MySQL Connector/J 8.0 Developer Guide  /  What's New in Connector/J 8.0?

Pre-General Availability Draft: 2018-01-15

Chapter 3 What's New in Connector/J 8.0?

Note

Connector/J 8.0 was formerly known as Connector/J 6.0; see Changes in MySQL Connector/J 8.0.7 for an explanation of the version number change. This section describes differences between Connector/J 8.0 and Connector/J 5.1.

Here is a summary of major new features of Connector/J 8.0 (for details on the differences between the Connector/J 5.1 and 8.0 and for instructions on migrating, see Section 4.3.1, “Upgrading to MySQL Connector/J 8.0”):

  • It supports MySQL 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, and 8.0.

  • It supports the JDBC 4.2 specification.

  • It is a MySQL driver for the Java 8 platform. For Java 7 or earlier, use Connector/J 5.1 instead.

  • It supports the new X DevAPI, through which native support by MySQL 5.7 and 8.0 for JSON, NoSQL, document collection, and other features are provided to Java applications. See Using MySQL as a Document Store, the X DevAPI User Guide, and MySQL Connector/J X DevAPI Reference for details .
