Changes in MySQL Connector/J 8.0.18 (2019-10-14, General

Bugs Fixed

     * A minor code improvement has been put into
       DatabaseMetaDataUsingInfoSchema.getColumns(). (Bug #29898567,
       Bug #95741)

     * For a replication setup, when the connection property
       loadBalanceAutoCommitStatementThreshold was set to any values
       other than 0, load-balancing server switching failed. It was
       because in this case, LoadBalancedAutoCommitInterceptor did not
       have the required access to the parent connection proxy that
       had established the connection, and this fix enables such access.
       (Bug #25223123, Bug #84098)

     * An attempt to retrieve multiple result sets returned by
       asynchronous executions of stored procedures resulted in an
       ExecutionException. With this fix, Connector/J now works properly
       when asynchronous executions return multiple result sets.
       (Bug #23721537)

Enjoy and thanks for the support!
