Docker Mysql 8, Docker spring boot – Failed to configure a DataSource: ‘url’ attribute is not specified

I have spent 2 days, googling, trying all possible permutations combination, but didn’t work out so finally posting here.

->application.properties

## DATASOURCE
#local connection
#spring.datasource.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/Apple?useSSL=false&allowPublicKeyRetrieval=true&createDatabaseIfNotExist=true&autoReconnect=true
# docker network connection
spring.datasource.url=jdbc:mysql://mysqldb_container:3306/Apple?useSSL=false&allowPublicKeyRetrieval=true&createDatabaseIfNotExist=true&autoReconnect=true
spring.datasource.username=root
spring.datasource.password=root
spring.datasource.driver-class-name=com.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver

->build.gradle

plugins {
    id 'org.springframework.boot' version '2.2.4.RELEASE';
    id 'io.spring.dependency-management' version '1.0.9.RELEASE'
    id 'java'
}; group 'org.example'; version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'; sourceCompatibility = 1.8; repositories { mavenCentral() }; dependencies {
    implementation 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web'
    implementation 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-data-jpa'
    implementation('mysql:mysql-connector-java'); testCompile group: 'junit', name: 'junit', version: '4.12'
}

->Dockerfile

From openjdk:8
copy build/libs/Java_Mysql_Docker-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar java_mysql_docker_jar.jar
CMD ["java","-jar","java_mysql_docker_jar.jar"]

->docker commands

docker network create java_mysql_docker_network
docker container run --name mysqldb_container --network java_mysql_docker_network -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=root -e MYSQL_DATABASE=Apple -p 3306:3306 -d mysql:8
gradle clean build
docker build -t java_mysql_docker_image .
docker container run --name java_mysql_docker_image_container --network java_mysql_docker_network -p 8080:8080 java_mysql_docker_image

->Exception Description:

Failed to configure a DataSource: 'url' attribute is not specified and no embedded datasource could be configured.
Reason: Failed to determine a suitable driver class

same application working fine for locally installed MySQL 8 for below URL

spring.datasource.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/Apple?useSSL=false&allowPublicKeyRetrieval=true&createDatabaseIfNotExist=true&autoReconnect=true

but fails for docker MySQL 8

spring.datasource.url=jdbc:mysql://mysqldb_container:3306/Apple?useSSL=false&allowPublicKeyRetrieval=true&createDatabaseIfNotExist=true&autoReconnect=true

Please help
