Building the PHP MySQL XDevAPI PECL Extension on MySQL 8.0.11 and PHP 7.2 for the MySQL Document Store

The MySQL Document Store is a NoSQL JSON document store built upon well known MySQL database technology.  PHP runs about eight percent of the Internet.  So putting the two together is a big priority for me. So this blog post is about getting all this together on a Ubuntu 18.04 system.

Note that I will be teaching PHP and the X DevAPI at Oracle Code One and hopefully in some tutorials/workshops this year.  These session will feature the X DevAPI installed on Virtual Box images and I probably will not have time to cover these steps in detail but I will point to this as reference material.

PHP 7.2 PHP's performance has really skyrocketed with the seven series and the newer betas are looking very impressive.  But to use the new X Devapi you will need to get the shared object for it into your PHP server.

MongoDB versus MySQL Document Store Command Comparisons III

This time we will look at the differences in updating records between MongoDB and the MySQL Document Store.  Syntactically they are pretty different.  I am still following the Getting Started With MongoDB article for example queries.

Updating Records
In Mongo we update thusly:
> db.restaurants.update(
... { "name" : "Juni" },
... {
...  $set: { "cuisine" : "American (new)" },
...  $currentDate: { "lastModified" : true }
... }
... )
WriteResult({ "nMatched" : 1, "nUpserted" : 0, "nModified" : 1 })

The same update in the MySQL Document Store can be a lot different.  We could update using SQL or NoSQL.  I would like to update the document with the change to the cuisine and …

MonoDB versus MySQL Document Store Command Comparisons II

Last time I was stumped by the MongoDB $gt: operator.  I wanted to look for restaurants in a certain Manhattan burough OR in a zipcode greater than a certain zipcode.  Well, I was getting different results between Mongo and MySQL.

To > or Not To >, That Is the Query
Lets say we have three records with the same key but the values are 1, 2, and "3". Yup, you got it two numerics and one string.  I would expect schema less data to be free flowing, not typed, and pretty much a free for all.  Whoops. Bad assumption on my part for Mongo use.

I added three JSON documents into Mongo as can be seen below:

Our three documents with the values of 1, 2, …

MongoDB versus MySQL Document Store command comparisons I

Both MongoDB and the MySQL Document Store are JSON document stores.  The syntax differences in the two products are very interesting.  This long will be a comparison of how commands differ between these two products and may evolve into a 'cheat sheet' if there is demand.

I found an excellent Mongo tutorial Getting Started With MongoDB that I use as a framework to explore these two JSON document stores.
The DataI am using the primer-dataset.json file that MongoDB has been using for years  in their documentation, classes, and examples. MySQL has created the world_x data set based on the world database used for years in documentation, classes and examples.  The data set is a collection of JSON documents filled with restaurants around Manhattan.

More Porting Data from MongoDB to the MySQL Document Store

Last time we looked at moving a JSON data set from MongoDB to the MySQL Document Store.  Let's move another and then see how to investigate this date.  We will use the primer-dataset.json that contains data on restaurants around New York City.

Loading Data
The loading of the JSON data set was covered last time but here is the gist. The first step is to fire up the MySQL Shell and login to the server.

Here a new schema is created and then a new collection

 We need a new schema for this data and the example shows one created as nyeats.  The within that new schema a collection is created with the name restaurants.

Porting Data From MongoDB to MySQL Document Store in TWO Easy Steps

Porting data from MongoDB to the MySQL Document Store is very easy.  The example I will use is an example data set from the good folks at Mongo named zips.json that contains a list of US Postal Codes and can be found at for your downloading pleasure.

I copied the file into the Downloads directory on my Unbuntu laptop and then fired up the new MySQL Shell.  After login, I created a new schema creatively named zips with session.createSchema('zips').  When then set the db object to this new schema with the command \use zips.

MySQL Document Store Document IDs.

Yesterday I was presenting on the MySQL Document Store and was asked if the _id fields created by the server as an InnoDB primary key is a UUID.  I knew that it was not a UUID but I had to hit the documentations ( to find out what the document ID really is -- a very interesting piece of information.
The Details If you are inserting a document lacking a _id key, the server generates a value. The _id is 32 bits of a unique prefix (4 bytes), a time stamp (8 bytes), and serial number (16 bytes). The prefix is assigned by the InnoDB Cluster to help ensure uniqueness across a cluster. The timestamp is the encoded startup time of the server.  The serial numbers uses the auto increment offset and auto increment increment server variables .  From the manual page:
This document ID format ensures …

MySQL Document Store versus Bug hunter

Oh, there is a cool new feature added? And you are going to implement and use it?
Well, the brain of Bug lover is not working in that way, for me new feature is cool in terms of playing. It is a new place where hunt season is opened suddenly

Currently I am in Percona Live 2016 and you can catch me every time -> my name is some sort of pain to pronounce but you can just say Shako instead of Shahriyar.

Yesterday there was an interesting discussion about bug reports and in general what is a “Bug” and how i can identify that if it is a Bug or not?
Here are general rules:

1. Trust in yourself. If somebody says that, hey it is an expected behaviour, just do not believe. Go ahead and fill a report. Insist in your opinion at last it will be converted to DOC issue, pretty valid DOC Bug -> …
