This section provides code examples illustrating how to accomplish some basic tasks using the NDB API.
All of these examples can be compiled and run as provided, and produce sample output to demonstrate their effects.
For an NDB API program to connect to the cluster, the cluster
configuration file must have at least one
section that is not assigned to an SQL node and that can be
accessed from the host where the NDB API application runs. You can
also use an unassigned
[mysqld] section for
this purpose, although we recommend that you use [mysqld] sections
for SQL nodes and
[api] sections for NDB client
programs. See MySQL Cluster Configuration Files, and
especially Defining SQL and Other API Nodes in a MySQL Cluster, for
