QueryScript: SQL scripting language
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Introducing QueryScript: a programming language aimed for SQL scripting, seamlessly combining scripting power such as flow control & variables with standard SQL statements or RDBMS-specific commands.

QueryScript is available fro MySQL via common_schema, which adds MySQL-specific usage.

What does QueryScript look like? Here are a few code samples:

Turn a bulk DELETE operation into smaller tasks. Throttle in between.

while (DELETE FROM archive.events WHERE ts < CURDATE() LIMIT 1000)
{
  throttle 2;
}

Convert all InnoDB tables in the 'sakila' database to compressed format:

Adding dynamic fields to Signups on Drupal
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my day job at SkySQL I work with Drupal as our content management system.  One thing we often need to do is provide a way for people to sign up for events and the like.  One such event is the upcoming SkySQL and MariaDB: Solutions Day for the MySQL® Database and unlike other events we needed to take into account the dietary requirements of those wishing to attend.

For events registration we use the Signup module and use a theme template function to provide a set of standard fields.  The code looks something like this:

function ourtheme_signup_user_form($node) {
$form = array();
// If this function is providing any extra fields

Big Kettle News
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Dear Kettle fans,

Today I’m really excited to be able to announce a few really important changes to the Pentaho Data Integration landscape. To me, the changes that are being announced today compare favorably to reaching Kettle version 1.0 some 9 years ago, or reaching version 2.0 with plugin support or even open sourcing Kettle itself…

First of all…

Pentaho is again open sourcing an important piece of software.  Today we’re bringing all big data related software to you as open source software.  This includes all currently available capabilities to access HDFS, MongoDB, Cassandra, HBase, the specific VFS drivers we created as well as the ability to execute work inside of Hadoop (MapReduce), Amazon EMR, Pig and so

See you at LCA2012

Linux.conf.au this year kicks off next week in Ballarat, just down the road from me.  I'll be there and even have a speaking gig, not in the main conference but in the HA and Distributed Storage mini-conf before the main event.

I'll be talking about MySQL®, the companies that now exist to support it, and the third party products that are starting to proliferate in what appears to be a community effort to address perceived shortcomings in the Oracle offerings.  Many of these offerings are in the HA space, and there have been some pretty amazing developments recently.

So if you want to find some history of

Documentation in SQL: CALL for help()
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Documentation is an important part of any project. On the projects I maintain I put a lot of effort on documentation, and, frankly, the majority of time spent on my projects is on documentation.

The matter of keeping the documentation faithful is a topic of interest. I'd like to outline a few documentation bundling possibilities, and the present the coming new documentation method for common_schema. I'll talk about any bundling that is NOT man pages.

High level: web docs

This is the initial method of documentation I used for openark kit and mycheckpoint. It's still valid for mycheckpoint. Documentation is web-based. You need Internet access to read it. It's in HTML
