Stored Procedures/Functions for Drizzle

Previously, in “Thoughts on Thoughts on Drizzle” I theorized that one of the major reasons why we did not see lots of people jumping at stored procedures in MySQL was that it wasn’t in their native language (for lack of a better term). We’ve seen External Language Stored Procedures for MySQL that let you write stored procedures in some other languages…. but I felt something was missing.

Firstly, I wanted a language I was really familiar with and comfortable writing complex things in.

Secondly, it should be compiled so that it runs as fast as possible.

Thirdly, it shouldn’t just be linking to a pre-compiled library (drizzle function plugins do that …

Stored Procedure For Finding Columns In MySQL

Looking for instances particular column in a large schema can be a pain. Fortunately the information schema makes this pretty easy, if your columns have a consistent naming convention.

SELECT table_schema, table_name, column_name
FROM information_schema.columns
WHERE column_name LIKE '%some_name%';

Now, if we want to wrap this up into an easy to use stored procedure, we can do something like this:

drop procedure find_column;
delimiter //
CREATE PROCEDURE find_column(c varchar(255))
        SET @a = CONCAT("%", c, "%");
        SELECT table_schema, table_name, column_name, column_type
                FROM information_schema.columns
                WHERE column_name LIKE @a;
delimiter ;

We need to use the concat statement in order to properly get the quotes in there without using the literal string “c” in the LIKE statement.

You can do a search as follows:

A year in review; new direction.

It has been more than a year since my self-imposed hiatus from serious MySQL development started and I think it is about time that I get back into the saddle. I have a handful of working prototypes but I should get the code out there, back into the community.I learned a bunch of stuff during the past year at Google but in the end, working on JavaScript, HTML/CSS and Google proprietary languages
