Bringing In Features from MySQL
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

When you view and edit features from a MySQL data source, you can do the following:

For AutoCAD Map 3D 2010, the recommended version of MySQL is 5.0.27.

In the 2008 release of AutoCAD Map 3D, a new column called geometrytype was added to the table named F_AttributeDefinition. To use AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 to access FDO data stores that were created in AutoCAD Map 3D 2007 and earlier, you must first connect to the data store containing this table and run a SQL script. Instructions for this are on the Procedure tab of this topic.

NoteThe MySQL architecture supports different storage engines, each with varying characteristics and capabilities. The API has custom commands for gathering information, transmitting exceptions, getting lists of accessible data stores, and creating connection objects. There is support for spatial data types and spatial query operations. For more information, refer to the FDO API Reference and the FDO Provider for MYSQL API Reference.
