Experimental MySQL UDF code partially written in Python

Hi dear all,
I would like to share our experimental tests about, writing UDF with Python.
So the basic idea was writing a UDF for factorial calculation. The interesting part was to move factorial calculation logic to Python code and then calling this Python file inside UDF code.

Here is the repo link -> UDFs-written-in-Python

The factorial calculation is here ->
UDF code is here ->

Basic idea with UDF code quite simple as it has 3 parts:
1. initialization part -> factorial_init() -> all necessary checks reside here
2. main logic -> …

My first patch for MySQL world; fixing BUG #76852

Hi dear MySQL Community.
I have reported a bunch of bugs and wrote some articles, but today is a special for me
Because today I send my first PR for MySQL source code.

So I have logged a bug -> #76852 and now fixed it after year.
Okey, I know I am lazy.

Let’s reproduce the bug.
Simulating full disk condition is easy as:

mkdir /filesystems
dd if=/dev/zero of=/filesystems/tmp_fs bs=1024 count=0 seek=$[1024*10]
mkfs.ext4 /filesystems/tmp_fs
mkdir small_mounted_dir
mount -o loop /filesystems/tmp_fs /home/sh/small_mounted_dir/

Then obtain MySQL source and compile it with DEBUG. If you don’t know how to do it just refer to -> installing-mysql-from-source-cmake-issues

From now you can use MySQL Sandbox to …

Playing with MySQL Source code; Adding “STOP ALL SLAVES” command

This blog post is a result of reading book.
To be clear -> “Expert MySQL” by Charles Bell ->
This book explain internals of MySQL based on 5.6.x version. So relatively new and really good resource to use.

So the task is:
Chapter 8, “Extending MySQL High Availability” -> page 310, “Extending Replication”.
Where we should add new command -> “SQLCOM_STOP_SLAVES” executed on master and causing to STOP IO_THREAD on all slaves.
The basic idea is to run “STOP ALL SLAVES” on master, which in turn will appear on binary log and then it will applied on slaves.

MySQL version is 5.6.32.

So, as book advice go to sql/lex.h. “We are adding the new symbol for the command. This file contains the symbol array stored in …

Connector/J moves to Git

I’m pleased to announce that Connector/J has a new home.

Just as several other MySQL products, Connector/J source code management moved to Git and, pretty much as expected, to GitHub. Our reasoning is nothing else than listening to our users demands and trying to follow best trends and practices. There was nothing significantly wrong with Bazaar and Launchpad, as they served us well for the last seven years. It was just time to move on.

Rest assured, all will work as before, no complications no hassles. Our public GitHub repository will expose Connector/J source code as it is in the latest generally available (GA) release, as it has been for the last years.

From now on you will find …

Added a Table of Contents

Not a big deal, but I just added a “Table of Contents” page to my blog to make finding older articles much easier.

I noticed most of my posts are quite lengthy, and it can take a bit of searching/clicking to find an older entry. So unless you happen to recall the ‘month/year’ it was published, which I don’t even remember that, then hopefully this will help.

Really simple, and looks just like this:

The MySQL Source is Now Back on Launchpad!

Last Friday, I had posted that the MySQL Source Code on Launchpad had not been updated (or rather not accessible by Lauchpad) in nearly a month.

I had actually started to file a bug report about this, but when posting the relevant links for documentation, I had noticed new information had been posted yesterday (10/10/2011).

Here was the orignal MySQL Launchpad page:

Here is the new message on this page:

“This is the old MySQL server branch and it is no longer used since mirroring setup has changed.

You can find the development head at instead.”

If you navigate to the new page:

Where’s the Updated MySQL Source Code on Launchpad?

I know I’m not the only one to have noticed that all MySQL branches on Launchpad have not been accessible since September 10th, 2011, nearly 1 month.

Just visit here:

You’ll see it says:

“This branch may be out of date, because Launchpad has not been able to access it since 2011-09-10.”

I’d been seeing “No revisions to pull.” messages latley, when running “bzr pull”, but didn’t give it a whole lot of thought until reading the above note on Launchpad today.

Is it due to the recent security breach (where was hacked and infected some visitors with malware)? Well, I doubt it since this started on 9/10/2011 and the breach, according to The Register, occurred on 9/26/2011 (some 2 weeks later):

Bug When Compiling MySQL 5.1 From Source

I just filed a very annoying bug when trying to compile with plugin engines using the 5.1.xx source tarball.


I am trying to test SphinxSE as a plugin instead of getting it statically linked and came across an annoying bug. When using the configure --with-plugins option only once, the engine is statically linked. When using it twice, the first engine is created as a plugin, and the 2nd one is linked statically. Here are a couple of examples:./configure –prefix=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.33 –with-plugins=innobase –with-plugins=sphinx

plugin_innobase_shared_target=''   <-- plugin
plugin_sphinx_static_target='libsphinx.a'       <-- static
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.33 --with-plugins=sphinx …

Changing MySQL’s Community Contribution Agreement

A while ago, MySQL developed a Community Contribution Agreement for community contributions to the MySQL source code. While browsing the MySQL Forge Wiki I came across:

This page shows that the Community Contribution Agreement has changed — it is no longer the document MySQL AB created. It is now Sun Microsystem’s standard Sun Contributor Agreement, which CEO Mårten Mickos recently explained to me was “more accepted than the agreement MySQL had come up with.”

I am happy to see some of the great Sun practices trickle down to replace some issues that MySQL did not handle smoothly. All in all, I agree with Mårten Mickos and think the Sun Contributor Agreement is much better….

….but what do you think?
