MySQL for Windows Store apps

Windows 8 has ushered in the era of Windows Store apps and touch in a Windows OS.  Windows Store apps can be written in a multitude of languages including all .NET languages, Javascript, HTML, and C/C++.  We want to make it easy to write Windows Store apps that connect to the MySQL database.  To that end, we have included Windows Store compatibility in our recent Connector/Net 6.7 release.

 This is done by providing a separate assembly that exposes some of the functionality of the standard Connector/Net provider.   Some of the areas of functionality that is limited or missing as compared to stock Connector/Net are:

  • SSL connections or Windows authentication is not supported
  • MySQLDataAdapter objects are not supported. All access should be through MySQLCommand and MySQLDataReader.
  • Only TCP connections are supported
  • Tracing is not supported
  • GetSchema methods return a different type of object instead of DataTable
  • Some of the constructors have been removed or modified.

You can read more about this at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/connector-net-rt.html.

We think that Windows Store apps are a key component of the Windows story going forward and we will continue to improve and support development of Windows Store application.  To get started developing apps, please download Connector/Net 6.7 from here and be sure and catch a followup tutorial blog from one of our lead developers Roberto Garcia.
