X DevAPI Traffic Compression With Connector/J

X Protocol traffic compression is available on MySQL Server since version 8.0.19. A connector that also supports compression on its end can leverage this feature and reduce the byte streams that are exchanged with the Server.

By default, connections to a MySQL server are uncompressed, thus permitting exchanging data with a client or connector that doesn’t support compression. However, given a client or connector that also supports compression, it is recommended that client and server negotiate the connection compression by default. If this negotiation concludes successfully, both ends can then compress the data they send.

Compression at this level allows reducing the amount of bytes exchanged over the network, but at the cost of additional CPU resources required to run data inflate and deflate operations. The benefits of compression, therefore, occur primarily on low network bandwidth. One can assess the gain or loss due to the …

MySQL Floating Types

I’m glad that testing new MySQL releases is so frequent for me. Each testing cycle let me catch warning messages about deprecated behaviors before they’re removed. This one announced the deprecation of digits for floating point data types, like double. The following column definition for a table in my code tree triggered the warning message:

, amount                DOUBLE(10,2)

MySQL 8 (8.0.21) raised the following warning message:

Warning (code 1681): Specifying number of digits for floating point data types is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

Recognizing the deprecation, I redefined the column as:

, amount                DOUBLE

I’m glad the MySQL development team is focused on alerting us to deprecations through warning messages. Naturally, I fixed all of …

MySQL Provisioning

I’ve been using MySQL 8 on Linux for a couple years but the Linux repository version didn’t install the new MySQL Shell. So, I discovered the new MySQL Shell when I installed MySQL 8 (8.0.21) on Windows to teach my student how to use it to learn SQL commands. I encourage you to read the full MySQL Shell document.

The following is a tutorial to provision a student user and studentdb database in MySQL. It uses the MySQL Shell (mysqlsh) and stages for uploads of comma-separated values files.

After installing MySQL on the Windows 10 OS, open the Window OS Command Line Interface (CLI) shell by entering the following in the search field at the bottom left:

cmd

It launches a CLI interface to the Windows OS. The cmd (command) utility opens the CLI in the following …

MySQL Server-side

A student question: Does JavaScript make context switching for web-based applications obsolete? Wow! I asked what that meant. He said, it means JavaScript replaces all other server-side programming languages, like PHP, C#, or Python. I asked the student why he believed that. His answer was that’s what two interviewing managers told him.

I thought it would be interesting to put the idea to a test. Below is a Node.js script that acts as a utility that queries the MySQL database with substitution variables in query. It also returns a standard out (stdout) stream of the MySQL query’s results. It also supports three flag and value pairs as arguments, and optionally writes the results of the MySQL query to a log file while still returning result as the stdout value. All errors are written to the standard error (stderr) stream.

The Node.js solution is completely portable between Windows …
