Functionality Added or Changed
getTypeInfo() with information about
all types supported by MySQL and the
make package_source now packs with bzip2.
Test cases were added in the first unit testing framework.
MySQL versions before 5.1.16 using
Added new tests in
tests are mostly about code coverage. Most of the actual
functionality of the driver is tested by the tests found in
instructions for writing bug and regression tests.
Major performance improvements due to new buffered
setting variables like
Experimental support for STLPort. This feature may be removed
again at any time later without prior warning! Type
-L for configuration
which has implicit constructors. Used in
mysql_metadata.cpp to create result sets
with native data instead of always string (varchar).
New data types added to the list returned by
DOUBLE UNSIGNED. Those
tests may not be in the JDBC specification. However, due to the
change you should be able to look up every type and type name
returned by, for example,
resultset.h includes typdefs for Windows to
be able to use
sql::Blob was removed in favor of
IOStream library is very powerful, similar to
PHP's streams. It makes no sense to reinvent the wheel. For
example, you can pass a
setBlob() if the data is in memory,
or just open a file
std::fstream and let it
stream to the DB, or write its own stream. This is also true for
getBlob() where you can just copy data (if a
buffered result set), or stream data (if implemented).
Changed the implementation of
MySQL_ConstructedResultSet to use the more
efficient O(1) access method. This should improve the speed with
which the metadata result sets are used. Also, there is less
copying during the construction of the result set, which means
that all result sets returned from the metadata functions will
Added properties enabled methods for connecting, which add many
connect options. This uses a dictionary (map) of key value
pairs. Methods added are
Improved the implementation for
generated from views are read only. These generated values don't
set, while all normal columns do have.
cppconn/datatype.h has changed and is now
used again. Reimplemented the type subsystem to be more usable -
more types for binary and nonbinary strings.
Corrected handling of unsigned server types. Now returning correct values.
Bug fixed in
Returned string that had real data but the length was random.
Now, the string is initialized with the correct length and thus
is binary safe.
Fixed handling of numeric columns in
ResultSetMetaData::isCaseSensitive to return
