MySQL Utilities meets the world’s ugliest table

In case you missed it, MySQL Utilities 1.3.0 (alpha) was released last week.  MySQL Utilities is a component of MySQL Workbench, but it’s been broken out into a separate download allowing command-line users access unencumbered by a pretty GUI interface.  Plus, it has some new features – most importantly to me, a utility (mysqlfrm) which can read .FRM files and produce CREATE TABLE statements as a result.  This will be very useful for recovery processes, in conjunction with InnoDB transportable tablespaces in situations where the InnoDB system tablespace is corrupted, and you don’t know the exact table definition.

MySQL Utilities: The New .frm Reader Utility

Have you ever wondered what was in those .frm files littered throughout your data directory? Better still, have you encountered a situation where your data is either missing (was deleted) or damaged and all you have is the .frm files but don't know the structure of the table? Well, wonder no more!

The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce the newest utility - the .frm reader (mysqlfrm). This utility is designed to read .frm files and produce a facsimile of the CREATE statement for the table or view.

That's Impossible! How Can That Work?
It works by making a copy of the .frm file(s) and launching a new, read-only instance of your existing server. The server need not be running but you are required to provide an open port for the new instance with the --port option.

The utility will launch the cloned server without reading your configuration file (--no-defaults). The utility also makes some …

Introducing MySQL Utilities release-1.3.0

The MySQL Utilities Team is pleased to announce a major advancement of MySQL Utilities. It is now available as a separate download!

That's right. If you want to use MySQL Utilities without installing MySQL Workbench, you can do that now.

The Utilities release-1.3.0 has been built for Windows Installer, RPM archive, and .tar/.zip. We have also made downloads for source only if you want to use Utilities to develop your own utilities or install the product in custom location. We plan to add other repositories in the future.

Is that it? Well, not quite. We have also included a new utility - the .frm Reader. See the blog, "New Utility: .frm Reader" for more information.

If you'd like to try out the new download, visit the MySQL Workbench download page:

Using MySQL for Excel

I recently had a need to import a bunch of data into MySQL, and for reasons I won’t get into here, LOAD DATA INFILE wasn’t working for me.  I was in a hurry to get the data into MySQL so that I could filter it, and didn’t have time to work through my LOAD DATA INFILE issues.  Looking around for another way to quickly get my tab-delimited data into MySQL quickly, I decided to use the MySQL for Excel plugin.  If you haven’t seen this yet, and you have Excel, it might be worth your while.

In my case, I was able to quickly copy and paste the tab-delimited text file into an Excel spreadsheet, connect MySQL for Excel to the MySQL database and append the data to the existing table.  You’ll need to have Excel, MySQL and the MySQL for Excel plugin.  The latter two can be installed from a single download using the …

New in MySQL Utilities release-1.1.0

New in MySQL Workbench 5.2.44 is the latest release of MySQL Utilities 1.1.0. This release contains a new utility called the MySQL Utilities Users' Console (mysqluc).

The MySQL Utilities Users' Console is designed to make using the utilities easier. While it is not a new utility in the sense it doesn't provide any new functionlity for managing MySQL servers or data, it does provide a unique shell environment with command completion, help for each utility, user defined variables, and type completion for options.

That's right, you no longer have to type out the entire name of the utility. For example, you can type mysqldbe and press the TAB key and it will complete the command as mysqldbexport. Don't remember the name of a database utility you want to use? That's no problem either - just type mysqldb and press TAB twice. The console will list all of the utilities that start with mysqldb.

The same is true …

MySQL Utilities Frequently Asked Questions

Momentum for MySQL Utilities continues to build.  I hosted a webinar recently about MySQL Utilities (available on-demand from the link below), which generated a lot of interest and some good questions.

http://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=lobby.jsp&eventid=448952&sessionid=1&key=7E741ED049DFBF49D10C90A2B62E410F&eventuserid=63530507

With so many questions and ideas coming in I decided to create a blog of FAQs. I plan to add these to the MySQL documentation as well.  Keep your ideas and questions coming!

I hope you find these questions enlightening. I have grouped them for easier reading. You can find the MySQL Utilities documentation using the link below.

Compare and Synchronize Databases with MySQL Utilities

The mysqldiff and mysqldbcompare utilities were designed to produce a difference report for objects and in the case of mysqldbcompare the data. Thus, you can compare two databases and produce a report of the differences in both object definitions and data rows. 

While that may be very useful, would it not be much more useful to have the ability to produce SQL commands to transform databases? Wait no longer! The latest release of MySQL Utilities has added the ability to generate SQL transformation statements by both the mysqldiff and mysqldbcompare utilities. 

To generate SQL transformations in either utility, simply use the --sql option to tell the utility to produce the statements.

Object Transformations with mysqldiff

If you would like to compare the schema of two databases (the objects and their definitions), mysqldiff can do that for you and produce a difference report …
