4.3.1.6 Other Changes

Here are other changes with Connector/J 8.0:

  • Removed ReplicationDriver. Instead of using a separate driver, you can now obtain a connection for a replication setup just by using the jdbc:mysql:replication:// scheme.

  • See Chapter 4, Connector/J Installation for third-party libraries required for Connector/J 8.0 to work.

  • MySQLIntegrityConstraintViolationException has been removed; catch java.sql.SQLIntegrityConstraintViolationException instead.

  • Connector/J 8.0 always performs time offset adjustments on date-time values, and the adjustments require one of the following to be true:

    • The MySQL server is configured with a canonical time zone that is recognizeble by Java (for example, Europe/Paris, Etc/GMT-5, UTC, etc.)

    • The server's time zone is overridden by setting the Connector/J connection property serverTimezone (for example, serverTimezone=Europe/Paris).
