MySQL mini-FAQ

I've spent some time reading about MySQL and the JDBC driver, and here are a few long-standing questions that I found the answer to:

  1. What is the difference between and com.mysql.jdbc.Driver?

    - They are the same, the former extends the latter with nothing but a no-args constructor for backwards compatability.

  2. What is the difference between MySQL Connector/J 3.1.x and 5.0.x?

    - The 5.0.x version has support for XA (distributed) transactions.

  3. Where can I find a reference guide for configuring the JDBC driver?

    - Here.
