Changes in MySQL Connector/J 6.0.2 (2016-04-11, Milestone 1)

   Version 6.0.2 Milestone 1 is the first development release of the
   6.0 branch of MySQL Connector/J.

   The major features of Connector/J 6.0 include:

     * Supports MySQL 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7.

     * Supports the JDBC 4.2 specification.

     * Supports the Java 8 platform (use Connector/J 5.1 for
       Java 7 or earlier).

     * Supports the new X DevAPI. The X DevAPI enables
       application developers to write code that combines the
       strengths of the relational and document models using a
       modern, NoSQL-like syntax that does not assume previous
       experience writing traditional SQL. To learn more about
       how to write applications using the X DevAPI see the X
       DevAPI User's Guide
       For more information about how the X DevAPI is
       implemented in Connector/J, MySQL Connector/J X DevAPI
       Reference (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-j).
       Please note that the X DevAPI requires at least MySQL
       Server version 5.7.12 or higher with the X Plugin
       enabled. For general documentation about how to get started
       using MySQL as a Document Store, see

   For other significant changes from Connector/J 5.1 to 6.0,
   see Changes in Connection Properties
   and Changes in the Connector/J API
   Connector/J 6.0.2 includes all the bug fixes that have been
   incorporated into Connector/J 5.1.38, plus the fixes
   described below.

   Bugs Fixed

     * FabricMySQLDataSource.getConnection() threw a null pointer
       exception when a master failover took place. (Bug

     * The OSGi manifest file in the Connector/J JAR file did not
       expose the MySQL Fabric packages, so the Fabric-related
       classes could not be resolved even though they were
       present in the JAR file. (Bug #22385172)
