    Rediscovering Programming with Python, Cocoa and PyObjC
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Use PyObjC to code Python under the Mac Cocoa framework, and MySQLdb to interface with MySQL! That’s the advice I got in reply to my recent blog. The discussions were so inspiring that I spent all time when out running yesterday daydreaming about how wonderful it will be to rediscover the aesthetics of programming and regain the control over my personal IT.

    So, to recap a bit of my thinking: Once a programmer, always a programmer. If you’ve learned how to code and to master your own IT life to a certain degree, you get used to it. At

    Developing small Mac apps with MySQL
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    What tool should I use to develop small MySQL end user applications on my Mac?

    Let me start by saying that I don’t know the answer, and I’m looking for your guidance. To make my question more specific, let me describe my background and what I want.

    I started my professional career in the 1980s as a developer using a tool called FOCUS by Information Builders. Terminology was different in those times. Focus was “a hierarchical database” and a “4GL“, which stood for “

    Others have done it, so why shouldn’t I do it, too? Well, usually that’s not my line of thought, but when today I read David Linsin's blog post about his stats I thought I might follow along.

    Overall stats

    The overall visits to my blog – and countless others with no doubt – display the workday/weekend jagged line one would expect. The summer months seem to be a little lower on average, but that’s ok, people deserve their vacations. Blue line is 2009, green line is 2008 for comparison.

    MySQL Workbench 5.2.6 Alpha Available
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hello folks, we have just released another alpha-version of MySQL Workbench 5.2. This release now contains another couple of Administration features like “Managing your user accounts”, “Viewing your log tables”, improved start/stop scripts for remote administration (administration of remote servers is working in the mac and linux version of MySQL Workbench 5.2.6 – the windows version needs yet a bit more tweaking on that park, so that will be available in next release). Please note that 5.2.5 was an internal only release.

    Head right over to our download pages and grab a copy to check out current functionality hands on. Please keep in mind, that this is still an alpha version – so do not use it on production data/servers! Also please note, MySQL Workbench

    MySQL Workbench 5.2.3 Alpha Available
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We’re happy to announce the availability of the next Alpha release of MySQL Workbench 5.2. There have been further improvements to the querying part and we added the foundations for the administration part (which will be onboard in the next alpha).
    On startup, MySQL Workbench 5.2 now doesn’t automatically create a new design-document anymore – thats for decreasing resource-usage when you only launch Workbench for running a few queries against your database. Also the fix to make Workbench work on Snow Leopard has been included in 5.2 now as well.

    Please download the program, take it for a test-drive and tell us what you think. But keep in mind, that this is still an alpha version – so be advised to not use it for production data! Also please note, MySQL Workbench files saved with version 5.2 cannot be opened with previous versions of our
    program.

    Log Buffer #160: a Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

    Blame it on MyISAM, says Mark Callaghan of High Availability MySQL, on considering sql_mode and type coercion. “I think that MyISAM has its place,” writes Mark. “It does fast table scans, but InnoDB is much faster on just about everything else. I am just not thrilled with the impact it has had on MySQL.”

    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We are proud to announce the next service release of MySQL Workbench 5.1.18. We have fixed another set of bugs and made some improvements you people have been asking for. We have optimized the layout of the Columns-section in our table-editor considering the ideas and exeriences you posted in feature requests, bug-reports and on the forums. Now it should provide a smoother more comfortable workflow.
    As already reported in previous blog-posts, this version is also compatible with Apples recently released version of OSX – 10.6 Snow Leopard.

    Must-have / essential applications on Mac OS X (10.6 - Snow Leopard)
    Employee +0 Vote Up -4Vote Down

    This is a bit of a side-step from directly MySQL related information .. but I found myself installing Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro today (which I use for pretty much everything) and every-time I do I have to try and remember all the applications I use. And I thought I would share them as I've found it useful you can pick up on things other people use. So here it is!

    I have marked the applications which cost money with a green dollar symbol ($) and hyperlinked all the project names for convenience.

