To be able to use subqueries, I'm now using mysql-4.1.2b-alpha-win.zip
I'm using mysql-connector-java-3.1.2-alpha.zip as my jdbc driver to connect
to the db...

I'm selecting some columns from a table where the column is created using
Somehow, after creation, it becomes mediumint(9)
PreparedStatement.executeQuery throws SQLException.

I'm thinking maybe the datatype is somehow not recognized.

java.sql.SQLException: Unknown type '9 in column 0 of 3 in binary-encoded
result set.
 at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.unpackBinaryResultSetRow(MysqlIO.java:3888)
 at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.nextRow(MysqlIO.java:1211)

 at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.readResultsForQueryOrUpdate(MysqlIO.java:1824)
 at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.readAllResults(MysqlIO.java:1278)

Any ideas why this is happening? And any workaround available?

Thanks in advance.

How to repeat:
public void testBinaryProtocolMediumInt() throws Exception {
    	try {
    		int lowValue = -8388608;
    		int highValue = 8388607;
    		this.stmt.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS testBinaryProtocolMediumInt");
    		this.stmt.executeUpdate("CREATE TABLE testBinaryProtocolMediumInt (low MEDIUMINT, high MEDIUMINT)");
    		this.stmt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO testBinaryProtocolMediumInt VALUES (" + lowValue + ", " + highValue + ")");
    		PreparedStatement pStmt = this.conn.prepareStatement("SELECT low, high FROM testBinaryProtocolMediumInt");
    		this.rs = pStmt.executeQuery();
    		assertTrue(this.rs.getInt(1) == lowValue);
    		assertTrue(this.rs.getInt(2) == highValue);	
    	} finally {
    		this.stmt.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS testBinaryProtocolMediumInt");

Suggested fix:
Add the type(s) to MysqlIO.unpackBinaryResultSetRow().
