Description:
The MySQL Ref Man says the following:

 The following are new reserved words in MySQL 5.0: ASENSITIVE, CALL, CONDITION, CONNECTION, CONTINUE, CURSOR, DECLARE, DETERMINISTIC, EACH, ELSEIF, EXIT, FETCH, GOTO, INOUT, INSENSITIVE, ITERATE, LABEL, LEAVE, LOOP, MODIFIES, OUT, READS, RELEASE, REPEAT, RETURN, SCHEMA, SCHEMAS, SENSITIVE, SPECIFIC, SQL, SQLEXCEPTION, SQLSTATE, SQLWARNING, TRIGGER, UNDO, UPGRADE, WHILE.

DatabaseMetaData.getSQLKeywords() returns only the following:

 AUTO_INCREMENT
 BINARY
 BLOB
 ENUM
 INFILE
 LOAD
 MEDIUMINT
 OPTION
 OUTFILE
 REPLACE
 SET
 TEXT
 UNSIGNED
 ZEROFILL

How to repeat:
Call DatabaseMetaData.getSQLKeywords() for a MySQL connection.
