I love the new NoSQL systems: more choices! After years of RDBMS dominance there are hundrets of NoSQL systems offering a wide range of data models, data distribution strategies and interfaces. Polyglot persistence describes the market change. I am most fascinated by document stores: nested data and data distribution go hand-in-hand. Nested data, finally. And, for those who like it: schemaless or even schemafree. Maybe something to learn for MySQL? But their search capabilities… A word or two on SQL (SELECT … FROM … WHERE – SFW) and nested data.
The classical relational data model requests all data to be in[Read more...]
In prior years a daily update from Open World was possible, but this year my schedule was too full to support it. This is my compendium of thoughts about MySQL Connect, JavaOne, and Open World 2012.
MySQL Connect was great – good sessions re-enforcing the positive investments Oracle is making in the product. I’ll leave to others to qualify changes in what elements of technology are opened or closed along the road to a better MySQL. The announcement of Connector/Python 1.0 GA on Saturday was great news and as a community we owe a lot to Greet Vanderkelen.[Read more...]
Infor announced this week, that they will provide open source database alternatives to some of their products. MariaDB has been chosen, tested, and certified by Infor to be the open source database of choice (together with MySQL) for the Infor LN and ION products. Infor LN is Infor’s flagship ERP and is sometimes better known by its former name, Baan. It has 25 years of manufacturing know-how built into it and is used by more than 5,000 companies worldwide in a wide range of industries. These include automotive, industrial equipment and machinery, high tech and electronics, and aerospace and defense. This is a big stamp of approval that even the most critical systems can be run on MariaDB.
In other news, there are currently several really interesting paths coming together into some important[Read more...]
Recent Tips and News on Java, Java EE 6, GlassFish & more :
• JSON to Java with JDK6 (Julien)
• What does the future hold for OSGi without leader Peter Kriens? (JAXenter)
• JavaCloudGuy: Glassfish (Java EE 6) is now available as option in #cumulogic (Twitter)
• JAXB and Joda-Time: Dates and Times (Blaise)
Currently a very early version of course, but it’s there in trunk if you want to play with it. Just have libcurl and libevent installed and you can submit queries via HTTP and JSON. Of course, the next steps are getting a true non-sql interface going and seeing how people go with it.
Persistence Smoothie: Blending NoSQL and SQL – see user feedback and comments at http://joind.in/talk/view/1332.
Michael Bleigh from Intridea, high-end Ruby and Ruby on Rails consultants, build apps from start to finish, making it scalable. He’s written a lot of stuff, available at http://github.com/intridea. @mbleigh on twitter
NoSQL is a new way to think about persistence. Most NoSQL systems are not ACID compliant (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability).
Generally, most NoSQL systems have:
NoSQL tries to scale (more) simply, it is starting to go[Read more...]
I’ve been using a lot of RESTful services these days and have been waiting for a good book that is dedicated to the topic. I recently received a copy of ‘RESTful PHP Web Services’, which does a successful job of outlining proven concepts in current web technology. If you want to learn the methods for creating and consuming RESTful services then you will find many examples in this book. From the architectural plans to well thought out code samples, the book covers a lot of ground in a relatively quick read.
The first chapter gives the reader a quick introduction to RESTful services and the most common PHP frameworks in use at the time of writing. I particularly enjoyed the section on the Zend framework due to[Read more...]
