It should be. I know a lot of people are using ODB with SQLite on iOS.
So it is a matter of building the MySQL client library (note that it
is the C API library that you need, not the whole "Connector" stuff).
If you can do that, then I think there won't be any issues.

I am not sure what you mean by "your database connectors". But the
whole of ODB targeting SQLite has been compiled for ARM:

It is the MySQL client library that needs to be built with SSL support.
See this thread for details:

Sure, I am happy to help where I can. One thing that I would ask
though is that we take any further technical discussion over to
the odb-users mailing list, which, BTW, I've CC'ed to this reply.
