      Description

      When I rebuild/reinstall roo, it complains that I have no jdbc driver.
      The exception is ugly... but the real problem is that the "HINT" does not include the most important:
      For those of us that use roo as a 'tool' rather than a platform, and are not familiar with the addon functions,
      it would be great to have one more hint:
      [HINT] use 'addon install --bundleId 01' to install 5.1.13.0001 #jdbcdriver driverclass:com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

      In particular, mentioning the '--bundleId' parameter would be helpful, instructive.
      (I keep hoping that TAB will prompt to remind of the available/required params)
      By the time i figure that out, and determine that the bundleId that is expected/required is numeric,
      and then do a 'addon list' (which assigns a new/different Id for the jdbc driver)
      and then realize there are multiple #jdbcdriver in the list, so must read more details
      the whole experience is so much more complicated/frustrating than it needs to be.

      Just sayin' since roo noticed there was exactly one addon that seems appropriate,
      that it would be nice to see a hint for the dummies for how to install that bundle.
