Bugs fixed in this release

MariaDB Java Client 1.1.2 is a bug fix release. Some of the bugs fixed include the following:

  • PreparedStatement.getMetaData() will now return correct ResultSet metadata, also prior to statement execution. In this case, to retrieve metadata, statement will be prepared on the server side. (CONJ-21)
  • Performance enhancement : Connection.getAutoCommit() will not more issue not issue “select @@autocommit” query anymore. This information is also available in on status flags sent with OK/EOF protocol packets. Also, Connection.setAutoCommit() will be a no-op, if autocommit status is already the same as desired one (CONJ-30)
  • Fixed several issues with CLOB datatype and ResultSet.setCharacterStream() -non-ASCII character could get lost after setCharacterStream(). CLOB was errneously sent to server as binary (using _BINARY introducer). (CONJ-31)
  • CHAR BINARY and VARCHAR BINARY were errnously handled as binary type. They are now correctly treated as CHAR/VARCHAR with binary collation. (CONJ-28)
  • Blob.getBinaryStream() could return blob with incorrect size (CONJ-31)
  • Fix server version string for MariaDB Server 10.0.2 (CONJ-32)

This guest post from Jelastic (originally published here) describes how to set up MariaDB master-slave replication using their Jelastic PaaS (Platform as a Service).
