Gearman meets MySQL Cluster (NDBAPI)
+7 Vote Up -0Vote Down
After a discussion with my colleague Stephane Varoqui we decided to see how Gearman and the NDBAPI could be used together. The result of the POC was a Gearman worker and a couple of clients (clients and workers use Google Protocol Buffers as the protocol). The worker can:
  • set/get/delete records on a single table in MySQL Cluster using the primary key
  • set/get/delete "any" type. It is not possible to dynamically add types but this is done at compile time.
  • supports the following SQL data types: (UNSIGNED) INTEGER, (UNSIGNED) BIGINT, CHAR, VARCHAR/VARBINARY
  • supports the following Google Protocol Buffer

HOWTO: MySQL Connector/C++ on Mac OS X
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Excited with the release of the MySQL Connector/C++, I thought I’d get it going on Mac OS X.

You’ll first hit the problem that Mac OS X doesn’t come with CMake. So you’ll have to download it from the site - there’s a warning there that the .dmg installer only works for Tiger, but I ran it on Leopard, and its just fine. Don’t forget to allow it to create links in /usr/bin for ease of use.

After that, you will need to install glib. But to get glib going, you need some dependencies:

Sakila the MySQL Dolphin at CommunityOne and JavaOne
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yes, I know. JavaOne is about Duke, the friendly mascot of Java technology. Created and maintained by James Gosling and all.

But MySQL also introduces Sakila to the JavaOne attendees. Sakila is also friendly, and the mascot of MySQL technology. The dolphin was chosen by MySQL founders Michael “Monty” Widenius and David Axmark, as was its name Sakila (which came from a naming contest in the early days).

Together with Giuseppe (in the picture above) and the rest of the MySQL Community Team, I will be handing out incarnations of Sakila (also seen above in the pic) at CommunityOne and JavaOne as follows:

MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.1 Released as Beta
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today MySQL releases the first beta version of MySQL Connector/ODBC 5.1. This means that Connector/ODBC 5.1 is now feature complete. Go download it!

Connector/ODBC 5.1 is suitable for most MySQL versions in active use today. It works with MySQL 4.1, 5.0, 5.1 and 6.0. If anyone is still on 4.0 or earlier releases, you should have upgraded ages ago; consider Connector/ODBC 5.1 “the final straw”.

As I wrote in September when we released the alpha version,

It is a partial rewrite of the the original MyODBC 3.51 code base, originally developed by Monty and Venu Anuganti, including individual parts of the

Ruby on Rails 2.0 Released

Ruby on Rails 2.0 was released last week, It’s done!, David Heinemeier Hansson notes.

Ruby on Rails has come a long way since Lenz Grimmer’s interview with DHH in February 2006.

Browsing DHH’s blog, I find snippets (bolding mine) like

Piggy-backing off the new drive for resources are a number of simplifications for controller and view methods that deal with URLs.

As you might have gathered, Action Pack in Rails 2.0 is all about getting closer with HTTP and all its glory.

Symbian enlightened by LAMP

Followers of the Forum Nokia Developer Discussion Boards saw interesting pre-announcements last month:

Nokia has ported MySQL and PHP to Symbian.

With 165 million cumulative Symbian smartphones shipped since the formation of Symbian and currently 134 Symbian smartphone models commercially available, it would be interesting to see the effects on the 8,134 third-party Symbian applications commercially available by what Nokia calls “PAMP”.

Availability is planned for next month, at the CCNC 2008 (Fifth IEEE Consumer Communications &Networking Conference, 10 - 12 January 2008 in Las
