Boost C++ Libraries of the most highly regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the world. Herb Sutter and Andrei Alexandrescu, C++ Coding Standards



To run the examples, you need a MySQL server you can connect to. Examples make use of a database named boost_mysql_examples. The server hostname and credentials (username and password) are passed to the examples via the command line.

If you're using docker, you can use the container to simplify the process:

# If you're on a system supporting UNIX sockets. Note that /var/run/mysqld
# should be empty for this to work; you can specify a different directory, if it's not
> docker run -p 3306:3306 -v /var/run/mysqld:/var/run/mysqld -d

# If you're on a system that does not support UNIX sockets
> docker run -p 3306:3306 -d

# All the required data can be loaded by running example/db_setup.sql.
# If you're using the above container, the root user has a blank password
> mysql -u root < example/db_setup.sql

Please note that this container is just for demonstrative purposes, and is not suitable for production.

The root MySQL user for these containers is root and it has an empty password.
