Migrating from C to C++

We are starting a migration of our code from C to C++. As a first step, we are bringing up an environment where our developers can learn to use C++ (if they don't already know it). We are initially leaving our code as C but compiling/linking it as C++ - that is renaming all the files to have C++ extensions, modifying all the header files to have the "#ifdef __cplusplus extern "C" ....." logic, applying "extern C" logic as needed in the programs, using a C++ compiler (i.e. gcc/g++), etc.

My questions are in regards to MySQL API.

1. Can we still use the C Connector library but compile/link programs under the C++ compiler?

2. If so, are there any changes that need to be made (either to make files or code) to use it in this manner?

Thanks for your help in advance,
