MySQL Connector/MXJ 1.0.5-alpha is available for download.
MySQL Connector/MXJ is a JMX MBean for deploying and managing a MySQL
database. This makes it easy for Java developers to deploy applications
which require a database by reducing installation barriers for their
Connector/MXJ requires a JMX v1.2 compliant MBean container, such as
JBoss version 4.
As a JMX MBean, Connector/MXJ makes the MySQL database appear to be a
java-based component. It does this by determining what platform the
system is running on, selecting the appropriate binary, and launching
the executable. It will also optionally deploy an initial database, and
via standard JMX management APIs present (and allow the setting of)
parameters which are appropriate for that platform.
Included are instructions for deploying to JBoss. Please, be sure to
read the "README" and the "GettingStarted.txt" files.
New in the 1.0.5-alpha version is the ability to have the MBean start
the MySQL database upon startup.
Also in this release, if you're using JBoss, we've taken advantage of
the JBoss life-cycle extension methods so that the database will
gracefully shut down when JBoss is shutdown.
