Subject:MySQL Connector/J 5.1.15 Has Been Released
View as plain text  

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.15, a maintenance release of the production 5.1 branch has been
released. Connector/J is the Type-IV pure-Java JDBC driver for MySQL.

Version 5.1.15 is suitable for use with any MySQL version including MySQL-5.1 or

It is now available in source and binary form from the Connector/J download pages at

and mirror sites as well as Maven-2 repositories (note that not all mirror sites or
repositories may be up to date at this point of time - if you can't find this version on
some mirror, please try again later or choose another download site.)

As always, we recommend that you check the change log

and "Upgrading" sections

in the manual before upgrading as well as the "CHANGES" file in the download archive to be
aware of changes in behavior that might affect your application.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes, patches etc.:

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.15 includes the following general bug fixes and improvements:

   - Fix for Bug#38367, parameters metadata did not reflect the fact that NULL is allowed
     parameter value. So DatabaseMetaData.getProcedureColumns will set isNullable member
     java.sql.DatabaseMetaData.procedureNullable now.

   - Fix for Bug#27916, DatabaseMetaData.getTypeInfo() does not return all the available 
      data types.

   - Fix for Bug#59224, adding 5.5 reserved words to DatabaseMetaData.getSQLKeywords().

   - Fixed an issue where statement comments set via Connection.setStatementComment()
     weren't represented in autoGenerateTestcaseScript=true output.

   - Added ability to include the current java thread dump in the exception message
     given for deadlock/wait lock timeout exceptions, enable with
     "includeThreadDumpInDeadlockExceptions=true" in your JDBC url.

   - Added ability to include current thread name as a statement comment visible
     in MySQL's "SHOW PROCESSLIST" and Innodb deadlock diagnostics, enable with

   - Added an SLF4J logging adapter. Enable by adding setting the connection
     property "logger" to "Slf4JLogger" and placing the appropriate bridge
     from SLF4J to the logging framework of choice in your CLASSPATH. As with
     other Connector/J logging adapters, the log category name used by the
     driver is "MySQL". See for more details.
