MySql Connector/Net source code has a new home!
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I would like to proudly announce that we have migrated our Connector/Net source code repositories to LaunchPad (www.launchpad.net) and are using BZR for our source control.  We have taken our old public SVN repository (http://svn.mysql.com/svnpublic/connector-net/) offline. 

We will be using LaunchPad for source control and feature management.  This means we'll use blue prints and the series system.  We will continue to use our existing bugs database found at bugs.mysql.com and our existing forum found at forums.mysql.com.

You can find the new source repositories for Connector/Net at https://launchpad.net/connectornet.  If you have any questions about how this affects you, please don't hesitate to send me an email.

I’m Offering Pro-Bono Consulting
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I started my company about a year ago, but I’ve been doing consulting for a long time. In fact, my first job in the IT industry was working for a consulting firm. Before that, starting as far back as grade school, I was involved in a lot of volunteer civic and community service activities. I admire companies who get involved in their communities, or even outside of their communities, wherever help is needed.

As part of my business plan, I’ve put in place a policy of accepting one pro-bono consulting project per year. So far, I haven’t gotten any requests for free consulting work, so here’s my public shout out to let you know what types of services are available:

1. Speaking or Training. My specialties are things like advanced Linux administration and SQL, but I’m perfectly capable of delivering

SQL code for SQL and Relational Theory
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I am reading SQL and Relational Theory by C. J. Date. Baron Schwartz wrote a nice review for it. I am reading the online version, about half way through, so am not sure if it has an accompanying CD with source code. In any case, if you want to play with some SQL code listed in the book, here is the script to generate the tables and rows (or should I say relations at a certain point in time with tuples?)

CREATE TABLE S
   ( SNO    VARCHAR(5)   NOT NULL ,
     SNAME  VARCHAR(25)  NOT NULL ,
     STATUS INTEGER      NOT NULL ,
     CITY   VARCHAR(20)  NOT NULL ,
     UNIQUE ( SNO ) ) ;

Calling MySQL fans in the near west suburb of Chicago
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve been to the Chicago MySQL meetups a few times at Uncommon Ground near Wriggly Field. Honestly I don’t think I gained much out of it. The few times I was there, the group was small, which is not necessarily bad. (In fact, a small group can even be a good thing.) But the thing got me was that there was too much talk, not enough action. I haven’t been to its meetings for a few years so I cannot comment on its state after I left.

When I think a user group, I think about fans getting together hacking stuff: demonstrating cool tips and techniques, dissecting a new technology such as MySQL proxy by a user who have done that and learned some hard lessons along the way with no marketing talk, discussing solutions to problems a user has, providing pointers and efficient scripts, etc. In such a setting, each member of the group takes turns

Customizing db_STRESS
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of our colleagues, Dimitri, at the Paris Sun solution center has developed a real neat and useful tool called dim_STAT. To make it short it's a tool for both high-level and detailed, monitoring and performance analysis of Solaris and Linux systems.

Data is collected and saved in a MySQL database, and it provides a very functional web base user interface. It allows real time or off line monitoring, multi-host etc.

Actually what is really interesting with dim_STAT is that, when I'm benchmarking or tryinng to find a performance bottleneck, I can collect all the data I need and come back later for analysis.

Recently, Dimitri has added a new tool db_STRESS, that allows us to put load on a database system and gives a high level metric (TPS: Transactions per seconds) and therefor allows us to compare how different systems

ActiveState Perl 5.10, Windows XP, and DBD-mysql
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few months ago I installed ActivePerl 5.10 on a Windows XP Pro workstation. Next I tried to install DBD::mysql using CPAN, it failed. When I browsed modules via ppm, a GUI in this version of ActiveState Perl on Windows, DBD::mysql was not listed as an available module.

I then downloaded the source code, manually modified the MAKE file, fiddled with Visual Studio NMAKE, compiled it a few times, without success.

Google revealed the existence of Strawberry Perl. So I removed ActiveState Perl, installed Strawberry, ran ppm install DBI, ppm install DBD-mysql. And it worked.

Fast-forward a few weeks, I started playing with EPIC, a plugin for Eclipse that supposedly provides a nice IDE for Perl development and debugging. As a result, I started fiddling with PadWalker, a prerequisites for EPIC. I couldn’t

Workbench Rocking
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Mike Hillyer talks about MySQL Workbench. Very nice workshop! (Hillyer will make slides and screen recording of his talk available.)

This is a great platform-native application. All presentation code is written for each specific platform. It is the second most-popular download and the second most purchased product in the MySQL online shop.  There's a community edition and there's a standard edition of the Workbench. People in the workshop got a 1 year subscription to the commercial, standard edition.

I'm sitting in the room here in MySQL Conference. I'm running a WB 5.1 edition I've built on my MacBook Pro laptop.

mysql connector/net 6.0.2 beta has been released
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi,
MySQL Connector/Net 6.0.2, a new version of the all-managed .NET driver for MySQL has been released.  This is a beta release and is intended to introduce you to the new features and enhancements we are planning.  This release should not be used in a production environment.

This release was quickly pushed out due to a problem that caused 6.0.1 to not register with Visual Studio correctly.  We also made a small correction to a previous bug fix.  SQL generated from entity framework for stored procedures will now not directly reference the schema.  This allows the model to move to a different database without need of change.  We had previously made this change for tables but failed to do so for procedures.

It is now available in source and binary form from [
