NoSQL has been given a lot of hype in recent years. As with most new technologies, the
underlying principles are rarely truly new, rather, it is the unique combination of known
technologies that forms and transforms the whole to become more than the sum of its
parts. This is especially true for MySQL 8 and the new MySQL Document Store. Never
has MySQL offered so much for so many. Whether you want a traditional relational
database solution with a strong foundation or you want the ultimate flexibility to store
JSON documents in a document store—or anywhere in between, MySQL can do it.
The trick then is learning how to migrate your applications using each of these
technologies: whether you use traditional tables with fixed schemas or you have some
JSON fields to allow some freedom from rigid structure or you employ the flexibility of a
JSON-based document store.
This book will give you the knowledge you seek to navigate the MySQL Document
Store including how to migrate existing applications and best practices for using a
document store solution.

Semistructured Database Design The work presented in this book came about after we recognized that illdesigned semistructured databases can lead to update anomalies, and there is a strong need for algorithms and tools to help users design storage structures for semistructured data. We have been publishing papers in the design of databases for semistructured data since 1999, and...
Practical Software Testing Stions of this new direction can be found, for example, in the ‘‘Software
Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK)’’ and the code of ethics that
have been developed recently through the efforts of joint IEEE/ACM task
forces [1,2]. Licensing procedures for software engineers are also under
Perfect Passwords: Selection, Protection, Authentication User passwords are the keys to the network kingdom, yet most users choose overly simplistic passwords (like password) that anyone could guess, while system administrators demand impossible to remember passwords littered with obscure characters and random numerals.
Every computer user must face the problems of password security. According...
Rotation Transforms for Computer Graphics
Rotation transforms are used everywhere in computer graphics from rotating pictures in editing software, to providing an arbitrary view of a 3D virtual environment. Although the former is a trivial operation, the latter can be a challenging task.
