Top 10 reasons for NoSQL with MySQL

As you know, one of the great new feature in MySQL 8.0 is the Document Store. Now with MySQL you can store your JSON documents in collections and manage them using CRUD operations. NoSQL is now part of MySQL ! Instead of a mix of MongoDB and MySQL, now you can eliminate MongoDB and consolidate with MySQL !

This is a historical meeting of NoSQL and SQL in the same database server!

To use MySQL 8.0 as Document Store, you need to have the X plugin installed (by default since 8.0.11). This plugin enables the X DevAPI that offers a modern programming interface. Clients that communicate with a …

MySQL InnoDB Cluster – Compatibility Matrix

Recently during my several talks and trips to meet the MySQL Community and MySQL InnoDB Cluster, I realized that some important message was missing. I got a lot of questions about which version of Router or Shell people should use. There is some confusion about which version to use, it seems that people thinks they should use MySQL Shell 1.0.x and MySQL Router 2.1.x with MySQL 5.7 and use the 8.0.x version having the same version as MySQL 8.0. This is wrong !

In fact, whatever the version of MySQL InnoDB Cluster you are using, you should ALWAYS use the latest version of Router and Shell. Currently it’s 8.0.11. So yes, even if you use MySQL 5.7.22, you MUST use MySQL Router 8.0.11 and …

Use MySQL Shell Securely from Bash

This blog post discusses how to use MySQL shell securely from Bash.

The Bourne shell is everywhere. It is part of the most basic Linux install. You will find it on the biggest SPARC machines down to a Raspberry Pi. It is nice to know it will always be there. Unlike other, more complex scripting environments such as Perl and Python, it doesn’t require any additional dependencies to be installed.

Anyone that has automated a MySQL task using a Bourne shell such as Bash will be familiar with the following message:

Warning: Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.

This semi-ominous warning describes a security flaw in passing credentials on a process command line. Any unprivileged user on the system can use a …

MySQL Shell, opening session in a wrong way

This topic is about general usage for MySQL Shell and X-Plugin.
The most important thing, i think we should keep in mind that, the X-Plugin will listen not MySQL’s port, but it’s own 33060 port as shown from log:

2016-07-15T07:21:09.454761Z 200 [Note] Plugin mysqlx reported: 'X plugin tcp connection enable at port 33060.'
2016-07-15T07:21:09.454959Z 200 [Note] Plugin mysqlx reported: 'Scheduler "work" started.'
2016-07-15T07:21:09.454976Z 200 [Note] Plugin mysqlx reported: 'X plugin initialization successes'

Major post-GA features in the 5.7 release!

Interesting developments in the MySQL world – it can now be used as a document store and you can query the database using JavaScript instead of SQL (via the MySQL Shell). There is also a new X Plugin (see: mysql-5.7.12/rapid/) (which now makes use of protocol buffers (see: mysql-5.7.12/extra/protobuf/)). I will agree, this is more than just a maintenance release.

Do get started playing with MySQL Shell. If you’re using the yum repository, remember to ensure you have …

MySQL shell prompt vs MongoDB shell prompt

Recently Todd Farmer shared an interesting story about the mysql command line prompt in MySQL 5.7: how it was changed to provide more context and why the change was finally reverted. This made me think that after using the command line client for MongoDB for awhile, I would love seeing a much more modern mysql shell prompt. Here are a few examples of what a modern command line client can do.

Add dynamic information to the prompt

If you use replication with MongoDB, you have probably noticed a nice feature of the prompt: it is replication aware. What I mean is that for a standalone instance, the prompt is simply:

>

When you configure this instance to be the primary of a replica set named RS, the prompt automatically becomes:

RS:PRIMARY>

and for secondaries, you will see:
