How keep connection with MySQL Server 5

  • During the execution of long-read data needed to communicate with the database server. Continuous check of connection to the server is required to insert a large number of records.

    Please advise how to check the connection and how to deal with situations where one loses the connection to the database server

    I can often cause the following code:

    static QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QMYSQL","Connection-To-MySQLServer-5.5");
    static QSqlQuery query(db);

        MessageBox (hwnd, "---",
        "Lost Connection", MB_OK|MB_ICONINFORMATION);
        return FALSE;
        MessageBox (hwnd, "---",
        "Success", MB_OK|MB_ICONINFORMATION);
        return TRUE;


  • Your code has nothing to do with losing a connection. It's only creating a connection and either succeeding or failing.

    If an existing connection is lost between your machine and the server then queries will start failing. The QSqlQuery::lastError() call should return an error of type QSqlError::ConnectionError. You can also periodically check QSqlDatabase::isOpen(). Since you are using MySQL you can also use the MYSQL_OPT_RECONNECT in QSqlDatabase::setConnectOptions() to automatically attempt reconnection (it might still fail).

    How you recover, if possible at all, is dependent on your application. If you have been working inside a transaction the server has probably already rolled back the transaction so you need to recover at that point in your application's processing.

Looks like your connection to Qt Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
