MySQL Workbench now using Casmine for unit and integration testing

Starting with version 8.0.18 the MySQL Workbench source package finally ships also all our GPL unit and integration tests, which we are using internally to control code quality. For that we had first to replace our old, outdated testing framework by something new and more appropriate. We evaluated quite a few C++ testing frameworks but found them either not to be sufficient or difficult to use. Instead we had something in mind that comes close to the Jasmine framework which is widely used among JS developers. The way it hides all the boring test management details and the clear structure it uses, was quite an inspiration for us and we decided to develop our own testing framework modeled after that.

Our recap of the Percona Live Conference in Austin

We were pleased to sponsor the Percona Live Conference in Austin this year: many thanks to the Percona Team for organising a smooth conference yet again!

This is the recap of our week in Texas!

At The Conference

This year’s conference was the first one not taking place in Santa Clara, CA, but rather in Austin, TX. This turned out to be a nice choice by Percona, as it meant that open source database users who may not have travelled to California in the past, were attracted to the new location; and Austin being the new hot spot for (tech) companies at the moment, a lot of “locals” seemed to have made the choice to attend the conference. It was great to meet many new faces as a result.

As Diamond Sponsors of the conference we were of course present with a booth in the exhibition hall, as well as with three talks.

And while the hotel looked slightly dystopian at night, it was in fact a nice and …

The Continuent Docker Support Policy Explained

Overview

Continuent has traditionally had a relaxed policy about Linux platform support for customers using our products.

While it is possible to install and run Continuent Tungsten products (i.e. Cluster/Replicator/etc.) inside Docker containers, there are many reasons why this is not a good idea.

Background

As background, every database node in a Tungsten Cluster runs at least three (3) layers or services:

  • MySQL Server (i.e. MySQL Community or Enterprise, MariaDB or Percona Server)
  • Tungsten Manager, which handles health-checking, signaling and failover decisions (Java-based)
  • Tungsten Replicator, which handles the movement of events from the MySQL master server binary logs to the slave databases nodes (Java-based)

Optionally, a …
