The focus of this release of the product is to unify the components that previously …

New Continuent Webinar Wednesdays and Training Tuesdays

We are just starting to get into the swing of setting up our new training and webinar schedule. Initially, there will be one Webinar session (typically on a Wednesday) and one training session (on a Tuesday) every week from now. We’ll be covering a variety of different topics at each. Typically our webinars will be about products and features, comparisons to other products, mixed in with product news (new releases, new features) and individual sessions based on what is going on at Continuent and the market in general. Our training, by comparison, is going to be a hands-on, step-by-step sequence covering all of the different areas of our product. So we’ll cover everything from the basics of how the products work, how to deploy them, typical functionality (switching, start/stop, etc), and troubleshooting. All of the sessions are going to be recorded and we’ll produce a suitable archive page so that you can go and view the past sessions. Need a …

Kafka Replication from MySQL and Oracle

Hello again everybody.

Well, I promised it a couple of weeks ago, and I’m sorry it has been so long (I’ve been working on other fun stuff in addition to this). But I’m pleased to say that we now have a fully working applier that takes data from an incoming THL stream, whether that is Oracle or MySQL, and converts that into a JSON document and message for distribution over a Kafka topic.

Currently, the configuration is organised with the following parameters:

  • The topic name is set according to the incoming schema and table. You can optionally add a prefix. So, for example, if you have a table ‘invoices’ in the schema ‘sales’, your Kafka topic will be sales_invoices, or if you’ve added a prefix, ‘myprefix_schema_table’.
  • Data is marshalled into a JSON document as part of the message, and the structure is to have a bunch of metadata and then an embedded record. You’ll see an …

Replicating into ElasticSearch

So here at Continuent we are working on multiple new targets for applying data using Tungsten Replicator. There are so many potential targets out there where people want to replicate data directly into a specific system, sometimes just for a specific data set, table, database or requirements.

Yesterday afternoon, I started working on ElasticSearch – this morning I have it finished!

As with all solutions, the same basic principles apply – want to pull out of MySQL or Oracle and into something else? That’s fine. Want to replicate to HDFS and ElasticSearch? We do that too!

So what does it look like?

Installation operates just our normal appliers – you just specify the datasource type (ElasticSearch) and the EL host name and port:

tools/tpm configure alpha \
--datasource-type=elasticsearch \
--install-directory=/opt/continuent \ …
