He will also discuss many of the fundamental elements used when developing PHP applications with MySQL, including the frameworks, APIs, security features, and asynchronous queries.
On Demand Webinar: Designing to Scale to 200K Transactions per Second with Open Source: MySQL, Java, curl, PHP
It is possible to build an ad-engine that can serve up more ads than Twitter to an audience larger than Twitter's, using fewer than 10 MySQL servers producing more then 200K Transactions per Second across a Multi-Terabyte store with all open source software. MySQL with InnoDB/myISAM, curl, PHP, and Java are the only components that are necessary for this linearly scaling engine without user-facing downtime.
MySQL is the world's most popular open-source database, and there are a lot of Java developers who use MySQL databases in their applications. In this Deep Dive, Mark Matthews, architect for Enterprise Tools Team at Oracle, demonstrated some of the techniques that can help Java developers get more out of their applications that use MySQL.
Java is among the most popular development languages for MySQL applications. In this webinar, Java and MySQL expert Mark Matthews will present the basic knowledge for you to get started developing and deploying simple Java applications with MySQL, including installation pre-requisites and process, options in architecture and frameworks, as well as how to handle transactions.
In this session, the author of Connector/J, Mark Matthews, will show you how to wring that last little bit of performance out of your Java applications deployed on MySQL by not using the out-of-the-box configuration. Connector/J has nearly 200 configuration options, many of which affect performance. Mark will show you how to move from generic to customized, illustrating how to set Connector/J options that will deliver the best performance for your specific application.
