Subject:MySQL Connector/C++ 1.0.1alpha is available!
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

a new version of MySQL Connector/C++ has been made available: MySQL 
Connector/C++ 1.0.1alpha. The MySQL Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for 
connecting client applications to the MySQL Server. You can download the 
alpha release at:

   http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/cpp/1.0.html

The MySQL Connector/C++ mimics the JDBC 4.0 API. JDBC is a commonly 
known and well designed API. The MySQL Connector/C++ alpha implements 
about 75% of the methods of the following classes of the JDBC 4.0 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 4.0
  * Support of a commonly known and well documented API - JDBC 4.0
  * Support of the object oriented programming paradigma
  * Shorter development times

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

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

A first documentation draft is available at:

   http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/6.0/en/connector-cpp.html

Please note, the MySQL Connector/C++ is released as an alpha version. 
Although MySQL Workbench is using a pre-alpha snapshot we do not 
recommend using it in production environments or systems with critical 
data. Please note, official support is not available for the alpha 
version of Connector/C++.

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