MySQL Tools for Visual Studio 1.0.1 beta has been released.

Today we have released MySQL Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.0.1 beta -- a downloadable plug-in for Visual Studio 2005 that allows Windows developers to quickly build MySQL data-driven applications with Visual Studio. With this plug-in, developers will be able to create, modify and manage MySQL database objects with an easy-to-use interface from within the Visual Studio IDE. This product is delivered as a package compatible with Visual Studio

2005 and delivers the following features:

  • DDEX (Data Designer Extensibility) compatibility
  • Ability to work with MySQL objects (tables, views, stored procedures, etc) from within Server Explorer

Note
It is critical that this release only be used with Connector/Net 5.0.1. After installing Connector/Net 5.0.1, you will need to make a small change in your machine.config file. This file should be located at %win%\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config (%win% should be the location of your Windows folder). Near the bottom of the file you will see a line like this:

<add name="MySQL Data Provider" invariant="MySql.Data.MySqlClient"
        description=".Net Framework Data Provider for MySQL" 
        type="MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlClientFactory, MySql.Data"/>

It needs to be changed to be like this:

<add name="MySQL Data Provider" invariant="MySql.Data.MySqlClient"
        description=".Net Framework Data Provider for MySQL"
        type="MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlClientFactory, MySql.Data,
        Version=5.0.1.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d"/>

Note that this change is only necessary due to a small bug in the installer for Connector/Net 5.0.1 that will be corrected for 5.0.2.

Several bugs have been fixed since the first release of these tools, and we have added preliminary support for MySQL 4.1. There are a number of known problems with the support for MySQL 4.1 that will be addressed before the GA release.

We are planning on including tighter integration with Visual Studio's DataSet Designer in the 1.1 GA release. This will include the ability for users to create typed datasets that they can reference from within their code. This is a very important feature for us and one we are working hard to provide.

MySQL Tools for Visual Studio binaries are currently available under a no-charge license. We plan to release the source code and are currently determining what license the source code will be placed under. The plug-in can be downloaded from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/visual-studio-plugin/1.0.html.

  10. MySQL Connector/Net 5.0.1 Beta has been released. MySQL Connector/Net is an
    all-managed ADO.Net provider for MySQL. While this release is suitable for
    any version of MySQL, it is strongly encouraged that this release not be
    used on any production data. This release is feature complete with the
    exception of DTC support in System.Transactions.

  11. The MySQL Visual Studio Plugin is a DDEX provider; a plug-in for Visual Studio 2005 that allows developers to maintain database structures, and supports built-in data-driven application development tools.

    The current version of the MySQL Visual Studio Plugin includes only database maintenance tools. Data-driven application development tools are not supported.
