Comparison of Window Functions & CTEs in MySQL 8 vs MariaDB

Every MySQL database programmer should learn and apply the newly added MariaDB and MySQL Window Functions and Common Table Expressions(CTEs) in their daily work. Both CTEs and window functions enable easy solutions to many query challenges that in prior releases have been difficult and sometimes impossible to surmount.

With shared applications, it is not uncommon for multiple users to share the same user account. The drawback to this arrangement is that there is no way to see which actual user was responsible for which action.

Roles make managing this much easier. For example, there …
