Implementing a MySQL Client Library

Konstantin Osipov, Software Developer, MySQL AB

Track: Architecture and Technology
Date: Tuesday, April 24
Time: 1:40pm - 2:25pm
Location: Ballroom D

This session is about three things:

  • Client library design.
  • MySQL uses a layered design of its communication layer. VIO library abstracts the communication media, which can vary from shared memory to SSL over TCP/IP. NET layer establishes session flow control and a standard message packet format. Finally, the server and all its clients use the NET to communicate with database entities, such as connection, command, statement, cursor, and result set.

  • Communication nuts and bolts.
  • To implement MySQL you not only need to know how to send a query to the server, but also how to encode the result. This part is about actual transfer format of integers, strings, columns, and records.

  • Legal information.
  • If you're not from Russia and actually need to know the licensing legitimate use information, this session attempts to provide it.
