Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows

Recently, I found myself needing MariaDB 5.1.60 for Windows for some testing purposes. Therefore, I needed to build it from source. I ended up using what I’d call a “blend” of the commands listed in this “how-to” and the readme file INSTALL-WIN-SOURCE, so I thought I’d post those steps.

  1. Download 5.1.60 MariaDB source from here.
  2. cd C:\mariadb-5.1
  3. win\configure.js
  4. cmake .
  5. VS: File -> Open -> Solution -> MySql.sln
  6. VS: Build -> Build Solution
  7. VS: Right-click “PACKAGE” -> Build (in “Solution Explorer” View)

That’s it.

Let’s fire it up:

MariaDB> select version(); …

Abusing MySQL (& thoughts on NoSQL)

The NoSQL/relational database debate has been going on for quite some time. MariaDB, like MySQL is relational. And if you read these series of blog posts, you’ll realise that if you use MySQL correctly, you can achieve quite a lot.

FederatedX now part of MariaDB!

I'm extremely happy to announce that the MariaDB project has integrated FederatedX into the main tree and has replaced the old, un-maintained Federated storage engine! This means that from now on, I will target any FederatedX changes and enhancements for MariaDB since it will be easier than having to try to make it run as a pluggable storage engine. This also means I will have another reason why I should keep this project moving forward. I will still provide the ability for anyone who wants to use it as a pluggable engine (not that difficult) so this can be loaded with MySQL as well.

Also changed: I changed to using the BSD license for FederatedX.

For Drizzle, I will need to rewrite a good part of the code base to use libdrizzle as well as the new storage engine interface, so they will be somewhat separate projects -- though I'll do my best to keep them the same single project.

I want to thank Monty …

FederatedX Moved to Launchpad

Just a quick post that I've moved The FederatedX Storage Engine for MySQL to Launchpad from my Mercurial repository. I'm trying like anything to get a spare moment to work on it-- writing a book takes every spare moment I have. I have made it group accessible and am working with Antony Curtis (who with Arjen encouraged me to get this on LP) on it. So, what I need to do is start a 5.1 compile (it has a problem with latest 5.1) and then give it a test run to see what the problem is. I want to keep this project moving!

The Launchpad page for it is:
