Developing Database Applications Using MySQL Connector/C++
By Jennifer Glore on Apr 15, 2009
MySQL Connector/C++ is a MySQL database connector for C++ that ISVs and other application developers who have C++ applications can use to connect, insert, and retrieve data from a MySQL database. The MySQL Connector/C++ mimics the JDBC 3.0 API. The Connector/C++ preview implements about 75% of the methods of the JDBC 3.0 API. MySQL Connector/C++ can be downloaded from here under the Connector section. Note that it is a beta release.
Recently, Giri Mandalika, one of our engineers within ISV Engineering, wrote an article on how to develop database application using MySQL Connector/C++. It also dives into how to install MySQL Connector/C++ from Source. This article will be extremely useful for C++ application developers that want to connect to a MySQL database.
