QUOTE
Provides information for developers wishing to use the low-level C/C++-language NDB API for the MySQL® NDBCLUSTER storage engine. Includes concepts, terminology, programming class and structure references, practical examples, common problems, and tips for using the NDB API in applications.

The NDB and MGM APIs as presented in this guide are current for MySQL 5.1


The NDB API
QUOTE
The NDB API is an object-oriented application programming interface for MySQL Cluster that implements indexes, scans, transactions, and event handling. NDB transactions are ACID-compliant in that they provide a means to group together operations in such a way that they succeed (commit) or fail as a unit (rollback). It is also possible to perform operations in a "no-commit" or deferred mode, to be committed at a later time.


The MGM API
QUOTE
The MySQL Cluster Management API, also known as the MGM API, is a C-language programming interface intended to provide administrative services for the cluster. These include starting and stopping Cluster nodes, handling Cluster logging, backups, and restoration from backups, as well as various other management tasks.