    MySQL Workbench now works on Snow Leopard
    Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    So, it turned out fixing the Workbench crash on Snow Leopard wasn’t very hard. Took a little time to find out what was causing the crash but, once that was found, the fix was quick.

    The next releases of both branches — MySQL Workbench 5.1.18 this week and 5.2.3 alpha later on — will have proper support for Mac OS X 10.6

    For whoever might be interested, the bug was caused by what seems to be a slight change in how object/NSView copies are handed in Cocoa. NSCollectionView items are populated by copying a “prototype” object. It seems that somehow, duplication of that object included the fields of child objects as well in Leopard, but not in Snow Leopard. The object copies were incomplete and when they were accessed, it ended up attempting to create a C++ string out of nil.

    MySQL Workbench on Snow Leopard
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    As all you Mac users (and probably many non-Macies) know Apple released Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) recently, even though this release was announced for September previously. Since a large part of the MySQL Workbench user base works on OS X it was clear that many of you will test Workbench on the new OS. However, so far we haven’t had the opportunity to do the same (too busy fixing bugs on released OSes) and hence we did not know about incompatibility problems there.

    In the meantime several users did tests and reported us a crash on startup of the application, which means you cannot use MySQL Workbench on Snow Leopard for the time being. We are currently preparing build, test and developer machines with it and will hand out a fixed WB release as soon as possible. So, please stay patient. It’s only a matter of days.

    MySQL Workbench 5.2.1 Alpha Available
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    We’re proud to announce the availability of the 2nd alpha-version of MSQL Workbench 5.2. As you may already know, this is the youngest member of the workbench-family and also the version that adds another role - the one of the database-querying-tool - to the application. There have been major enhancements - not only to the querying part - since we released the first alpha version. Please keep in mind that this is still an alpha version and it’s not recommended for use in a production environment. While most parts of the final application are already in place there are still a few things left to implement or details subject to change. Please download the program, take it for a test-drive and tell us what you think.

    Have you ever looked at the source code of MySQL Workbench? There are quite some hidden gems there, e.g. the OpenGL canvas and our latest addtion: a new UI port of the famous open source edit control Scintilla. This port allows us to use this fantastic editor control natively on Mac OS X Leopard as a Cocoa framework.

    In fact, we are using Scintilla for a long time already, mainly on Windows. It allows us to give you a powerful editor interface for SQL code. This includes features like syntax highlighting, text markers (e.g. for marking syntax errors), code folding, code completion and many more. However, so far we could not use it on OS X. There is a Carbon port

    MySQL Workbench 5.2.0 ALPHA
    Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    The MySQL Workbench team would like to announce the availability of the first Alpha release of MySQL Workbench 5.2.

    The major new feature in MySQL Workbench 5.2 is the SQL IDE, which offers the ability to edit and execute queries on MySQL servers. The new SQL query editor, based on the Open Source Scintilla text editor component, offers full syntax highlighting and other advanced editing features. The SQL editor was also extended to perform live syntax checking, detecting and indicating any syntax errors in your SQL code even before executing them. The IDE also provides ability to browse and edit the contents of individual table rows.

    Note, however, that as this is a development version, there are known and unknown issues that might prevent the smooth use of the application. Backup your models often and before opening them with this version as the file

    MySQL Workbench Mac support has been requested from our community for a very long time. We got several emails and comments on the web and IRC channel that Workbench is the only tool why a lot of people are still running a VMware Fusion or Parallels session with Windows.

    Therefore we are very happy about the recent release of WB 5.1 Beta1 which is the first release that is available on our three main platforms, Windows, Mac & Linux.

    Those who have been giving MySQL Workbench 5.1 Beta1 on Mac OS X a try may have noticed the huge speed gain, compared to the Windows version, especially when working with bigger models. We even got complaints why we have “slowed down” the Windows version but this is simply due to the GUI hardware acceleration support available on the Mac, as well as on Linux
