Arduino to MySQL Direct Part 2

Chuck has come out with an update to his MySQL connector - http://drcharlesbell.blogspot.com/2013/10/introducing-mysql-connectorarduino-100.html

There is a new release of the Connector/Arduino on Launchpad! See https://launchpad.net/mysql-arduino. The new version supports a number of refinements and a few new features. These include:

  • Improved support for processing result sets
  • Conditional compilation to omit result set handling features to save program space
  • Support for the Arduino WiFi shield
  • New version() method to check version of the connector
  • Simplified download (no more patching SHA1!)

So What is It?


If you have never heard of Connector/Arduino, it is simply a library designed to allow the Arduino platform to connect to and issue queries to a MySQL Database server.

Simply add an Ethernet shield to your Arduino and use the library to connect your Arduino to a MySQL database server. Yes, no more web-based hand waving or third party systems! Cool.
