Since I have yet to receive any official response from Sun about the source distribution conflicts between the GNU license and Apple’s distribution licenses, here is a binary release of the static library. This will only allow compilation of device targets to utilize calls from libmysqlclient.
To use this library: make sure to include and copy the appropriate header files into your project ala #include “mysql.h”, add libmysqlclient.a as a existing framework. Completing these two operations will allow applications to be compiled for iPhone/iPod Touch using the libmysqlclient library. All functions will work just as they would in a desktop application compiled against the desktop version of this library.
