Testing MySQL repository packages: how we make sure they work for you
Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Around nine months ago, we launched the MySQL yum repositories for Enterprise Linux and Fedora, followed by apt repos for Debian and Ubuntu back in May. We’re extremely happy that the repos have proved to be a big hit with the community: the monthly number of downloads hit 100K recently and it is still growing […]
Repos and Distros: Upstream and Downstream
Employee_Team +6 Vote Up -0Vote Down
When we launched the official MySQL repos back in October, we wanted to achieve a number of things: First, we closed a gaping hole in our distribution on Linux. Some Linux distros do not ship all the MySQL products, and not everyone is able to or always wants to use the distro packages. And the […]
MariaDB: Improve Security with Two-Step Verification
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this primer I will show how to improve the security of your MariaDB installation by using two-step verification and how to use it from your Windows GUI client.

Let’s suppose you have your data in MariaDB, installed, say, on Ubuntu. And your users connect to it to run ad hoc queries, using some sort of a Windows GUI client. You don’t want them to write the access password on post-it notes or have it auto-entered by the client. And you don’t want anyone see the password when one of the salespersons connects to the mother ship from his laptop in the Internet café. So you decide to use the two-step verification, just like Google does, to secure the access to the data.

If you don’t know what a “two-step verification” is, see, for example, this introductory

OLX and MariaDB
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

OLX, a free classifieds site, is serving up 40 million pages a day using MariaDB. Not an insignificant task.

There’s a nice write-up in the MariaDB knowledgebase with particulars. In short, the 5.2 series of MariaDB and some of the unique features of the project have made a migration easy and valuable.

It’s nice to hear such stories. Both because we like interesting sites and projects, as well as our natural interest in larger scale or larger visibility deployments. Got a story to share? Please create a KB entry, or e-mail the community team.

Get social and healthy with GlassFish
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Two new stories have been published this week and both of them use GlassFish 3.1 in production. If you haven't seen them before, "Stories" is a blog with production use of GlassFish by small, medium, and large users with user questionnaires describing their experience with the rest of the community.

The first story is PointDebate, a "social network company that stir up, engage and give voice to most diverse opinions". They've been following pretty closely all the recent updates of GlassFish and now run the latest 3.1 version (only a month after it was released). They application is built using Java EE 6 and JSF in particular with RichFaces. The full architecture includes MySQL as well as EHCache and uses JMS to "decouple operations" (an somewhat underutilized architectural

Bzr hacks and tricks: diff -p
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I don’t know about you, but I like diff -p [1].  Having used it for years, I can read these diffs like a text, while diffs without -p often need to have the original file opened side by side, just to get enough of the context.

Loving diff -p so much, I want to see it everywhere (evil laughter). Alas, in bzr only diff command can easily use -p, just run it as bzr diff --diff-options=-p or store it as an alias in the ~/.bazaar/bazaar.conf.

Actually, for an alias there is a better, although more verbose, alternative:

[ALIASES]
diff = "diff --diff-options='-F ^[[:alpha:]$_].*[^:]$'"

Unlike simple -p it will not think that a word ending with a semicolon (like a label or, say,

Kajona is running with MariaDB
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Based on small talk with Stefan Idler and Jakob Schröter at OpenRheinRuhr2010, Kajona CMS now officially works with MariaDB. They tested MariaDB and verified that it was a drop-in-replacement for MySQL without any modifications needed on their side. We are of course happy to hear about all real-life success stories!

You can find more about Kajona here.

If your project or product also supports MariaDB, then please tell us about it! You can find our growing list of supported software on our Knowledgebase.

Via SpamExperts:

SpamExperts has their own anti-spam filtering cloud which is provided as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. In addition they have an e-mail security product which they install, update and monitor on-site. Most of SpamExperts’ anti-spam technology has been developed in-house and makes extensive use of the MySQL database. All clients contribute in real-time to their filtering effectiveness, so they have many different data flows that are handled by MySQL. Replication is used to synchronize the data between the systems in a cluster and to push data feeds in real-time. The SaaS cloud is replicated

GlassFish scales and configures very quickly for Micello - the "indoor Google Maps" company
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
We all (at least majority of us) use some sort of maps to reach from one destination, say home, to another destination, say a shopping mall or a convention center. But once you've reached the mall then you switch to a different set of tools to navigate that is typically either a paper flyer or sign boards within the mall. Micello.com fills that gaps by providing maps for any indoor locations like airport, shopping malls, convention centers, retail centers, and college campus.


Their application is built using "scalable stack" of GlassFish and MySQL, uses RESTful Web services, and has given them a 99.9% uptime in the past few months - no wonder its used to create

Three JRuby on GlassFish Deployment Stories: Kenai, LinkedIn and JotBot
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -3Vote Down

Arun has added three new, JRuby-based entries to our Adoption Stories. The first story is about Kenai, and is a model story for GlassFish Portfolio: Apache HTTPD Server, Memcached, MySQL, JRuby and GlassFish Server (it is also a bit recursive, as JRuby lives on Kenai).

The other two stories are about LinkedIn Polls and JotBot. JotBot is unusual in that JRuby is used on both client and server side.

JavaEE and Rails Drive our Latest GlassFish Stories: MidwifeMate and Involver
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Two more adoption stories; they both use GFv2 and MySQL Server, but while one is a traditional Java EE story, the other is a Rails App ported from Mongrel.

MidwifeMate is a pretty traditional GlassFish adoption: they liked the JavaEE compliance, the ease of use of GlassFish and the multi-platform support.

The MidwifeMate application spans the web tier (JSF/Facelets), EJBs and JPA. They use Hibernate talking to a MySQL Server (http://mysql.com) and develop on Eclipse using the

Why Ruby (and Rails) is Awesome
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I was invited to give a short introduction to Ruby on Rails at Tech Meetup in Edinburgh a couple of days ago. I’d been racking my brain for days on what to talk about — 15 minutes is too short for me to give a meaningful introduction to Rails — and eventually settled on telling a few stories.

The slides don’t make much sense on their own, so I’ve included the “script” of what I talked about too. I deviated quite a bit from the script as I got into it, so hopefully I should be able to provide audio (or, dread the thought, maybe even video) of the talk in due course.

Intro

I’m Graeme. I’m the Managing Director of Rubaidh Ltd, and have been developing Ruby on Rails applications professionally for 3 years now.

Tell Me How The Spark Caught Flame

I want you to tell me the story of how you got started with the Net.

Tell me how your passion was sparked and why it keeps coming to full flame.

Tell me why the Net matters to you, even after all of the long days, short nights and wrecked weekends.

I’ve been writing my story because I need to understand why I care deeply for what the Net is and what it means.

I want to read your story for the same reason.

Don’t hold out on me now. I can see your data trails in my server logs: a few hundred of you trudging in from RSS subscriptions, the PHP, Mozilla and MySQL planets, Boris’

New Certification Exams , 'gifts' question, and your success story
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
One of the frustrations of of working in Certification is that so little time is spent creating exam questions. There are million other things from expense reports to mandatory training that need to be take care of before delving back into things like InnoDB buffer pools or scaling Falcon databases. The good news is that new exam questions are ready for the next generation of DBA Certification and I will soon be begging the folks who helped me in the past for one last look before we shrink wrap the exams.


I attended the CEdMA Conference this week and was able to network with other certification folks. One of the items of discussion was what goes into a certification package. In tight economic times, training and certification departments need to cut costs. Many certification entities are simply sending out PDF certificates via email. Others are
