MySQL Cluster Connector for Java

Moderated by: Craig L Russell
Location: D136

While MySQL Cluster is perhaps best known as an open source transactional storage engine for MySQL Server, it is a fully functional database in its own right, with a rich query language and choice of access methods to data beyond SQL. The native access language is C++ which posed barriers to entry for many developers. This BOF introduces the recently announced MySQL Cluster for Java / API, also known as ClusterJ, which provides high performance Java access directly to the data stored in the cluster.

ClusterJ supports the POJO Domain Object Model of persistence, allowing mapping of Java domain objects directly to MySQL Cluster database tables.

Topics for discussion include: installation requirements for ClusterJ; creating the domain object model classes mapped to your tables; support for column types mapped to Java types; configuring the connection to MySQL Cluster; obtaining a session; transaction management including auto-transaction; life cycle management (insert, delete); updating data; and querying to find data.

No experience with MySQL Cluster is assumed, but experience with Java will be useful for attendees.
