when I try to connect I get this error "Public Key Retreival is not allowed".  I've set UseSSL to false but I still can't connect.  I'm assuming there must be some new parameters that I also need to set up , but I don't know what they are or where to look for them.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might try


Open in new window

but It's conceivable that Toplink does not yet support 8.0. (Check the docs)

there is a new option.  It's (surprise, surprise) allowPublicKeyRetrieval=true
That solved my problem.
