Developing Java applications for MySQL Cluster can be as simple as using JDBC to connect to a standard MySQL server. This is the simplest strategy, but performance enhancements and additional features are available when writing directly to the native NDB API. This session aims to give an introduction to using the NDB API with Java (NDB/J) and will include discussion on how to handle common data access scenarios. Understanding how to translate existing SQL queries and the logic behind the needed operations will be described in detail. Features unique to NDB API programs will also be covered including asynchronous transactions, atomic increment and piecewise blob handling.

Monty Taylor is a Senior Consultant for MySQL. Don’t get excited, he’s not ‘that’ Monty. Monty specializes in HA solutions both with and without MySQL Cluster. He’s also the author of the NDB/Connectors for using non-C++ languages with the NDB API. When he’s not doing that, he’s an avid Python Hacker and is one of the most annoying advocates of Debian and Ubuntu you’re likely to meet. Oddly enough, he also like C# programming. (Go figure)
