Maintaining (and Building) your MySQL Source Tree on Windows

I just have one last post to round out my series on building MySQL and MariaDB on Windows.

Before, I showed how to obtain the latest source tree and build it. In this one, I simply want to show how easy it is to continue off of that.

  4. VS: File -> Open -> Solution -> MySql.sln

So I left a lot behind. The major project I worked on last summer, MySQL in a virtualised environment and with multiple instances on larger boxes, was part of the material we presented at the MySQL Customer Conference back in October. The results were pretty good and we showed a good level of scalability for real life applications, well beyond the typical sysbench results you can find by googling a bit here and there. I will blog about it at some point, it's just that it takes a lot of time to reorganise all the material to publish and make it understandable.

This week the topic is slightly different. We did it again, we dug into the art of building MySQL binaries and we did it on Solaris 10 for SPARC …
