MySQL Connector/OOo to be integrated into main trunk

frank.schoenheit
Hi,

MySQL Connector/OOo [1], the database driver for OpenOffice.org for
connecting to a MySQL server without JDBC/ODBC, is going to be
integrated into the main trunk. (It previously had been released from a
CWS only.)

This happens in CWS mysqlconnector, probably going to "ready for QA" in
the next few days.

The driver compiles on the usual Sun-provided platforms, if you
need/have patches for making the CWS compile on your favorite platform,
you're welcome to contribute them to the CWS.

If you maintain an OpenOffice.org flavor for a Linux distribution, you
might be interested in knowing that configure learned the switches
"--enable-mysql-connector", "--with-system-mysql",
"--with-system-mysqlcppconn", "--with-libmysql-path", to customize
building the connector and its pre-requisites to your needs.

Ciao
Frank

But note you need the visibility changes from that cws' patch for
mysqlcppconn, and that isn't checked (yet) for in configure.

See Issue 107246
