MySQL University Session on OpenSolaris Web Stack — 11 Sep 2008

Tomorrow, there’s a particularly interesting MySQL University session coming up: The OpenSolaris Web Stack.

This session is presented by key experts outside the Database Group, but inside Sun:

  • Jyri Virkki, lead for OpenSolaris Web Stack community, Sun Microsystems
  • Murthy Chintalapati, Web Stack development, Sr Engineering Manager, Sun Microsystems

For practical reasons, this session happens three hours later than normal. To decipher that into a timezone which may be familiar to you, this means 9:00 PST / 16:00 UTC / 17:00 GMT / 18:00 CET.


OpenSolaris Web Stack is an OpenSolaris project and community building an integrated stack of …

Call for Papers for MySQL Conference — by 22 Oct 2008

Innovation Everywhere! That’s the motto of the MySQL Conference & Expo 20-23 April 2009, in Santa Clara.

If April next year sounds like the distant future to you, then you’re evidently not planning to be a presenter. Since if you do plan to present, there’s a very close date relevant for you: 22 October 2008. That’s when the Call for Papers closes.

If you’re an innocent bystander and don’t plan on presenting, you may still enjoy lurking at the MySQL Conference Website, for instance looking at some of the full-length keynote videos already posted from the 2008 conference.

On the other hand, if you’re …

Senna & Tritonn: Fast full text search in Japanese

Friday afternoon, I met with Tetsuro Ikeda-san and Teruyoshi Hazama-san of MySQL’s long-time key partner in Japan, Sumisho. Ikeda-san and Hazama-san taught me about their work on full text search in Japanese.

Senna is an engine for fast full text search in Japanese. The Senna project derives its name from Formula I driver Ayrton Senna. “But he’s dead”, I protested. “Sure, but he is a legend and will always be associated with speed.” I cannot protest there — and the numbers I saw for Senna’s full-text search defend the choice of name.

Tritonn is the combination of Senna into MySQL. The Tritonn name refers to two things: Triton Square in Tokyo, where Sumisho has its offices, and to the fact …

Navigating categories within my blog

With 130 entries in the “MySQL” category and no MySQL-related subcategories, my blog had become impossible to search and navigate easily.

And thus I created a number of new categories for the MySQL entries within my blog. They’re listed in the left navigation bar, below the months, as well as below:

Symbian enlightened by LAMP

Followers of the Forum Nokia Developer Discussion Boards saw interesting pre-announcements last month:

Nokia has ported MySQL and PHP to Symbian.

With 165 million cumulative Symbian smartphones shipped since the formation of Symbian and currently 134 Symbian smartphone models commercially available, it would be interesting to see the effects on the 8,134 third-party Symbian applications commercially available by what Nokia calls “PAMP”.

Availability is planned for next month, at the CCNC 2008 (Fifth IEEE Consumer Communications &Networking Conference, 10 - 12 January 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada).

Johan Wikman of Nokia, who …
