Changes in MySQL Connector/J 6.0.2 (2016-04-11, Milestone 1)

    Version 6.0.2 Milestone 1 is the first development release of the
    6.0 branch of MySQL Connector/J.

    The major features of Connector/J 6.0 include:

      * Supports MySQL 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7.

      * Supports the JDBC 4.2 specification.

      * Supports the Java 8 platform (use Connector/J 5.1 for
        Java 7 or earlier).

      * Supports the new X DevAPI. The X DevAPI enables
        application developers to write code that combines the
        strengths of the relational and document models using a
        modern, NoSQL-like syntax that does not assume previous
        experience writing traditional SQL. To learn more about
        how to write applications using the X DevAPI see the X
        DevAPI User's Guide
        For more information about how the X DevAPI is
        implemented in Connector/J, MySQL Connector/J X DevAPI
        Reference (
        Please note that the X DevAPI requires at least MySQL
        Server version 5.7.12 or higher with the X Plugin
        enabled. For general documentation about how to get started
        using MySQL as a Document Store, see

    For other significant changes from Connector/J 5.1 to 6.0,
    see Changes in Connection Properties

    and Changes in the Connector/J API
    Connector/J 6.0.2 includes all the bug fixes that have been
    incorporated into Connector/J 5.1.38, plus the fixes
    described below.

    Bugs Fixed

      * FabricMySQLDataSource.getConnection() threw a null pointer
        exception when a master failover took place. (Bug

      * The OSGi manifest file in the Connector/J JAR file did not
        expose the MySQL Fabric packages, so the Fabric-related
        classes could not be resolved even though they were
        present in the JAR file. (Bug #22385172)
