De-Normalization of Your Database with JSON

One of the humbling things about working at Oracle with the various MySQL personnel is that you are often blown away by something one of them says or does.  And that is on a regular basis.  In this case it is Dr. Charles Bell who gave a great series of presentations last June at the Southeast Linuxfest.
In particular he presented in a full formed state some ideas that had been rattling around in my  skull (but no way near as coherent) on how to take advantage of the MySQL JSON data type.  Below are his points from his slide deck.  I was reviewing my notes from his presentation when I realized that this information really needs to be more widely disseminated.   And I would like your feedback on these ideas?
1.. We can use a JSON field to eliminate one of the issues of traditional database solutions: many-to-many-joins

  • This allows more freedom to store unstructured data (data with pieces …

InnoDB Cluster in a Nutshell Part 3: MySQL Shell

Welcome to the third part of this series. I’m glad you’re still reading, as hopefully this means you find this subject interesting at least. Previously we presented the first two components of MySQL InnoDB Cluster: Group Replication and MySQL Router and now we will discuss the last component, MySQL Shell.

MySQL Shell

This is the last component in the cluster and I love it. Oracle have created this tool to centralize cluster management, providing a friendly, command-line based user interface.

The tool can be defined as an advanced MySQL shell, which is much more powerful than the well known MySQL client. With the capacity to work …

Plenty of new MySQL books

In the old days, when we wanted to strengthen our skills the only option was to buy a good book. Nowadays one can find a lot of resources on the Internet, however quality is often poor. Fortunately there are still some great people who are brave enough to write new books that will help a new generation of women and men to build modern applications with MySQL the world's most popular open source database. Let me introduce you 3 MySQL books : Introducing the MySQL 8 Document Store / MySQL and JSON: A Practical Programming Guide / Pro MySQL NDB Cluster

Finding Values with JSON_CONTAINS

There was an interesting but hard to read post on StackOverflow about how 'insert select delete' data from a MySQL JSON data type column.  The first line of the writer's problem is a little confusing '
In order to record user mac_address and count mac_address to restrict user login's pc or notebook to control user available max for example (it's work)' but the examples reveled more about what was desired. The idea was to track MAC address used by various users and the author of the question was wondering how to up data a JSON Array of values with JSON_INSERT.  INSERT is for inserting and the better choice would be JSON_ARRAY_APPEND or JSON_ARRAY_INSERT.    But what caught my eye was the second question: Select sql command for json column ? could be …

Top 10 reasons for NoSQL with MySQL

As you know, one of the great new feature in MySQL 8.0 is the Document Store. Now with MySQL you can store your JSON documents in collections and manage them using CRUD operations. NoSQL is now part of MySQL ! Instead of a mix of MongoDB and MySQL, now you can eliminate MongoDB and consolidate with MySQL !

This is a historical meeting of NoSQL and SQL in the same database server!

To use MySQL 8.0 as Document Store, you need to have the X plugin installed (by default since 8.0.11). This plugin enables the X DevAPI that offers a modern programming interface. Clients that communicate with a …

MonoDB versus MySQL Document Store Command Comparisons II

Last time I was stumped by the MongoDB $gt: operator.  I wanted to look for restaurants in a certain Manhattan burough OR in a zipcode greater than a certain zipcode.  Well, I was getting different results between Mongo and MySQL.

To > or Not To >, That Is the Query
Lets say we have three records with the same key but the values are 1, 2, and "3". Yup, you got it two numerics and one string.  I would expect schema less data to be free flowing, not typed, and pretty much a free for all.  Whoops. Bad assumption on my part for Mongo use.

I added three JSON documents into Mongo as can be seen below:

Our three documents with the values of 1, 2, …

More Porting Data from MongoDB to the MySQL Document Store

Last time we looked at moving a JSON data set from MongoDB to the MySQL Document Store.  Let's move another and then see how to investigate this date.  We will use the primer-dataset.json that contains data on restaurants around New York City.

Loading Data
The loading of the JSON data set was covered last time but here is the gist. The first step is to fire up the MySQL Shell and login to the server.

Here a new schema is created and then a new collection

 We need a new schema for this data and the example shows one created as nyeats.  The within that new schema a collection is created with the name restaurants.

Porting Data From MongoDB to MySQL Document Store in TWO Easy Steps

Porting data from MongoDB to the MySQL Document Store is very easy.  The example I will use is an example data set from the good folks at Mongo named zips.json that contains a list of US Postal Codes and can be found at http://media.mongodb.org/zips.json for your downloading pleasure.

I copied the file into the Downloads directory on my Unbuntu laptop and then fired up the new MySQL Shell.  After login, I created a new schema creatively named zips with session.createSchema('zips').  When then set the db object to this new schema with the command \use zips.
