Hi Walter,

You probably missed the fact that we have Connector/C++ 8.0 now, with completely new API (the X DevAPI) and completely new implementation underneath, which do not rely on Boost. I recommend that you check it out.

Not everyone is willing or able to switch to the new API, so we still keep the legacy JDBC API around. But if you write new code then use the new API and the new connector library. Note however, that the new connector uses the new x-protocol to communicate with the server and for that reason you need MySQL Server 8.0 on the other end (that is another reason why the legacy connector is still around).

See this for more information and this for X DevAPI reference
