MySQL Releases New Driver With Built In ColdFusion Specific Optimizations

MySQL has released a beta of a new version of their Java driver. As per this post, MySQL Connector/J 5.1.2 is a Type-IV pure-Java JDBC driver that is suitable for use with any MySQL version including MySQL-4.1, MySQL-5.0,
MySQL-5.1 beta or the MySQL-6.0 Falcon alpha release. And this new driver contains code that automatically detects ColdFusion and then adjusts settings to optimize performance for ColdFusion use. Thank to Tom Jordahl for bringing this one to my attention.

    Is this driver going to be included in 8?

    Great News,
    Does this work with any version of CF or just 8?

    The mySQL notes say they tested with version 7.

    How do you install this driver with CF 8?

    If that is the case, this should really be included with the product. That is too cool.

    I highly doubt that we’ll include this in CF8. A) CF8 is locked and final, too late to make any changes now. B) We have another MySQL driver that we include, not this one, and the one we shipped we’ve tested thoroughly with CF. C) CF8 has been fine-tuned to not call those expensive MySQL APIs already.
