This issue does not exist in KS 6
Starting in Katalon Studio v7, we use MySQL Connector v8.0.17 to support MySQL up to version 8. The com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement class is deprecated in this version. You should follow this guide for further info and migration: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-j/8.0/en/.
And what about SSMS?
