MySQL Cluster API Developer Guide
This is the MySQL Cluster API Developer Guide, which provides
information about developing applications using MySQL Cluster as
a data store. Application interfaces covered in this Guide
include the low-level C++-language
API for the MySQL
NDB storage engine, the C-language
API for communicating with and controlling
MySQL Cluster management servers, and the
MySQL Cluster Connector for Java,
which is a collection of Java APIs introduced in MySQL Cluster
NDB 7.1 for writing applications against MySQL Cluster,
including JDBC, JPA, and ClusterJ.
MySQL Cluster NDB 7.2 and later also provides support for the Memcache API; for more information, see Chapter 6, ndbmemcache—Memcache API for MySQL Cluster.
MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 and later also provides support for
