Changes in MySQL Connector/J 1.1 (02 September 1998)

  • Got rid of "ugly hack" in MysqlIO.nextRow(). Rather than catch an exception, Buffer.isLastDataPacket() was fixed.

  • Connection.getCatalog() and Connection.setCatalog() should work now.

  • Statement.setMaxRows() works, as well as setting by property maxRows. Statement.setMaxRows() overrides maxRows set using properties or url parameters.

  • Automatic re-connection is available. Because it has to "ping" the database before each query, it is turned off by default. To use it, pass in "autoReconnect=true" in the connection URL. You may also change the number of reconnect tries, and the initial timeout value using "maxReconnects=n" (default 3) and "initialTimeout=n" (seconds, default 2) parameters. The timeout is an exponential backoff type of timeout; for example, if you have initial timeout of 2 seconds, and maxReconnects of 3, then the driver will timeout 2 seconds, 4 seconds, then 16 seconds between each re-connection attempt.
