MySQL Connector/Node.js 1.0.5 m4 development has been released

MySQL Connector/Node.js is a new Node.js driver for use with the X DevAPI. This release, v1.0.5 M4, is the fourth development release of the MySQL Connector/Node.js 1.0 series.

The X DevAPI enables application developers to write code that combines the strengths of the relational and document models using a modern, NoSQL-like syntax that does not assume previous experience writing traditional SQL.

To learn more about how to write applications using the X DevAPI, see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/x-devapi-userguide/en/index.html. For more information about how the X DevAPI is implemented in MySQL Connector/Node.js, and its usage, see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/connector-nodejs.

Develop by Example – Document Store: Working with Express.js, AngularJS and Node.js

In previous blog posts we explained how to perform certain actions in a MySQL database set up as a document store using Connector/Node.js. In this blog post we are going to use some of the examples covered to explain how to start working with an application created with Express.js, AngularJS, Node.js, and MySQL Connector/Node.js.

MySQL Connector/Node.JS 1.0.4 now on npmjs.com

MySQL Connector/Node.JS 1.0.4 was recently released as a development milestone release. This is the first version available via npmjs.com. npmjs.com is the central registry for Node.JS packages. This and potential future official MySQL packages can be found using the @mysql organisation. For this to work we had to change the package name to contain that prefix and have chosen the name @mysql/xdevapi as this package provides the implementation of our X DevAPI for Node.JS and we have a free namespace for potential future libraries as part of our Connector/Node.JS product.

Given an existing Node.JS project we can easily install the library:

$ npm install --save @mysql/xdevapi …

Taking the MySQL document store for a spin

This is not a comprehensive review, nor an user guide. It's a step-by-step account of my initial impressions while trying the new MySQL XProtocol and the document store capabilities. In fact, I am barely scratching the surface here: more articles will come as time allows.

MySQL 5.7 has been GA for several months, as it was released in October 2015. Among the many features and improvements, I was surprised to see the MySQL team emphasizing the JSON data type. While it is an interesting feature per se, I failed to see the reason why so many articles and conference talks were focused around this single feature. Everything became clear when, with the release of MySQL 5.7.12, the MySQL team announced a new release model.

Major post-GA features in the 5.7 release!

Interesting developments in the MySQL world – it can now be used as a document store and you can query the database using JavaScript instead of SQL (via the MySQL Shell). There is also a new X Plugin (see: mysql-5.7.12/rapid/) (which now makes use of protocol buffers (see: mysql-5.7.12/extra/protobuf/)). I will agree, this is more than just a maintenance release.

Do get started playing with MySQL Shell. If you’re using the yum repository, remember to ensure you have …

LLC-Technologies-Collier/Demo-SCCC-Byte-AngularJS

Hello dear readers and attendees,

This is the post that I will be/ will have been referencing during my presentation to the Seattle Central Community College’s Byte club on Thursday, December 10th at 1500-1630.

I will begin with a bit of an autobio and find out what kind of students we have in attendance. Please feel free to comment if you’d like to keep in touch before or after the presentation. I will discuss some of the bits and pieces of some industry standard platforms which I’ve developed, deployed, maintained, managed, co-operated, administered and replaced. We can discuss some of the patterns that work well in the industry, and some that are a bit harder to tame.

Once we have touched most of the areas of specialization represented at the meeting, I will dive in to an AngularJS demo I am developing in github here:

MySQL JSON Functions

What the MySQL team is doing with JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) in MySQL 5.7 is great! The MySQL Server Blog (Rick Hillegas and Dag Wanvik) published two key articles about new JSON functions. If you don’t follow these, let me highlight them as a set:

Most folks know how important JSON is to web development. I like the following visual that …

Top 5 JavaScript tools you shouldn’t be without

JavaScript has emerged in the past couple years as the de facto expression of next generation web technologies, and a critical component of HTML5 technologies – along with CSS and JQuery. JavaScript is really ubiquitous – it really is showing up everywhere! There are many other reasons why JavaScript and JS-based tools are becoming the wave of the future. JavaScript is the #1 most-used language on GitHub, and this trend is only going to increase. As one article put it, “JavaScript is the number one …

Popular Programming Languages

First of all, Happy New Year!

IEEE Spectrum published a ranking of the most popular programming languages. Computational journalist Nick Diakopoulos wrote the article. While it may surprise some, I wasn’t surprised to find SQL in the top ten.

Nick weighted and combined 12 metrics from 10 sources (including IEEE Xplore, Google, and GitHub) to rank the most popular programming languages.

  • Compiled programming languages (Java [#1], C [#2], C++ [#3], C# [#4], Objective-C [#16])
  • Interpreted programming languages (Python [#5], JavaScript [#6], PHP [#7], Ruby [#8], Perl [#11], HTML [#12])
  • Data languages (SQL [#9], MATLAB …
