JSON Schema Validation with MySQL 8.0.17

JSON has become the standard document interchange format over the last several years.  MySQL 5.7 added a native JSON data type and it has been  greatly enhanced with version 8.0.  But many in the relational world have complained the the NoSQL approach does not allow you to have rigor on your data. That is to make sure an integer value is really an integer and within specified ranges or string of the proper length. And there was no way to make sure that email addresses are not listed under a combination of E-mail, e-mail, eMail, and eMAIL.  JSON is great for many things but traditional, normalized data was better for making certain that your data matched what was specified.

If only there was a way to enforce come rigor on JSON data! Or a way to annotate (pronounced 'document') your JSON data. Well there is. MySQL 8.0.17 has added the ability to validate JSON documents against a schema following the guidelines of the …

Three New JSON Functions in MySQL 8.0.17

MySQL 8.0.17 adds three new functions to the JSON repertoire.  All three can take advantage of the new Multi-Value Index feature or can be used on JSON arrays.

JSON_CONTAINS(target, candiate[, path])
This function indicates with a 1 or 0 if a  candidate document is contained in the target document. The optional path argument lets you seek information in embedded documents.  And please note the 'haystack' is before the 'needle' for this function.

mysql> SELECT JSON_CONTAINS('{"Moe": 1, "Larry": 2}','{"Moe": 1}');
+------------------------------------------------------+
| JSON_CONTAINS('{"Moe": 1, "Larry": 2}','{"Moe": 1}') |

MySQL 8.0.16 New Features Summary

Presentation of some of the new features of MySQL 8.0.16 released on April 25, 2019

Structuring Your Unstructured JSON data

The world seems awash in unstructured, NoSQL data, mainly of the JSON variety.  While this has a great many benefits as far as data mutability and not being locked into a rigid structure there are some things missing that are common in the structured world of SQL databases.

What if there was a way to take this unstructured NoSQL JSON data and cast it, temporarily, into a structured table?  Then you could use all the processing functions and features found in a relation database on you data.  There is a way and it is the JSON_TABLE function.

JSON_TABLE
You can find the documentation for JSON_TABLE here  but there are some examples below that may make learning this valuable function easier than the simple RTFM.

I will be using the world_x dataset for the next example

MySQL 8.0.16: how to validate JSON values in NoSQL with check constraint

As you may have noticed, MySQL 8.0.16 has been released today !

One of the major long expected feature is the support of CHECK contraints .

My colleague, Dave Stokes, already posted an article explaining how this works.

In this post, I wanted to show how we could take advantage of this new feature to validate JSON values.

Let’s take the following example:

So we have a collection of documents representing rates from a user on some episodes. Now, I expect that the value for the rating should be between 0 and …

MySQL JSON Document Store

MySQL 8.0 provides another way to handle JSON documents, actually in a "Not only SQL" (NoSQL) approach... In other words, if you need/want to manage JSON documents (collections) in a non-relational manner, with CRUD (acronym for Create/Read/Update/Delete) operations then you can use MySQL 8.0! Did you know that?

MySQL Connector/Python 8.0.14+: Changed Expression Handling in mysqlx

Tweet

The X DevAPI allows you to work with JSON documents and SQL tables at the same time. Furthermore, the CRUD style API is more intuitive than SQL statements for some programmers. Either way, the X DevAPI allows you to mix JSON documents, SQL tables, CRUD methods, and SQL statements to give you the best of all worlds. In MySQL Connector/Python, the X DevAPI is implemented in the mysqlx module.

This blog will look at how MySQL Connector/Python handles expressions, and how you in version 8.0.14 and later need to use the mysqlx.expr() method to explicitly define expressions.

SunshinePHP has become a favorite conference for many PHP developers for many reasons and this morning I will be running a three hour tutorial on using the PECL MySQL X DevAPI and the MySQL Document Store with PHP and then have a one hour talk later in the show. Plus I am joined by the amazing Kathy Forte who will speak on Driving Innovation With MySQL 8.0 and Docker.
