2.32 Changes in MySQL Connector/J 5.1.0 (2007-04-11)

This is the first public alpha release of the current Connector/J 5.1 development branch, providing an insight to upcoming features. Although some of these are still under development, this release includes the following new features and changes (in comparison to the current Connector/J 5.0 production release):

Important change: Due to a number of issues with the use of server-side prepared statements, Connector/J 5.0.5 has disabled their use by default. The disabling of server-side prepared statements does not affect the operation of the connector in any way.

To enable server-side prepared statements you must add the following configuration property to your connector string:

useServerPrepStmts=true

The default value of this property is false (that is, Connector/J does not use server-side prepared statements).

Note

The disabling of server-side prepared statements does not affect the operation of the connector. However, if you use the useTimezone=true connection option and use client-side prepared statements (instead of server-side prepared statements) you should also set useSSPSCompatibleTimezoneShift=true.
