Subject:MySQL Connector/J 3.0.5 GAMMA Has Been Released
View as plain text  
Hash: SHA1


MySQL Connector/J 3.0.5 a new version of the Type-IV all-Java JDBC 
driver for MySQL has been released.

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

Note that not all mirror sites 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.

This is a bugfix release for the feature set that has been frozen for 
version 3.0 of Connector/J. This will most likely be the last GAMMA 
version of the 3.0 series, and 3.0.6 is expected to be declared STABLE.

 From the changelog:

     * Fixed Buffer.fastSkipLenString() causing ArrayIndexOutOfBounds 
exceptions with some queries when unpacking fields.
     * Implemented an empty TypeMap for Connection.getTypeMap() so that 
some third-party apps work with MySQL (IBM WebSphere 5.0 Connection pool).
     * Added missing LONGTEXT type to DBMD.getColumns().
     * Retrieve TX_ISOLATION from database for 
Connection.getTransactionIsolation() when the MySQL version supports it, 
instead of an instance variable.
     * Quote table names in DatabaseMetaData.getColumns(), 
getPrimaryKeys(), getIndexInfo(), getBestRowIdentifier()
     * Greatly reduce memory required for setBinaryStream() in 
     * Fixed ResultSet.isBeforeFirst() for empty result sets.
     * Added update options for foreign key metadata.
     * - Fixed Connection.getTransactionIsolation() not picking up 
isolation levels for servers older than 4.0.x.
     * Backport 4.1 protocol and authentication changes from Connector/J
