Release Notes for MariaDB Connector/J 3.0.7


MariaDB Connector/J is a lightweight JDBC driver (Type 4) for building applications on top of MariaDB database products with Java 8, Java 11, and Java 17.

Notable Changes

  • For compatibility with MariaDB Connector/J 2.7, when LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILELOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE is executed, an InputStream object can be used as the local infile using the Statement.setLocalInfileInputStream() method. (CONJ-986)

  • The PreparedStatement.setObject() method can be called with a value that differs from the specified SQLType, and the value is converted to the corresponding type. (CONJ-994)

    • For example, the value "true" is accepted when the SQLType is Types.BOOLEAN:

      stmt.setObject(1, "true", Types.BOOLEAN);

Issues Fixed

  • When data is read from the ResultSet returned by the DatabaseMetadata.getTypeInfo() method, an error can be raised. (CONJ-993)

    • In previous releases, the following error could be raised:

      java.sql.SQLDataException: integer overflow
  • When the timezone connection parameter is set to UTC, an error is raised. (CONJ-990)
