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. Of course having a native JSON datatype brings more value. It introduces JSON [...]

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 [...]

Upcoming Webinar: MySQL 5.7 in a Nutshell

Join Alexander Rubin, Principal Consultant, Percona as he provides an overview of MySQL 5.7 features. Wednesday, December 9, 2015 10:00AM PST (GMT -08:00).

MySQL® 5.7 is a great release that has a lot to offer, especially in the areas of development and replication. It provides many new optimizer features for developers, a much more powerful GIS function, and a high performance JSON data type – allowing for a more powerful store for semi-structured data. It also features a dramatically improved Performance Schema and Parallel and Multi-Source replication – allowing you to scale much further than ever before.

Using JSON as Dynamic Columns with MariaDB

MariaDB CONNECT storage engine handles access to JSON files through standard SQL. It comes with a set of UDFs (user defined functions) to manipulate the JSON format. This JSON content can be stored in a normal text column. This approach can be used to implement dynamic columns. The dynamic column concept was first introduced with [...]

State of JSON UDF functions

When I was leaving Oracle I wrote a blog post saying what I stop working on JSON UDF project. However I still receive bug reports privately and publicly.

Although I feel good seeing my project used I still don't want to restart work on it. After all idea of it was mostly preparing interface for native JSON functions, available in 5.7. Since 5.7 is GA now I strictly recommend to upgrade for everyone who can do it.

If you need JSON functions native ones have big advantage: they are much faster than UDF. This is not only because algorithms used (I never tested mine for speed btw), but also because 5.7 has …

MySQL: a few observations on the JSON type

MySQL 5.7 comes with built-in JSON support, comprising two major features:

Despite being added rather recently (in MySQL 5.7.8 to be precise - one point release number before the 5.7.9 GA version), I feel the JSON support so far looks rather useful. Improvements are certainly possible, but compared to for example XML support (added in 5.1 and 5.5), the JSON feature set added to 5.7.8 is reasonably complete, coherent and standards-compliant.

(We can of course also phrase …

Inline JSON Path Expressions in MySQL 5.7

MySQL 5.7.9 has a new feature, that simplifies queries that deal with JSON data and makes more human-readable: inlined JSON path expressions. Now you can do following:

mysql> CREATE TABLE employees (data JSON);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0,01 sec)

mysql> INSERT INTO employees VALUES ('{"id": 1, "name": "Jane"}');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0,00 sec)

mysql> INSERT INTO employees VALUES ('{"id": 2, "name": "Joe"}');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0,00 sec)

mysql> SELECT * FROM employees WHERE data->'$.id'= 2;

| data                     |
| {"id": 2, "name": "Joe"} |
1 row in set (0,01 sec)

Let’s take a closer look at the expression in the WHERE clause.…
