MySQL cocoa help!

  • In need of a developer who can use the MySQL cocoa framework (or any
    public license API) in an AppleScript Studio environment to access a
    MySQL database. Final product is a client application that can create
    a new record in mySQL and return the value of the auto_increment
    field. I already have a MySQL DB set up and ready to connect to.

    I apologize for this post but frustration levels have reached red-
    line. I believe Apple should have created a well documented API for
    mySQL connectivity with OBJC but they have not. The instructions for
    loading the MySQL-Cocoa sourceforge framework created by Dave Winters
    references a 'SmySQL_bundled.framework' folder, but no such folder
    exists in the disk image. Example files on http://mysql-
    cocoa.sourceforge.net/ for use of the framework have long been
    broken. All emails to parties involved in this project are unanswered.

    No knowledge of AppleScript needed. If the value can be returned into
    an NSLog, I can take it from there. Eventually, I'll push data into
    the DB but not required at this early stage. Given my newbie status
    in OBJC, I'm sure I'll need a bit of support to implement this task.
    Let's talk compensation and I'll share more details. If you are
    shocked that anyone would ask such a simple question and is willing
    to pay money for an answer, you're probably the right person for the
    task! ;-)

    But you're not reading the documentation. Okay, it's a little annoying that
    the name changed, but it says right in the README (those words, README, mean
    that you should read me - first!) that the document explaining how to embed
    a framework "was written when the framework was still called SMySQL ... so
    you will have to read MCPKit_bundled instead of SMySQL_bundled, but
    otherwise it is very accurate and complete."

    So first, build the project. This will generate MCPKit_bundled. Then do what
    the PDF document tells you. m.
