MySQL Connector/Python 2.2.3 m4 Development Release has been released

MySQL Connector/Python 2.2.3 M4 is the fourth development release of the MySQL Connector Python 2.2 series. This series adds support for the new X DevAPI. The X DevAPI enables application developers to write code that combines the strengths of the relational and document models using a modern, NoSQL-like syntax that does not assume previous experience writing traditional SQL.

To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/. For more information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in MySQL Connector/Python, and its usage, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-python.

Please note that the X DevAPI requires MySQL Server version 5.7.12 or higher with the X Plugin enabled. For general documentation about how to get started using MySQL as a document store, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/document-store.html.

Changes in MySQL Connector/Python 2.2.3 (2017-03-22, Milestone 3)

Functionality Added or Changed

* Connector/Python now supports IPv6 target hosts in X DevAPI connection strings.

Bugs Fixed

* The defined_as(statement) method used to create views did not permit a SelectStatement object argument (generated by Table.select()). (Bug #25614860)

* The SelectStatement object returned by Table.select() failed to provide the order_by() method. (Bug #25519251)

* The pure Python implemention of Protobuf has been replaced by a C++ extension. This enables Connector/Python to support Python 2 and 3 as well as Protobuf 2 and 3. (Bug #25209469)

* import mysqlx caused an error with Python 2.6 on Solaris and EL6 platforms. (Bug #24578507)

* The error message for get_session() failure was incorrect. (Bug #23636962)

* The Collection.find() method failed to work with the LIKE operator or aggregate functions. The Collection.find() method failed to work with several
operators. Support was added for these operators:

+ Nullary Operators: *

+ Unary Operators: !, NOT, +, -, ~

+ Binary Operators: AND, &&, OR, ||, XOR, <>, ^, IS NOT, NOT REGEXP, NOT LIKE, CAST, NOT IN

+ Ternary Operators: NOT BETWEEN

In addition, arrow notation to access JSON columns is now functional (for example, schema.table.column->’$.document field’). (Bug #23567724, Bug #23568207, Bug #25436568, Bug #84585)

MySQL Connector/C++ 2.0.4 m2 has been released

MySQL Connector/C++ 2.0.4 is the next development milestone of the MySQL

Connector/C++ 2.0 series. Connector/C++ 2.0 can be used to access MySQL
implementing Document Store or in a traditional way, using SQL queries. It
allows writing both C++ applications using X DevAPI or plain C applications
using XAPI.

To learn more about how to write applications using X DevAPI, see X
DevAPI User Guide (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/) and X
DevAPI reference at
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-cpp/devapi_ref.html. For more
information about using plain C XAPI see XAPI reference at
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-cpp/xapi_ref.html. For generic
information on using Connector/C++ 2.0, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-cpp/.

Note

Connector/C++ 2.0 requires MySQL Server version 5.7.12 or higher
with X Plugin enabled. For general documentation about how to get
started using MySQL as a document store, see Using MySQL as a Document
Store (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/document-store.html).

To download MySQL Connector/C++ 2.0.4, see the “Development Releases”
tab at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/cpp/

Changes in MySQL Connector/C++ 2.0.4 (2017-03-21, Development
Milestone)

Functionality Added or Changed

  • Support was added for secure sessions over TLS
    connections. A secure session can be requested either via
    the ssl-enable and ssl-ca options of a connection string,
    or using explicit session creation options. For X DevAPI
    session settings, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-cpp/classmysqlx_1_1_session_settings.html.
    For XAPI session settings, see
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-cpp/group__xapi.html
    (check the documentation for enum mysqlx_opt_type_t).
  • The format of document ID values generated when adding
    documents to a collation has changed. It is still a
    string of 32 hexadecimal digits based on UUID, but the
    order of digits was changed to match the requirement of a
    stable ID prefix.
  • The X DevAPI Schema object now supports methods for view
    manipulation: createView(), alterView(), and dropView().
    XAPI now contains functions that implement similar
    functionality: mysqlx_view_create(),
    mysqlx_view_replace(), mysqlx_view_modify(), and
    (implemented previously) mysqlx_view_drop().
    As with other XAPI operations, there are functions that
    create a statement handle without executing it:
    mysqlx_view_create_new(), mysqlx_view_replace_new(), and
    mysqlx_view_modify_new().
    These XAPI functions modify view DDL statements before
    execution: mysqlx_set_view_algorithm(),
    mysqlx_set_view_security(),
    mysqlx_set_view_check_option(),
    mysqlx_set_view_definer(), and mysqlx_set_view_columns().
  • Connector/C++ now supports IPv6 target hosts in
    connection strings and when creating sessions using other
    methods.

Bugs Fixed

  • When rList is an empty list, table.insert().rows(rList)
    caused a segmentation fault. (Bug #25515964)

MySQL Connector/NET 7.0.7 m6 development has been released

MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.7 is the fourth development release that expands cross-platform support to Linux and OS X when using Microsoft’s .NET Core framework. Now,
.NET developers can use the X DevAPI with .NET Core and Entity Framework Core
(EF Core) 1.0 to create server applications that run on Windows, Linux and OS X.
We are very excited about this change and really look forward to your feedback on it!

MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.7 is also the sixth development release of MySQL Connector/Net to add support for the new X DevAPI. The X DevAPI enables
application developers to write code that combines the strengths of the
relational and document models using a modern, NoSQL-like syntax that
does not assume previous experience writing traditional SQL.

To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/index.html. For more
information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in Connector/Net, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-net.

Note

The X DevAPI requires at least MySQL Server version 5.7.12 or higher with
the X Plugin enabled. For general documentation about how to get started
using MySQL as a document store, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/document-store.html.

To download MySQL Connector/Net 7.0.7 M6, see the “Development
Releases” tab at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/

Functionality Added or Changed

  • X DevAPI: Added support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses. Host names can now resolve as IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.
  • X DevAPI: Connection string syntax is now identical to the URI scheme, which provides a cross-product syntax for defining the connection data to establish a session.
  • X DevAPI: Added new methods to the Schema class to create, alter, and drop views. Usage notes include:
    • Views created with the Schema.CreateView().DefinedAs() method chain are
      supported for use with the table Select method, but are not supported with the collection Find method.
    • A collection view created in the database by some mechanism other than the CreateView method is not defined as a view by Table.IsView.
    • Query objects assigned to a view with the CreateView method are static, even when the underlying query changes.

Changes in MySQL Connector/J 6.0.6 (2017-03-10, Milestone 5)

Version 6.0.6 Milestone is the fifth development release of
the 6.0 branch of MySQL Connector/J, providing an insight
into upcoming features. It is suitable for use with MySQL
Server versions 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7. It supports the Java
Database Connectivity (JDBC) 4.2 API.

* Functionality Added or Changed

* Bugs Fixed

Functionality Added or Changed

* X DevAPI: The getPluginVersion() method has been removed
from Connector/J, as it is no longer supported by the X
Protocol. (Bug #25056803)

* IPv6 host addresses are now supported for connections
using the X Protocol.

* X DevAPI: The following new connection options have been
added for SSL/TLS configuration:

+ xdevapi.ssl-enable

+ xdevapi.ssl-truststore

+ xdevapi.ssl-verify-server-certificate
See Configuration Properties

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-j/6.0/en/connector-j-reference-configuration-properties.html

for details.

* Connector/J now supports the new character set collations
implemented in MySQL Server 8.0. See Unicode Character
Sets
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/charset-unicode-sets.html
for details.

* X DevAPI: DDL for views are now supported by the new
methods createView(), dropView(), and alterView().
However, the functions do not support partitioning in an
InnoDB cluster or sharding.

* X DevAPI: The Connector/J X Dev API has been reorganized:

+ All interfaces for public usage have been moved to
the com.mysql.cj.api.xdevapi package, and their
implementation classes to com.mysql.cj.xdevapi.

+ All Connector/J internal interfaces have been moved
to the com.mysql.cj.api.x.core and
com.mysql.cj.api.x.io packages, and their
implementation classes to com.mysql.cj.x.core and
com.mysql.cj.x.io.

+ Protobuf generated classes have been moved to the
com.mysql.cj.x.protobuf package.

+ The MysqlxSessionFactory has been renamed
XSessionFactory.

Bugs Fixed

* When Connector/J was reading a TIMESTAMP value into an
instance of a JSR-310 data type, the reading was wrong
when the time did not exist in the local time zone of the
JVM due to a time change for Daylight Saving Time. It was
because Connector/J created first a java.sql.Timestamp
instance (which used the JVM’s time zone) for the value
and then converted it to, for example,
java.time.LocalDateTime. With this fix, a JSR-310 object
is created directly to avoid the conversion. (Bug
#24658016, Bug #82964)

* Query executions using prepared statements failed with
the error “Unknown ProtocolEntity class null” when the
connection property useCursorFetch was set to true. (Bug
#24527173)

* When server-side prepared statements were used, updates
to result sets failed in errors. (Bug #24525461)

* The getString() method returned wrong millisecond values
for the TIMESTAMP data type. (Bug #24512766, Bug #82707)

* Updates to a document object of the Dbdoc type failed
when the document contained an array. (Bug #24471057)

* The method isNumberSigned() returned true for columns of
type VARCHAR, which was wrong as it should return false
for any non-numeric columns, according to the JDBC
Specification. The behavior has now been corrected. (Bug
#24350526)

* An IllegalArgumentException was thrown when lenient was
false for a Calendar object and the hours, minutes, and
seconds explicitly set via the Calendar constructor did
not match the values resulted from the timezone
conversion of the Calendar object’s date value. (Bug
#23702040, Bug #82005)

* X DevAPI: The getLastDocumentIds() method only reported
document IDs specified by users, but not those generated
by Connector/J. With this fix, all IDs are now reported.
(Bug #23519211)

* A connection failed with IllegalStateException:
TrustManagerFactoryImpl is not initialized after
Connector/J set javax.net.ssl.trustStore. (Bug #23510894)

* A NullPointerException was thrown when a NULL object of
any of the classes defined in the java.time package was
retried by the ResultSet.getObject() method. (Bug
#23188159, Bug #81202)

* The getType() method returned errors on columns of YEAR
and DATETIME data types. (Bug #22931277)
