Today’s topic is about how to test Group Replication plugin in
easy way, with using MySQL Sandbox
But firstly we must compile MySQL with Group Replication plugin, refer to previous topic -> Compiling Group Replication Plugin
Who did not use Sandbox before, please refer to official link and read a bit more. It is wonderful tool for installing, testing new things with MySQL. Especially if you have new MySQL release to test and want to install 3 or 5 instances, just use MySQL Sandbox and it will do this work for you.
In our condition, we have already compiled MySQL with our plugin. So we have source folder in -> /home/sh/Sandboxes/mysql-group-replication-0.5.0-dmr/BIN
