Coming up as a new feature in Tungsten Replicator (and written by our replicator expert Stephane Giron) is the ability to provision a new database by using data from an existing database. This new feature comes in the form of a tool called the Parallel Extractor. The principles are very simple. On the master side: Start the master replicator offline. Switch the replicator to the online provision...

As hopefully has been noticed, the Continuent documentation is achieving a pretty good critical mass. The content of the documentation is always the most important consideration. Secondary is making sure that the information in the documentation can be found, and that when reading, you can hover and click to get relevant information so that you can understand the content and information being prov...


Intelligent Linking and Indexing in DocBook

One of the issues I have with DocBook XML is that the links are a little forced and manual.  By that, I mean that if I have a command, like trepctl, and I used it in a sentence or description, if I want to link trepctl back to the corresponding trepctl page, I have to manually add it like this: <link linkend="cmdline-tools-trepctl"><command>trepctl</co...

I love DocBook XML. No, really. But one thing I hate is the way you have to set a global chunking level for your HTML and then live with it. For most documentation, you want to be able to choose whether a conveniently addressable section within a chapter, and then you want to combine it into one page to make it easier to read. For example, consider this page (http://docs.continuent.com/tungsten-re...

We had a great webinar on Thursday about replicating from MySQL to Hadoop (watch the whole thing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2GH5e3JoJA list=PLs75qYbERbjgOs9OqBTT3gS12aFbVRqkU index=2)). It was great, but one of the questions at the end was ‘is there an easy way to test’. Sadly we can’t go giving out convenient ready-to-run downloads of these things because of li...
