Subject:MySQL Connector/J 5.1.43 has been released
View as plain text  
Dear MySQL Users,

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.43, a maintenance release of the production 5.1
branch has been released. Connector/J is the Type-IV pure-Java JDBC
driver for MySQL.

MySQL Connector Java is available in source and binary form from the
Connector/J download pages at
and mirror sites as well as Maven-2 repositories.

MySQL Connector Java (Commercial) is already available for download on the
My Oracle Support (MOS) website. This release will be available on eDelivery
(OSDC) in next month's upload cycle.

As always, we recommend that you check the "CHANGES" file in the
download archive to be aware of changes in behavior that might affect
your application.

MySQL Connector/J 5.1.43 includes the following general bug fixes and
improvements, also available in more detail on

Changes in MySQL Connector/J 5.1.43 (2017-07-21)

    Version 5.1.43 is a maintenance release of the production 5.1
    branch. It is suitable for use with MySQL Server versions
    5.5, 5.6, and 5.7. It supports the Java Database Connectivity
    (JDBC) 4.2 API.

    Functionality Added or Changed

      * Update the time zone mappings using the latest IANA and
        CLDR time zone databases. (Bug #25946965)

      * A new option for the loadBalancingStrategy connection
        property called serverAffinity has been added. The
        servers listed in the new connection property
        serverAffinityOrder (which should be a subset of the
        servers in the host list of the connection URL) are
        contacted in the order they are listed until a server is
        available or until the list of servers is exhausted, at
        which point a random load-balancing strategy is used with
        the hosts not listed by serverAffinityOrder. See
        descriptions for loadBalancingStrategy and
        serverAffinityOrder in Driver/Datasource Class Names, URL
        Syntax and Configuration Properties for Connector/J


        for details. (Bug #20182108)

    Bugs Fixed

      * Secure JDBC connections did not fall back to the default
        truststore when a custom one was not provided. (Bug

      * Connector/J failed a number of regression tests in the
        testsuite related to geographic information system (GIS)
        functions because of changes to GIS support by the MySQL
        server. The fix corrects the tests. (Bug #26239946, Bug

      * Attempts to connect to a server started with collation
        utf8mb4_de_pb_0900_ai_ci resulted in null pointer
        exceptions. (Bug #26090721)

      * In com/mysql/jdbc/, the
        arguments resultSetType and resultSetConcurrency for a
        call of Connection.preparedStatement() were swapped. (Bug
        #25874048, Bug #85885)

      * A NullPointerException was returned when getDate(),
        getTime(), or getTimestamp() was called with a null
        Calendar. This fix makes Connector/J throw an
        SQLException in the case. (Bug #25650305)

      * Some JDBC proxied objects were missing the proper
        handling of the equals() methods, thus even comparison of
        one of these proxied objects to its own self with
        equals() yielded false. This patch introduces proper
        handling for the equals() method in all the relevant
        proxies. (Bug #21931572, Bug #78313)

      * A server-side prepared statement was not closed when the
        same statement was being prepared again while the
        original statement was being cached. This was caused by
        the silent replacement of the cache entry of the old
        statement by the new. When this happened repeatedly, it
        caused eventually the complaint that
        max_prepared_stmt_count was exceeded. This fix makes sure
        that when a cache entry for a statement replaces an older
        one, the older statement is immediately closed. (Bug
        #20066806, Bug #74932)
