The MySQL Connector/C++ provides a C++ API for connecting client applications to the MySQL Server. The MySQL Connector/C++ mimics the JDBC 3.0 API. JDBC is a commonly known and well designed API. The Connector/C++ preview implements about 75% of the methods of the following classes of the JDBC 3.0 API:

  • Connection
  • DatabaseMetaData
  • Driver
  • PreparedStatement
  • ResultSet
  • ResultSetMetaData
  • Savepoint
  • Statement

Using MySQL Connector/C++ instead of the MySQL C API (MySQL Client Library) offers the following advantages for C++ users:

  • Convenience of pure C++ - no C function calls
  • Support of a well designed API - JDBC 3.0
  • Support of a commonly known and well documented API - JDBC 3.0
  • Support of the object oriented programming paradigm
  • Shorter development times
