ProxySQL query_cache_size issue with MySQL 8.0.3+ in backend

If one try to connect to ProxySQL via JDBC 8.0.X he gets error

com.mysql.cj.exceptions.CJException: Unknown system variable ‘query_cache_size’

MySQL Connector/J source code shows

if (!versionMeetsMinimum(8, 0, 3)) {
queryBuf.append(", @@query_cache_size AS query_cache_size");
queryBuf.append(", @@query_cache_type AS query_cache_type");

and ProxySQL are treated as MySQL 5.5.30


So for now a workaround is:

update global_variables set variable_value="8.0.4 (ProxySQL)" where variable_name='mysql-server_version';
load mysql variables to run;save mysql variables to disk;
