Subject:The first preview of MySQL Connector/C++ is available!
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

A new connector has been made available: MySQL Connector/C++. The MySQL 
Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to 
the MySQL Server. You can download a preview at:

  http://downloads.mysql.com/forge/connector_cpp_preview

The MySQL Connector/C++ mimics the JDBC 3.0 API. JDBC is a commonly 
known and well designed API. The Connector/C++ preview implements about 
75% of the methods of the following classes of the JDBC 3.0 API:

  * Connection
  * DatabaseMetaData
  * Driver
  * PreparedStatement
  * ResultSet
  * ResultSetMetaData
  * Savepoint
  * Statement

Using MySQL Connector/C++ instead of the MySQL C API (MySQL Client 
Library) offers the following advantages for C++ users:

  * Convenience of pure C++ - no C function calls
  * Support of a well designed API - JDBC 3.0
  * Support of a commonly known and well documented API - JDBC 3.0
  * Support of the object oriented programming paradigm
  * Shorter development times

You can find further details, including usage examples, on the project's 
MySQL Forge wiki page at:

  http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Connector_C%2B%2B

Please note that the MySQL Connector/C++ is released as a Software 
Preview. We do not recommend using it in production environments or 
systems with critical data.

Feedback, bug reports, bug fixes, patches and so on are welcome and 
appreciated:

mailing list http://lists.mysql.com/connector-cplusplus .
