HowTo: Integrating MySQL for Visual Studio with Connector/Net
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of the most frequent questions in our forums is about how to get the graphical integration when using Visual Studio with MySQL databases.

When developing applications with MySQL databases there are two basics products: a .net driver for MySQL, which is MySQL Connector/Net, and a tool to integrate all of the Visual Studio database oriented tools such as the Server Explorer window. These tools are designed to make a lot easier the creation and edition of MySQL databases when using an IDE like Visual Studio.

MySQL for Visual Studio is a product including all of the Visual Studio integration previously available as part of Connector/Net. The 1.2.1 version is a beta release of this product which is feature complete but still can contain minor bugs and is not suitable for production environments.

Building MySQL with boost on windows
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As you've probably heard already MySQL needs boost to build.

However, in the good ol' MySQL tradition, the above link does give you only the instructions on how to build it on linux. And completely ignores the fact that there're other OSes too that people develop on.

To fill in that gap, I've compiled a small step by step guide on how to do it on windows. Note that I always, as a principle, build out-of-source.

The typical setup I have is :

bzr clone lp:~mysql/mysql-server/5.7 mysql-trunk
cd mysql-trunk
mkdir bld
cd bld
cmake -DWITH_DEBUG=1 -DMYSQL_PROJECT_NAME=mysql-trunk ..
devenv /build debug mysql-trunk.sln

This has been tested to work on a 32 bit compile using VS2013 on a Windows7 64

Ghosts of MySQL Past, Part 9: BEST. Team. Name. EVER.
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

(This is part 9 in a series, part 8 is here – because reverse chronological order totally makes sense here)

So, back around 2007, somebody noticed that an awful lot of the downloads of MySQL and associated utilities from mysql.com were for Windows. Of course, it’s then immediately pointed out that the vast majority of Linux users will not be heading to mysql.com to download MySQL, instead using the packages from their distribution.

However, the number of people working on MySQL who had ever even attempted to compile the MySQL server on Windows when given the number of mysql users on

MyQuery 3.5.4 Released - Now with Client side dynamic columns!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
It was quite a while ago since I released a new version of MyQuery, my Windows based query tool for MariaDB and MySQL. I did build a 3.5.3 version, but I decided not to do a public release of that. But now we have 3.5.4 ready, and there is some new shiny features in it. The main feature is that the dialog that you can use to inspect individual fields with, which pops up when you doubleclick (or now you can Right-click and select Show Menu) in a field, has been expanded.

To being with, you can use this to navigate the fields, so that you don't have to close this dialog and open it in the next field, instead there are navigational buttons in the Dialog.

But there is also some additions to the dialog itself. If you are using MariaDB and the Dynamic Columns feature, which is mostly used with the Cassandra Storage Engine but can be used with any

MariaDB Database Disk snapshot backups on Windows
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Using disk snapshots to perform MariaDB backups has become more and more common, but this seems to have been limited to Linux and Cloud environments. There seems that there has been a notion that Snapshots cannot be done on native Windows, the way we can do snapshots using LVM on Linux for example. This is actually False, if you use the NTFS filesystem snapshoting is built in and has been so for a long time, the base for it is the Volume Snapshot Service (VSS) which was introduced as far back as Windows XP.

Using Snapshots to backup on Linux or Windows works well, assuming that the storage engine you use can recover on startup, the backups created this was are physically consistent but not logically, but InnoDB will recover this. Also note that any warnings about using snapshots with MyISAM also

How to: Using MySQL Connector/NET with Windows Store Apps
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This post will show how to use Connector/NET and Windows Store Apps in Windows 8 to connect and retrieve data from a MySql Server database.

MySQL for Windows Store apps
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Windows 8 has ushered in the era of Windows Store apps and touch in a Windows OS.  Windows Store apps can be written in a multitude of languages including all .NET languages, Javascript, HTML, and C/C++.  We want to make it easy to write Windows Store apps that connect to the MySQL database.  To that end, we have included Windows Store compatibility in our recent Connector/Net 6.7 release.

 This is done by providing a separate assembly that exposes some of the functionality of the standard Connector/Net provider.   Some of the areas of functionality that is limited or missing as compared to stock Connector/Net are:

  • SSL connections or Windows authentication is not supported
  • MySQLDataAdapter objects are not supported. All access should be through MySQLCommand and MySQLDataReader.
