Why Oracle’s donation of OpenOffice disappoints
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

While Oracle deserves some praise for its donation of OpenOffice.org code to the Apache Foundation, it is disappointing again to see a legitimate open source market contender that has been marginalized by miscommunication and mismanagement of the project by a large vendor.

OpenOffice.org, warts and all, was probably the most significant competition for Microsoft Office for years and in many ways demonstrated the advantages of open source, helping usher in wider use of it, as well as greater usability. OO.o was in fact my reason for originally investigating and moving to open source software more than a decade ago. Regardless of past mismanagement of community and technology, that competitive factor has been diminished greatly since Oracle took ownership of

Java mutiny in the making
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Apache Software Foundation’s latest statement on the Java Community Process highlights continued dissatisfaction and dissent from Oracle’s stewardship and involvement in open source software.

This comes after some ups and downs for Oracle and its oversight of Java and other open source software that was previously under the auspices of Sun Microsystems. Oracle started off on a rough path when it sued Google over its implementation of Java in Android without preemptively or clearly stating that it was not attacking open source. At about the same time, it let OpenSolaris die a slow, somewhat confusing

Judgment day for open source at Oracle
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There are signals of continued problems and dysfunction — namely lack of support, organization and communication — in the OpenSolaris community. This follows on a deterioration of the OS leadership and support since Oracle bought Sun Microsystems, including the elimination of OpenSolaris CDs, one of the things that made the open source version of Solaris more like Linux.

We had speculated on the fate of Sun open source software under Oracle and while we acknowledged Oracle’s participation in, contribution and commitment to and opportunity from open source software, we

    How to get colored output from ‘ls’ on Solaris10
    +0 Vote Up -3Vote Down

    For all of those linux users out there that have moved over to, or tried out, Solaris10 or OpenSolaris because they heard the tales of how MySQL is faster on Solaris… or perhaps you wanted to learn how to use Sol10 for the great features of Zones or the ZFS filesystem? Regardless of why you’re on it you are probably wondering why Linux has colored output of filenames and directories but Solaris does not. The question of ‘why?’ isn’t important, but how to enable colors is. It’s very simple, and here’s how I fixed it. This is a result of digging through multiple semi-related links on Google.

    How to get your product bundled with Linux distributions
    Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I recently received a question from Robin Schumacher at Calpont, the makers of the InfiniDB analytics database engine for MySQL: "How would you recommend we try and get bundled in with the various Linux distros?"

    Since this question has come up several times before, I thought it might make sense to blog about my take on this.

    First of all, please note that there is a difference between "being part of the core distribution" and "being available from a distributor's package repository". The latter one is relatively easy, the former can be hard, as you need to convince the distributor that your application is worth devoting engineering resources to maintain and support your application as part of their product. It's also a space

    The aims of this kind of blog post is simple – I want to help keep the masses informed as to what’s happening with MariaDB, as a whole. There is a community growing, and MariaDB is a community project, not necessarily a Monty Program Ab baby (and we’re clear on this distinction: think of it like Canonical/Ubuntu). So, think of it as such that I’m sharing the good news, and summarising what’s been happening, to save you time.

    One of MariaDB’s goals is that it should be easily available for download. While we provide binaries and source at

    HowTo: Using Virtualization to Secure MySQL in a Chrooted Environment
    Employee +0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    Chrooted environments are known to greatly improve system and application security by providing them with a higher degree of isolation. The objective is to separate as much as possible from other executables and resources the runtime environment of an application so that if a hacker get access to it,the rest of the system is not compromised. This technic is commonly used with MySQL.

    Traditionally, the chrooting applies at the file system level, by creating a separated and minimal operating system disk-image.  The operation consists in creating a set of directories (such a /chroot/etc, /chroot/tmp, /chroot/var/tmp, /chroot/usr/local/mysql etc.) and duplicate a minimal number of binary and configuration files into this new directory tree. After setting the right permissions on the new directories, the

    VirtualBox Factory: HowTo Automate VBox Provisioning in a Cloud
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    For many years now, Sun provides ISVs with on-line access to Solaris, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Java, Netbeans, compilers, and much more.  This service is named EZQual and is used to evaluate Sun software,  and port and test applications on the Sun platform. To satisfy the demand we must be able to host many ISVs on a single system so we decided from scratch that the service would be implemented using virtualization, just like a cloud. Also, to provide a better user experience we decided to offer a remote desktop feature that, in conjunction with the virtualiztion, really offers what is known as a virtual desktop.

    Shooting with Crossbows into Zones

    Ok, so this site (and some other stuff) is now running on OpenSolaris. The previous previous article was mostly a test entry for me to see whether the DNS update was through but as some people wonder why I'm using this system that "fails while trying to copy Linux" I decided to discuss some of the reasons in more detail.

    Some people already know that my main system meanwhile runs OpenSolaris. The reason there is DTrace - a great way to see what the system, from the kernel, over userspaces programs, into a VM like the JVM or PHP's Zend VM, ... is doing which is a big help while debugging and developing applications. Even though DTrace is meant to do such analysis on
