Ultimate Guide: Derived Queries with Spring Data JPA

The post Ultimate Guide: Derived Queries with Spring Data JPA appeared first on Thoughts on Java.

All applications need to execute queries to retrieve data from their database. With JPA and Hibernate, you can write JPQL, native SQL queries or Criteria Queries and you can use all of them with Spring Data JPA. In most cases, Spring Data just makes it a little bit easier.

Spring Data JPA acts as a layer on top of JPA, and it offers you 2 ways to define your query:

  1. You can let Spring Data JPA derive the query from the name of a method in your repository.
  2. You can define your own …

Avoiding Double Payments in a Distributed Payments System

How we built a generic idempotency framework to achieve eventual consistency and correctness across our payments micro-service architecture.

Authors: Jon Chew and Ninad Khisti

One of the conference rooms in our San Francisco officeBackground

Airbnb has been migrating its infrastructure to a Service Oriented Architecture (“SOA”). SOA offers many upsides, such as enabling developer specialization and the ability to iterate faster. However, it also poses challenges for billing and payments applications because it makes it more difficult to maintain data integrity. An API call to a service that makes further API calls to downstream services, where each service …

Percona Universities in South America Next Week

There’s just one week to go before the first of this year’s Percona University events in South America. We’re really pleased with the lineup for all three events. We’re also incredibly happy with the response that we have had from the community. While we realize that a free event is… well… free… you are still giving up your time and travel. We place great value on that and we’re making sure that you’ll be hearing quality technical talks from Percona and our guest speakers. Most of the talks will be presented in Spanish – Portuguese in Brazil – although slides will be made available in English.

In fact, the events have been so popular that it’s quite possible that by the time you read this we’ll be operating a wait list for Montevideo

MySQL High Availability Framework Explained – Part III: Failure Scenarios

In this three-part blog series, we introduced a High Availability (HA) Framework for MySQL hosting in Part I, and discussed the details of MySQL semisynchronous replication in Part II. Now in Part III, we review how the framework handles some of the important MySQL failure scenarios and recovers to ensure high availability.

MySQL Failure Scenarios Scenario 1 – Master MySQL Goes Down

  • The Corosync and Pacemaker framework detects that the master MySQL is no longer available. Pacemaker demotes the master resource and tries …

Exporting Masked and De-Identified Data from MySQL

In all likelihood your MySQL database contains valuable and sensitive information. Within that database, MySQL protects that data using features such as encryption, access controls, auditing, views, and more. However in many cases you may need to share some of this data, but must at the same time protect that sensitive information.  … Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn

How to implement a database job queue using SKIP LOCKED

Introduction In this article, we are going to see how we can implement a database job queue using SKIP LOCKED. I decided to write this article while answering this Stack Overflow question asked by Rafael Winterhalter. Since SKIP LOCKED is a lesser-known SQL feature, it’s a good opportunity to show you how to use it and why you should employ it, especially when implementing a job queue task. Domain Model Let’s assume we have the following Post entity which has a status Enum property looking as follows: The PostStatus Enum encapsulates the... Read More

PHP JWT & REST API Authentication Tutorial: Login and Signup

In this tutorial, we'll learn how to add JWT authentication to our REST API PHP application.

We'll see what JWT is and how it works. We'll also see how to get the authorization header in PHP.

We'll create REST API endpoints for allowing users to login and signup to access protected resources.

What is JWT

JWT stands for JSON Web Token and comprised of user encrypted information that can be used to authenticate users and exchange information between clients and servers.

When building REST API, instead of server sessions commonly used in PHP apps we tokens which are sent with HTTP headers from the server to clients where they are persisted (usually using local storage) then attached to every outgoing request originating from the client to the server. The server checks the token and allow or deny access to the request resource.

RESTful APIs are stateless. This means that requests from clients …

Shinguz: MariaDB Prepared Statements, Transactions and Multi-Row Inserts

Last week at the MariaDB/MySQL Developer Training we had one participant asking some tricky questions I did not know the answer by heart.

Also MariaDB documentation was not too verbose (here and here).

So time to do some experiments:

Prepared Statements and Multi-Row Inserts

SQL> PREPARE stmt1 FROM 'INSERT INTO `test`.`test` (`data`) VALUES (?), (?), (?)';
Statement prepared
SQL> SET @d1 = 'Bli';
SQL> SET @d2 = 'Bla';
SQL> SET @d3 = 'Blub';
SQL> EXECUTE stmt1 USING @d1, @d2, @d3;
Query OK, 3 rows affected (0.010 sec)
Records: 3  Duplicates: 0  Warnings: 0

A Truly Open Source Database Conference

Many of our regular attendees already know that the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference is not all about Percona software or, indeed, all about Percona. However, with moving to a new city—Austin, TX— we have realized that it’s something we ought to shout out loud and clear. Our conference really is technology agnostic! As long as submissions were related to open source databases then they were candidate for selection.

We have thirteen tracks at this year’s conference including a track entitled “Other Open Source Databases” which we are presenting alongside tracks dedicated to MySQL®, …

How to Deploy Open Source Databases - New Whitepaper

We’re happy to announce that our new whitepaper How to Deploy Open Source Databases is now available to download for free!

Choosing which DB engine to use between all the options we have today is not an easy task. An that is just the beginning. After deciding which engine to use, you need to learn about it and actually deploy it to play with it. We plan to help you on that second step, and show you how to install, configure and secure some of the most popular open source DB engines.

In this whitepaper we are going to explore the top open source databases and how to deploy each technology using proven methodologies that are battle-tested.

Topics included in this whitepaper are … …
