New functionality

It is now possible to connect to the server via Unix domain sockets (on Unix platforms) or shared memory (Windows). For domain socket connections, add “localSocket=<socket_path>” to the connection URL. For shared memory connections, add “sharedMemory=<shared_memory_base_name>“.

Shared memory and unix domain socket support is implemented using Java Native Access (JNA) library, and this means that applications that use these features will need jna.jar and jna-platform.jar to be present in the classpath at runtime (CONJ-50, CONJ-51). More information about the JNA project can be found at

Bugs fixed in this release

Some of the bugs fixed include:

  • ResultSet.getTimestamp() did not work with TIME columns (CONJ-54)
  • DatabaseMetaData will now return correct information about case senstivity handling, dependent on lower_case_table_names database parameter(CONJ-55)
    • supportsMixedCaseIdentifiers(),supportsMixedCaseQuotedIdentifiers() will return true if lower_case_table_names is 0 (case-sensitive)
    • storesLowerCaseIdentifiers(),storesLowerCaseQuotedIdentifiers() will return true if lower_case_table_names is 1 ( case-insensitive, lowercase conversion)
    • storesMixedCase[Identifiers(),storesMixedCaseQuotedIdentifiers() will returns true if lower_case_table_names is 2 (case-insensitive, but case-preserving)
  • DatabaseMetaData.getDatabaseMinorVersion() incorrectly returned major version instead of minor (CONJ-56)
  • PreparedStatement.setObject() now correctly handles objects of type java.util.Date (CONJ-57)
  • If connection is idle, Statement.cancel() is now a no-op. Previously, “KILL QUERY” was sent to database no matter whether statement was executed or not (CONJ-58)
  • Provide public method Driver.unloadDriver() to cleanup after driver unload, to workaround Tomcat’s classloading issues (CONJ-61)
  • Make PreparedStatement.toString() output more meaningful (CONJ-62)

The MariaDB Java Client can be used with MariaDB, MySQL, and Percona Server.
