MySQL-Sandbox 3.1.01 - First release after the change
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have released MySQL-Sandbox 3.1.01, which is the first release after the move to GitHub. While the changes are not so spectacular (it's a minor release, with mostly bug fixes), I am pleased to see that the move has started producing collaboration. Two of the changes were provided by Daniël van Eeden and Mark Leith, who have scratched some of their own itches by providing useful patches.

All in all, this period of working with GitHub …

Improving Sakila database
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Sakila sample database was created almost 10 years ago, as a sample set of data for MySQL courses and examples.

The database was developed by MySQL employees, with substantial contributions form the community.

Recently, the database was updated to use some of the features in MySQL 5.7. As a result, we had two sets of samples, one to use with MySQL 5.0+, and one that only loads with MySQL …

Sample employees database migrated to GitHub
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It's migration time. There was another project that I use often and was still in Launchpad. The Sample Employees Database is now on GitHub, under the same license it had before (CC A-SA 3).

Figure 1 - Employees database
This database is interesting because it is not too small (like Sakila) and not too big. It has enough data to allow you to test in a non trivial way.
Installation and testInstalling the database is easy:

+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have three pieces of information to share about MySQL::Sandbox:

  • Version 3.1.0 has migrated from Launchpad to GitHub
  • This version is released under the Apache license. Both these changes are meant to improve and promote cooperation on the project.
  • There is an important change related to usability. When using replication with MySQL::Sandbox and MySQL 5.6+, the server UUIDs become more readable (see below).

First, some words on the location changes. About two …

Proposal to extend binary operators in MySQL
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In order to make it easier to work with data stored as binary strings (BINARY/VARBINARY) we are considering extending the &,|,^,~,<<,>> operators, to accept any-size binary strings and return binary string data as response. This can be useful for several complex data types not covered by the basic SQL data types (e.g. working with IPV6 addresses, manipulating UUID, etc).


Let's say we're interested in getting all the networks that contain the given IP address. With ipv4 the common practice is to store the IP addresses as INT and execute:

SELECT inet_ntoa(network) AS network, …
