Vote for Maria’s new name
+2 Vote Up -9Vote Down

Remember the idea behind renaming Maria, the storage engine? People regularly get confused with Maria the storage engine, and MariaDB the database. We got a whole lot of good names, and here’s a short-listed amount of names (short-listed by Monty Program employees down to about 15), and now its up to YOU to help us choose what the new name should be. Quick, go take the survey.

The winner will be announced on the first day of OSCON on July 19 2010. The winner walks away with a

Cracking the Tokutek contest with MySQL 5.1
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Hello, blog! Long time without posting. Here I am again.
My attention was caught a few days ago by a contest posted by Tokutek.
This is a company that makes a proprietary engine for MySQL. In their contest, they claim that it takes 20 days to insert 1 billion records into a InnoDB table, and that MyISAM is not even up to the task. In their example, InnoDB inserts 404 rows per second and MyISAM died after a few days of inserting 93 rows per second.
It looks farfetched to me. Surely you can do better than that.
Now, I don't have a quad 3.16Ghz Xeon server with 16GB RAM available like the one used by Tokutek, and so I tried with a modest quad 2.7Ghz AMD, 8GB RAM server. The problem is mostly the same. Once your index becomes bigger than the available

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Have you ever heard about VoiceXML? It’s a W3C standart that allows you to build web pages that are accessed by voice! It’s very used for services like travel tickets selling, hotel reservation, bank account information and so on. In this post, we’ll give you a general view of how to make a basic hotel reservation
application with VoiceXML and how to run it using Glassfish and MySQL.

First of all, for VoiceXML applications, we need a voice gateway. We used the Voxeo, it’s free and provides you with phone numbers that you can call for free using Skype. All you need to do is create a free account in Voxeo and register your application by informing it’s URL. After registering you’ll receive the unique

Students: OpenSolaris, NetBeans blogging contest
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As some of you would have recently noticed, I’ve started playing around (I can’t really say using, seeing that its still not a daily basis kind of thing for me yet) with OpenSolaris and NetBeans. Now, Sun is encouraging students to use, review, and blog about these two great products - check out the student reviews contests.

If you’ve not tried OpenSolaris 2008.05, you should probably give it a twirl. Sure, I’ve not installed it on bare metal hardware yet (I’ve been travelling so much, I’m not anywhere near machines), but it works fine inside VirtualBox. NetBeans is great if you’re writing Java, Ruby,
