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

Dueling Conferences and the Art of Hyperbole
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last week someone sent me an article about the “dueling” MySQL conferences from IOUG and O’Reilly. On the one hand, I find it really entertaining that there’s a perception that, three years ago, when the Sun acquisition wasn’t even on the radar, we purposefully scheduled our conferences against each other in anticipation of this moment. If we had a crystal ball or the ability to see the future that well, I would have picked better lottery numbers three weeks ago.

The sad part is all the focus is placed on a hypothetical negative, and it overshadows the real point of the article – that a collection of MySQL community supporters are pooling their time and effort to make sure the community stays strong. I’m lucky enough to

The MySQL Community meets the Independent Oracle Users Group

After the MySQL Conference, while most of my European colleagues were busy with volcanic disruptions and seeking alternative routes to the Old Continent, I headed to Las Vegas, to attend Collaborate10 a conference different from the ones I have been used so far.

Collaborate10 is the conference of the Oracle Users Groups. I had been asked to participate with a few talks on MySQL, and I was curious of meeting this for me new organization. I prepared three talks, one introduction to MySQL and two advanced ones, and thus equipped I ventured along the

Data Backup and Recovery for MySQL - a MySQL Time Machine is Born.
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Sure, you've heard it before: [some company's logo] has a new MySQL backup tool that promises to solve all of your data recovery needs. The good news is most of these tools work pretty well. However, they tend to suffer from a similar set of limitations. Most require sophisticated infrastructures or complex setup and maintenance and can become a resource drain for some organizations. You're probably wondering, "Why can't someone build a fully automated MySQL backup solution that you can just turn on and forget?"

I am happy to say that the MySQL Developers at Sun are doing just that. In fact, a prototype will be demonstrated at the 2009 MySQL Users' Conference that will show the feasibility of a fully automated MySQL backup and recovery tool. It's being called the MySQL Time Machine and (with all due respect to all vendors with products of similar names) it allows you to

Backing up permissions for individual databases
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Sometimes, you want to backup individual databases in MySQL to move to a different server. This part is easy using mysqldump:

shell> mysqldump -u root -p --databases db1 db2 ... > backup.sql

The problem is, what happens when you want to backup the permissions associated with these databases? Well, here are a few queries to help you out.

-- Grab the users with global permissions, 
-- with permissions to the databases you want, 
-- and tables/stored procedures in it.
mysql> SELECT u.* INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/user.txt'
	FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"' ESCAPED BY '\\'
	LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'
	FROM
		mysql.user u
	WHERE
		u.Select_priv='Y'
	UNION
	SELECT u.*
	FROM

	WHERE

The 2008 MySQL Users' Conference - an Engineer's Perspective
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This past week was the annual MySQL Users’ Conference. It was my fourth time attending the conference, my second as a MySQL-er, and my first as a Sun employee.

The conference was very well attended with many more people than last year. Overall, I’d say it was a great success.

I work on the Backup project for MySQL and I must say it was a very strange experience being in the spotlight of so much controversy concerning the announcement made about making some backup features enterprise only releases.

While there was a lot of blogging expressing the general distaste for the suggestion of making some features of backup enterprise only (as opposed to free), most of these comments seemed to come from a relatively small number of people.
