Indexing JSON documents via Virtual Columns

In a previous post I took the new JSON datatype and functions for a test drive, using sample data provided by SF OpenData. Today I will extend that example to include indexing.

JSON document fast lookup with MySQL 5.7

In this blog post, we’ll discuss JSON document fast lookup with MySQL 5.7.

Recently I attended Morgan Tocker’s talk on MySQL 5.7 and JSON at FOSDEM, and I found it awesome.

I learned some great information from the talk. Let me share one of them here: a very useful trick if you plan to store JSON documents in your MySQL database and want to retrieve the documents from some attribute’s values. So let’s look at how to do JSON document fast lookup with MySQL 5.7!

In this short example, I show you how we can speed up this type of search using JSON functions and virtual columns.

This our test table:

Table: test_features
Create Table: CREATE TABLE …

Taking the new MySQL 5.7 JSON features for a test drive

MySQL 5.7 introduces both a new native JSON datatype, and a set of SQL functions to be able to manipulate and search data in a very natural way on the server-side. Today I wanted to show a simple of example of these features in action using sample data from SF OpenData.…

Loading JSON into MariaDB or even MySQL - mysqljsonimport 2.0 is available

It was a long time since I updated mysqljsonimport or mysqljsonexport and I had a few things I wanted to do with them. This release is significant enough for me to bump it up to 2.0, and the same is in the works for mysqljsonexport. The one big thing that is now implemented is reasonably advanced support for MariaDB Dynamic Columns, and it is actually pretty flexible, allowing you to load a nested JSON object into a MariaDB Dynamic Column. But don't worry, it will still link and run with MySQL if that is what you want to do (but then you will not have the dynamic column features, for obvious reasons),

Download from Sourceforge as usual (yes, I know I am oldfashioned and that I should have put it on github). Also as usual is the documentation in pdf format that is also downloadable separately.

MariaDB and Native JSON support ?

A question raised by my previous post is : What about MariaDB and native JSON support ? In my previous post I mentioned the possibility to use the MariaDB CONNECT storage Engine to store and access JSON content in normal text field.

MariaDB JSON text indexing

It is not new that we can store a JSON content in a normal table text field. This has always been the case in the past. But two key features were missing : filtering based on JSON content attributes and indexing of the JSON content. With MariaDB 10.1 CONNECT storage Engine we offer support for [...]

Using JSON’s Arrays for MariaDB Dynamic Columns

The JSON format includes the concept of array. A JSON object cant contain an attribute of array type. We have seen that we can use the MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine provided UDFs (user defined functions) to implement dynamic columns.

Let us create a table with a text column containing a a JSON string and let [...]
