MySQL Shell User Guide

Abstract

This is the MySQL Shell User Guide extract from the MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual.

MySQL Shell enables you to prototype code using the X DevAPI to communicate with a MySQL Server running the X Plugin. The X Plugin is a new MySQL Server feature available with MySQL Server 5.7.12 and higher.

MySQL Shell is an advanced command-line client and code editor for the MySQL Server. In addition to SQL, MySQL Shell also offers scripting capabilities for JavaScript and Python. When MySQL Shell is connected to the MySQL Server through the X Protocol, the X DevAPI can be used to work with both relational and document data.

For help with using MySQL, please visit either the MySQL Forums or MySQL Mailing Lists, where you can discuss your issues with other MySQL users.
