2.2.1 Connecting to a Single MySQL Server

In this example a connection to a local MySQL Server running X Plugin on the default TCP/IP port 33060 is established using the MySQL user account "user" with its password. As no other parameters are set, default values are used. You can use either a data dictionary or a URI type string, see Connecting using a URI String.

MySQL Shell JavaScript Code

// Passing the parameters in the { param: value } format
var dictSession = mysqlx.getSession( {
        host: 'localhost', 'port': 33060,
        user: 'mike', password: 'password' } )

var db1 = dictSession.getSchema('test')

// Passing the parameters in the URL format
var uriSession = mysqlx.getSession('mike:password@localhost:33060')

var db2 = uriSession.getSchema('test')

MySQL Shell Python Code

# Passing the parameters in the { param: value } format
dictSession = mysqlx.get_session( {
        'host': 'localhost', 'port': 33060,
        'user': 'mike', 'password': 'password' } )

db1 = dictSession.get_schema('test')

# Passing the parameters in the URL format
uriSession = mysqlx.get_session('mike:password@localhost:33060')

db2 = uriSession.get_schema('test')

The following example shows how to connect to a single MySQL Server by providing a TCP/IP address localhost and the same user account as before. You are prompted to enter the username and password in this case.

MySQL Shell JavaScript Code

// Passing the parameters in the { param: value } format
// Query the user for the account information
print("Please enter the database user information.");
var usr = shell.prompt("Username: ", {defaultValue: "mike"});
var pwd = shell.prompt("Password: ", {type: "password"});

// Connect to MySQL Server on a network machine
mySession = mysqlx.getSession( {
        host: 'localhost', 'port': 33060,
        user: usr, password: pwd} );

myDb = mySession.getSchema('test');

MySQL Shell Python Code

# Passing the parameters in the { param: value } format
# Query the user for the account information
print "Please enter the database user information."
usr = shell.prompt("Username: ", {'defaultValue': "mike"})
pwd = shell.prompt("Password: ", {'type': "password"})

# Connect to MySQL Server on a network machine
mySession = mysqlx.get_session( {
        'host': 'localhost', 'port': 33060,
        'user': usr, 'password': pwd} )

myDb = mySession.get_schema('test')

C# Code

// Query the user for the user information
Console.WriteLine("Please enter the database user information.");
Console.Write("Username: ");
var usr = Console.ReadLine();
Console.Write("Password: ");
var pwd = Console.ReadLine();
         
// Connect to server on localhost using a connection URL
var mySession = MySQLX.GetSession(string.Format("mysqlx://localhost:33060/test?user={0}&password={1}", usr, pwd));

var myDb = mySession.GetSchema("test");

Python Code

# Passing the parameters in the { param: value } format
dict_session = mysqlx.get_session({
    'host': 'localhost', 'port': 33060,
    'user': 'user', 'password': 'password'
})

my_schema_1 = dict_session.get_schema('test')

# Passing the parameters in the URL format
uri_session = mysqlx.get_session('user:password@localhost:33060')

my_schema_2 = uri_session.get_schema('test')

Java Code

import com.mysql.cj.xdevapi.*;

// Connect to server on localhost using a connection URL
Session mySession = new SessionFactory().getSession("mysqlx://localhost:33060/test?user=user&password=password");

Schema myDb = mySession.getSchema("test");

C++ Code

// This code sample assumes that we have function prompt() defined somewhere.

string usr = prompt("Username:");
string pwd = prompt("Password:");

// Connect to MySQL Server on a network machine
Session mySession(SessionOption::HOST, "localhost",
                  SessionOption::PORT, 33060,
                  SessionOption::USER, usr,
                  SessionOption::PWD, pwd);

// An alternative way of defining session settings.

SessionSettings settings(SessionOption::HOST,"localhost",
                         SessionOption::PORT, 33060);

settings.set(SessionOption::USER, usr);
settings.set(SessionOption::PWD, pwd);

Session mySession(settings);

Schema myDb= mySession.getSchema("test");
