As the GPL fades
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’re continuing to see signs that the dominant GPL open source license may be fading from favor among commercial open source software players. The latest move away from the GPL comes from content management software vendor Alfresco, which is moving to the LGPL after originally releasing its code under the GPL three years ago. The reasoning for the shift, according to Alfresco CEO John Newton, is the company sees greater opportunity beyond being a software application, particularly given the emergence of the Content Management Interoperability Services standard. Alfresco won mostly praise for its move, and it does make sense given where open source is going these days.

Silent Install Instructions
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This entry provides instructions for “silently” installing MySQL on a Microsoft Windows server.  I use the term “silent install” to describe the method of passing parameters to the Microsoft Installation Package (MSI) to bypass installation screens.  This allows you to deploy MySQL with your application and to install MySQL without end-user intervention.  The developer can define the install location, the appropriate storage engines, the root password and the server configuration.

Most application developers use some sort of software for creating an application installer.  Common tools include Install Shield, Wise Installation, InstallBuilder and Windows Installer.  These installation software tools can also be used to install MySQL by launching the MySQL MSI and the MySQL Instance configuration utility ( MySQLInstanceConfig.exe ) from the

Thoughts about Dual-licensing Open Source software
+8 Vote Up -5Vote Down

History


The first example of dual-licensing was probably Ghostscript, which Peter Deutsch licensed first under the GPL and later under the Aladdin Free Public License, but also under a proprietary license.

Inspired by his idea, David Axmark and I released MySQL under similar dual-licensing terms. Dual licensing has since become one of the most common and popular ways to create profit centers around Open Source/Free Software, in addition to support and services around the product.

To be able to bootstrap MySQL Ab, we originally had a license that allowed free usage, but a "pay-for" license if you used MYSQL for commercial usage or on the Windows platform. In 2000 we changed the free license to GPL, mostly to avoid having to explain our own license to everyone.

The basic

MySQL Management Plug-in and Grid Control Extensibility at Oracle Open World 2008?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In case you are attending Oracle Open World 2008, the biggest Oracle conference in the world, and interested in either (or both) MySQL or Oracle Enterprise Manager Extensibility — I posted a proposal for a new presentation:

Extending Oracle Enterprise Manager by Example — Creating MySQL Management Plug-In

I’ve started looking into Oracle extensibility several years ago and since then I’ve seen lots of improvements in Extensibility Guide and many new plug-ins have seen the light of the day. However, creating a new plug-in is still considered to be something special and not available to mere mortals.

MySQL plug-in 1.1 for Oracle 10g Grid Control
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It’s been a while since the MySQL Management Plug-in 0.42 was released. Since then, I quietly updated it to version 1.0. The changes were very few; the biggest news was that the plug-in was certified by Oracle and added to OTN Oracle 10g Grid Control Extensions Exchange (see at the bottom).

I think the next version is due, as a few people have come back to me with some issues. The biggest was compatibility with Windows. Since I used the command line MySQL client, *nix and Windows shell incompatibilities were a major headache to solve, and I still couldn’t make it work reliably. I wanted to use DBI and DBD:MySQL, but it required installing and compiling Perl

MySQL Plug-in for Oracle Grid Control Announced, Released
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hello everyone,

Reading PlanetMySQL today, I discovered that Alex Gorbachev’s announcement that he has released the first public beta of his Oracle Grid Control plugin for MySQL was not aggregated! This is probably because Alex is primarily working on our Oracle space and so his feed isn’t on planet.

This plugin has been under development since 2006 and this is a major achievement.

Knowing that my feed is aggregated, and not willing to let this news and this amazing work go unnoticed by the MySQL community during the conference (I am at MySQLConf listening to Amazon.com’s CTO speak right now!)

In any event, if you missed them

It has finally happened! The first public release of the MySQL plug-in for Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control is out.

It’s been a while since I first started to work on this, first as part of the Grid Control Extensibility article that I wrote for IOUG SELECT Magazine in 2006 (thanks to John Kanagaraj for encouraging me to write it), and then later as part of a demo for my

?Gatekeepers of the Datacenter? vs. Freedom of choice in IT
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve written in the past about how enterprise management vendors can act as “Gatekeepers of the Datacenter” by virtue of what technologies they do or don’t support as part of their management solutions. This rather lame dynamic is a big part of the reason why a lot of otherwise great technologies dont make it all the way into the traditional enterprise.

The problem gets further compounded when one of these “Gatekeepers” is also a platform or stack vendor. See, it’s hard to resist the temptation of delivering the absolute best management for IBM products from a Tivoli solution while shortchanging non-IBM ones. Or, to lay this on one of the aspiring members of the big 4… how about getting support for SQL Server on Oracle’s Enterprise Manager. Hmmm… I’m gonna guess it sucks
