MySQL for Excel new features (1.2.0): Auto refresh Import Data, Export Data and Append Data dialogs
Employee +0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

This post is about one of the new features included in the latest MySQL for Excel release to date (1.2.0) which can be Installed directly from our MySQL Installer.

Since the first release you were allowed to Import and Append data from Excel to a MySQL database, and also to import data from the MySQL database to an Excel Worksheet.
All these windows handle small previews of the data you were working with, and some settings about how the data should be treated can be found by clicking the Advanced Options button on them.

The problem many users found was that sometimes when they changed these options, the small previews did not reflected the changes being made on them, and they had to close and reopen the windows to see if their changes were what they actually wanted or how the data was being treated with

MySQL Support is Hiring!
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

My old team here at Oracle looking for talented, experienced MySQL experts to join the amazing MySQL Support Team.  I was lucky enough to join this great group of people over seven years ago, and while my responsibilities have shifted to other areas with the MySQL team at Oracle, I still join the team’s chat channel daily (where they’ve revoked my vowel and address me as “t*dd” to highlight my treachery in leaving the team).   I don’t know that it’s possible to find a better group of colleagues to work with than can be found in the MySQL Support Team.

The work itself is exciting – if you like solving problems, this is an incredible job.  I’m not talking about finding and quoting applicable sections of the MySQL reference manual.  I’m talking about owning customer problems like they are your own, taking the time to

In many parts of the MySQL world, whether you have users, developers or administrators of MySQL, the season holidays are for family, relax, prayers, travel, or they are simply a moment where you can enjoy what you like or care most about.

For me, this time is dedicated to my family, but also to deeper thoughts around the strategies to adopt in short and long term. My work nowadays, as the work of many others, is ruled by quick decisions, by the "time to market” - whatever “market" means in a specific context. Decisions must be made in meetings that are time-boxed in one hour or even less. In the end, you accumulate so much work and high priority tasks that you do not have enough time to prepare the topics adequately.

I thought I could summarise my thoughts for the past year and for the near future, from a technical and from a business perspective.

Excel PowerPivot & DAX

I’ve worked with every release of Microsoft Excel, and I know it takes effort to keep up to date with certain releases. Clearly, the Data Analysis eXpression (DAX) Language introduced in Excel 2010 went unnoticed by many, which was sad. DAX is truly a powerful extension to the analytical and modeling approaches in Microsoft Excel.

MongoDB in 2013 -- A Year in Review

It's again that time of the year. Analysts are spending oceans of words to predict the future, companies are making plans for the next year and people are resting and enjoying the break with their families.

how MySQL engineering broke the backups
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL has exceptional track of record by introducing minor fixes that cause major breakages. Though usually I could blame naiveté of engineers, who did not really ever have to deal with production implications, but lately I can start sensing various business implications against open-source offerings.

As an original author of mydumper I really cannot get out of my mind that 5.5 and 5.6 metadata locking changes are there to screw with anyone who is building a backup solution using stable snapshot views of MySQL (for example, mysqldump –single-transaction, the golden standard of backing things up in MySQL world).

As seen in a bug #71017 (palindrome!) filed by my esteemed colleague Eric, newly

MEB integration with Workbench
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The latest versions of MySQL Workbench starting from version 6 have the capability to integrate with MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB).

Though all the functionality of MEB is not supported, it is still a great tool to begin your backup and get your backup setup in minutes. Workbench also provides the additional capability to be able to schedule your backups.

The sections below illustrate the setup and usage of the Workbench UI to be able to setup and execute backup using MEB.

This is a quick start guide to setup, make a backup and do a recovery using MySQL Workbench and MEB.

The installation of WB and MEB is not discussed; it should be a simple automated install for both packages.

MySQL Synonym?

Somebody asked how to create a SYNONYM in MySQL, which is interesting because MySQL doesn’t support synonyms. I thought the prior entry explained how to do it, but here’s a new post. However, you can create a view in one database that relies on a table in another database.

The following SQL statements create two databases and grant appropriate privileges to the student as the root superuser:

/* Create two databases. */

Economist says that Physics suggest that storms will get worse as the planet warms. Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines, bush-fires in Australia, floods in China, and extreme unpredictable weather across the planet is a sober reminder. Good news is that technology and awareness is rising, and so is the data. Database technologies are playing their part to intelligently store that data and enabling the stakeholders to analyze and get meaningful results to predict and counter the extreme conditions.

Why the name with 2c.
The first challenge before you think of blogging is to convice yourself that maybe your views will have some value for a reader. The second is to find a name of the blog. Its not that I am fully convinced of the former but there are some things that need to be written and since the need is mine the fulfillment of the need should also come from me.

The name is to ensure to keep my words humble and respect views which may differ from mine; maybe conflicting and still right. Different people have differing views and this blog is just one view as seen
