Ok, great! I'm eager to hear the feedback from you and all the MySQL++
users. Here's the link to the announcement mail with further information:
MySQL++ has been around for years and is for sure a very welcome and
valuable addition to the MySQL ecosystem. Credits go to all contributors
and developers of MySQL++ !
This new product is not an attempt of Sun/MySQL to harm the MySQL++
project in any way. For example, there are no plans to shut down this
mailing list. The MySQL Connector/C++ has got its own mailing list at
Warren and I discussed earlier if we should share one list. I don't
think so because MySQL++ and Connector/C++ are different:
* Connector/C++ follows the JDBC 3.0 API
* The MySQL++ API is "C++-ish" and rich of C++ specific goodies
* Connector/C++ is licensed under the GPL (+ FLOSS License Exception)
* Connector/C++ is also available under a commercial license upon request
* MySQL++ uses LGPL
* Connector/C++ is available as a preview
* MySQL++ offers GA (General Availability) releases
From http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/Connector_C%2B%2B . You have the
choice! However, there are two mailing lists because the two products
have little in common except of the fact that both are for C++ . Also,
by having two mailing lists we have two mailing list archives which
makes it easier for you to search for information.
All, please be gentle with the MySQL Connector/C++. Its a preview
release. Its very limited in functionality.
