32-bit ODBC Driver 8.0 for Windows is back!

The previous release of MySQL Connector 8.0.11 caused confusion for many users because its lack of support for Windows 32-bit platform, which is still very popular.

The main reason for it was the change in the MySQL Server 8.0 and MySQL client 8.0 library design, which regarded the Windows 32-bit platform as obsolete. Unfortunately, it had a far reaching adverse impact on the family of MySQL Connectors based on libmysqlclient including MySQL Connector/ODBC.

We listened to the voice of the community and did our best to bring back the 32-bit ODBC Driver for Windows to allow using it in ASP, VB, 32-bit MS Office applications etc.

Now we are happy to announce the return of the fully featured 32-bit version of ODBC Driver 8.0 for Windows with the full support for MySQL Server 8.0. The community version of the driver will soon be available for public at the following address:

What is new in Connector/ODBC 8.0

General information about MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0:

MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0 is a successor of the Connector/ODBC 5.3 line.
The Connector/ODBC driver 8.0 becomes available starting from the version 8.0.11.

Where is 8.0.10? The family of MySQL products is growing and with so many products and different versions it is easy to get confused about functionality and product compatibility. Therefore, we decided to unify the versioning and synchronize the version numbers across all MySQL products. The current GA version of MySQL Server is 8.0.11 and the family of MySQL Connectors including Connector/ODBC has been aligned with the new versioning model and became 8.0.11 too. This will ensure that Connector/ODBC 8.0.11 can work with MySQL Server 8.0.11.

Among bug fixes and internal improvements the Connector/ODBC 8.0.11 received the support for a new authentication methods introduced in MySQL Server 8.0. These new …

Accessing Oracle tables via MariaDB CONNECT engine and ODBC

In my previous working environment it was typical to consider MariaDB Server as just a set of "random" storage engines mixed together, sometimes for unclear reasons and with questionable extra value. But even at that times I was already impressed by some features of one of the engines supported only by MariaDB, CONNECT. PIVOT table type specifically was of interest in a couple of customer cases I had to work on, but I quickly found out that the engine does not work with Oracle's MySQL or Percona Server, and thus had to forget about it for some time.

Recently while working in MariaDB I've got several more chances to deal with some new CONNECT use cases (and some related problems, that ended up mostly minor or caused by ignorance). This engine …

Separate docs for MySQL Connectors

The MySQL documentation section has always had this Topic Guides page containing links to the docs for the various MySQL Connectors -- the official database drivers for various languages and programming technologies. That is the most convenient way to get the information for each Connector in PDF form, rather than downloading the entire Ref Man PDF. For HTML, it was more of a shortcut, because

Cisco Access Registrar ODBC Remote Server KeepAliveTimerInterval

In a test lab, we ran into a situation where the connection between our Cisco Access Registrar (AAA) server and MySQL server was timing out. This forced the server to reconnect and resulted in the following errors: name/radius/1 Error Server 0 ODBC client (DataSource 'my_odbc', Connection 8): SQLExecute failed: SQLState:08S01 NativeError:2006 ErrorText:[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.21-log] MySQL […]

Unexplained function output

I was asked today to confirm the operation of INET_ATON() and INET_NTOA() functions for converting IP4 strings to numeric representations. My tests on the machine I was just connected to at the very instant reported the following results.

mysql> SELECT VERSION();
+-----------------+
| VERSION()       |
+-----------------+
| 5.1.31-1ubuntu2 |
+-----------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT INET_ATON('74.165.97.204') AS ipn;
+------------+
| ipn        |
+------------+
| 1252352460 |
+------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> SELECT INET_NTOA(1252352460) as ipa;
+---------------+
| ipa           |
+---------------+
| 74.165.97.204 |
+---------------+
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

The results on the client via ODBC using MySQL 5.0.45 was?

ipn
1252352460

ipa
37342E3136352E39372E323034

What is causing this? It was immediately suspicious the pattern of 2E (the only letter), which translates from Hex to decimal …

Dusting off code: FederatedX

I have been meaning to, for months, get working on the FederatedX storage engine. There are a lot of great features it has -- such as better support for transactions as well as some architectural changes, thanks to the work of Antony Curtis. It now is designed so that the connection is abstracted into a federated_io_ class. This allows you to be able to subclass different connection schemes/drivers. For instance, I have the code for Federated ODBC that I need to take the code from and port to a federated_io_odbc class.

FederatedX has been pulled into an older MariaDB repository (thanks Antony!) that I need to merge with the latest, as well as figure out how to get the test suite to load the plugable storage engine. I've tried to add 'INSTALL PLUGIN federated SONAME 'ha_federatedx.so'' to the test, but the server expects ha_federated.so to be in a particular file location. That needs to be solved. I looked at PBXT's test suite but …
