IntelliJ IDEA Open Sourced
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With IntelliJ now being available under an Open Source license, developers have another option to choose from when it comes to Java-based IDEs/Frameworks (Eclipse and NetBeans being the other two prominent ones). Choice is always good, and being an Open Source enthusiast, I of course welcome JetBrain's move!

However, as I'm not really a heavy GUI-based IDE user myself, I can't really comment on which one is the best. These kind of discussions tend to turn into a Holy War anyway... In the end it's likely that each of them gets the job done and you have to come to your own conclusions, based on your personal preference and requirements.

I personally would be interested in

  • Milestones in the History of Thematic Cartography -- This resource provides a comprehensive view of the history of cartography, with examples of maps created throughout the ages and background information about the contexts within which those maps, visualizations and map making technologies were created. Explore each time period, click on the images and stories found throughout each time line, and read more about the history of creating thematic maps as a means of visualizing data.

    Comparison Between Solr And Sphinx Search Servers (Solr Vs Sphinx – Fight!)
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    In the past few weeks I've been implementing advanced search at Plaxo, working quite closely with Solr enterprise search server. Today, I saw this relatively detailed comparison between Solr and its main competitor Sphinx (full credit goes to StackOverflow user mausch who had been using Solr for the past 2 years). For those still confused, Solr and Sphinx are similar to MySQL FULLTEXT search, or for those even more confused, think Google (yeah, this is a bit of a stretch, I know).

    Similarities

    • Both Solr and Sphinx satisfy all of your requirements. They're fast and designed to index and search large bodies of data efficiently.

    More MySQL connectors
    Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Some time ago I posted a compilation of applications and programming languages that provide an API to connect to the MySQL Server (http://mysql.com/). As it turned out, I forgot a few that I would like to mention here:

    • Apache DBD API: a MySQL driver for mod_apr_dbd is not included in the official distribution, but can be obtained seperately from here. Some distributions (e.g. openSUSE) actually provide installable packages of this driver module.
    • GRASS MySQL driver

    ADO.Net Entity Framework on MySQL
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Reggie Burnett, the lead behind MySQL Connector/NET, will be presenting a MySQL webinar, "For ISVs: ADO.NET Entity Framework for MySQL (http://mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/display-397.html" target="_blank)", tomorrow at 10 Pacific Time!

    Among other topics, Reggie will discuss how to

    • Develop your application against SQL Server and then switch it to MySQL with zero code changes

    • Optimize your database schema without requiring any code changes in your application

    • Use LinQ syntax for type safety in your applications

    Valgrinding Drizzle
    +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Like so many others, I got interested in the Drizzle project when it started. Some good ideas, lots of enthusiasm, and just pure GPL license, no "yes, we will take your work for free and sell proprietary licenses to it" SCA.

    I even started contributing some development, fixing a number of Valgrind-detected bugs in Drizzle. I am proud that we kept the MySQL code 100% free of Valgrind errors, and wanted to help keep the same in Drizzle. So I debugged and fixed quite a few of the Valgrind-detected bugs that had crept in since forking from MySQL.

    As I remember, I got down to two or three remaining or so. However, I it did discourage me somewhat to see how quickly these bugs had been allowed to enter the code. I remember one case where there was a Drizzle patch that had tried to simplify some field types. As I remember, the patch tried to simplify the code by eliminating some of

    Learning Python
    +2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    Among other things, these past few months I have been working on setting up Buildbot, including adding various enhancements and bug fixes that are needed to properly build and test the MariaDB and MySQL code base.

    Since Buildbot is written in Python, this means I have also had to learn Python. I am an old-time Perl hacker, so this exercise feels a bit like living in enemy territory ;-)

    Anyway, Python is often touted as a more "pretty" language. And in many ways it is. Still, it is not without its own gotchas. Think "scope rules". Obviously someone haven't been reading up on the subject before implementing things in Python, causing the language to behave stupidly (and certainly different from what one expects) in the following three cases that I hit during my Buildbot work.

    Embedded InnoDB 1.0.3.5325 RPM packages
    Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Shortly after I created the initial packages of embedded InnoDB on the OpenSUSE Build Service, Oracle/Innobase released an updated version (1.0.3.5325). In addition to many improvements and bug fixes, they slightly changed the versioning scheme to better indicate what version of the InnodDB plugin their code is based on (see Vasil's posting on the InnoDB Forums for more information).

    I've now updated my InnoDB packages on the Build Service to this version as well - please note that the naming scheme of the shared library

    Introduction

    StackOverflow is an amazing site for coding questions. It was created by Joel Spolsky of joelonsoftware.com, Jeff Atwood of codinghorror.com, and some other incredibly smart guys who truly care about user experience. I have been a total fan of SO since it went mainstream and it's now a borderline addiction (you can see my StackOverflow badge on the right sidebar).

    The Story

    Update 6/21/09: This server is currently under very heavy load (10-200), even with caching plugins enabled. Please bear with me as I try to
