Running Connector/Net 6.5 inside Medium-Trust Level
Employee +1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

As you probably know, there were some problems using our connector in medium-trust level scenarios. Most hosting services provide MySQL access.  Most of these hosting providers run their .NET web apps using medium trust.  Prior to 6.5, our connector required the hosting provider to either run the application in full trust or to enable broad privileges like SocketPermission globally.  Many hosting providers are unwilling to do that.  So fully enabling our provider to run in a partial trust scenario was a strongly requested feature. The request was a very simple task: enable Connector/Net to work correctly in a medium-trust level environment when the library is installed in the GAC.

The implementation consisted of including the necessary security imperative asserts so the CLR allows our code to perform the operations where it needs

Connector/Net is now enabled to work inside a Medium/Partial Trust security level. Just download the new 6.5 version to use with your .Net application and you should be able to see it working just fine.
Using MySqlClientPermission Class on Connector/Net 6.5 to restrict data access
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We have a new feature as part of the 6.5 release. There is a new class that you can use to restrict access to specific connection strings that you want to use in all the connections in applications that use MySQL databases.

The following example shows how you can use the MySQLClientPermission class to restrict access to a specific server name and a database, while allowing any value for the User Id and Password within the connection string:

MySqlClientPermission permission = new MySqlClientPermission(PermissionState.None);

permission.Add("server=localhost;database=test;", " user id=; password=;",

KeyRestrictionBehavior.AllowOnly);

permission.PermitOnly();

MySqlConnection myconn = new MySqlConnection();

myconn.ConnectionString =

Milliseconds value support on DateTime Columns
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since the release of the 5.6 Community MySQL Server there is support for the milliseconds value in Time, TimeStamp and DateTime types.  You can find more information on this new feature at (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/fractional-seconds.html).  Starting with version 6.5, Connector/Net fully supports milliseconds. This support does not affect compatibility with older versions of MySQL and it gives you the ability to use fractional seconds when combining Connector/Net 6.5 with MySQL Server 5.6 or later.  Let's see how we should use it.

Creating a DateTime column that include Milliseconds value.

You can do this either using Connector/Net or using any MySQL client with a valid connection to your database.

For this case we're going to

Reggie Burnett, Connector/NET
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Zach Urlocker (zachu_rss) mentioned a few blogs recently in an internal memo. I was listed. Whee :) So was Reggie Burnett, who is responsible for Connector/Net. I've been playing with C# recently, and I'd like to get familiar with Connector/Net (or C/Net). So I subscribed to his blog. I've added an rss feed to LiveJournal: reggie_mysql.

Reggie, I'll be reading up on it :)
