MySQL Connector For .NET

Connector/NET enables developers to easily create .NET applications that require secure, high-performance data connectivity with MySQL. It implements the required ADO.NET interfaces and integrates into ADO.NET aware tools. Developers can build applications using their choice of .NET languages. Connector/NET is a fully managed ADO.NET driver written in 100% pure C#.

Connector/NET includes full support for:

  • MySQL 5.0 features (such as stored procedures)
  • MySQL 4.1 features (server-side prepared statements, Unicode, and shared memory access, and so forth)
  • Large-packet support for sending and receiving rows and BLOBs up to 2 gigabytes in size.
  • Protocol compression which allows for compressing the data stream between the client and server.
  • Support for connecting using TCP/IP sockets, named pipes, or shared memory on Windows.
  • Support for connecting using TCP/IP sockets or Unix sockets on Unix.
  • Support for the Open Source Mono framework developed by Novell.
  • Fully managed, does not utilize the MySQL client library.
