If you really need the speed than go with C++. However, if it is a web
application I would recommend you go with Java. The performance for JDBC is
very decent. Don't forget, speed is also determined by your network.
I hope this help

Subject: Help! Deciding on Java/C++ ?
I'm about to start heavy development of an application with MySQL at the
backend. However, I need some help deciding on what language to
approach the project from.
What are the ACTUAL speed comparisons - JDBC vs MySQL++ ?? How is the
speed of ODBC (Win vs Linux?)?
Are there any existing base classes representing MySQL's Server /
Database / Table / Field / Tuple? I need a solid object-oriented MySQL
programming foundation before I start hacking at the project. I would
rather not reinvent the wheel if such classes already exist.
I would really appreciate any help, tips, etc. that you guys could
