Amazon.com Review

Though this product's name tends to indicate that it's purely a database tool, NuSphere MySQL is really a suite of four open-source software packages--proven, popular, and well-supported ones--that work together to run interactive, dynamic Internet sites. This package is comprised of the MySQL relational database management system (RDBMS), interpreters for the Perl and PHP languages, and the Apache Web server. It's far from just a straight CD-ROM distribution of publicly available software, though. NuSphere has done a great job of automating the packages' installation processes--this suite installs on both Windows and Linux--so the four utilities interoperate smoothly. You can also install any or all of the suite's components manually, or compile from the included source code.

The big boys of databases--Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft, and others--would like you to believe that only their big, expensive RDBMS products are good enough to handle your data. It's just not true. Most of the time you'll find that MySQL, an open-source RDBMS that's widely used and meticulously maintained, is entirely adequate for storing, retrieving, and reporting on your pieces of data. It supports standard structured query language (SQL, as defined in the SQL-92 specification), and should be familiar to anyone who's done SQL work in any environment before. MySQL has been tested extensively and has been found to stack up well against commercial database products, particularly with small- to mid-size data stores and moderate transaction loads. The point: unless you have unusually tough requirements (such as an astronomical transaction load, a need to store epic quantities of data, or a need for a feature that's available only in commercial RDBMSes), MySQL can do what you want reliably and speedily. It's a well-built RDBMS that does everything most applications require. Its appeal is enhanced by the programming languages and tools that have grown up around it. This kit includes version 3.23.41.

PHP (the letters come from the German for "Hypertext Preprocessor") is similar in function to Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) and Sun's JavaServer Pages (JSP) scripting languages. PHP code is embedded in documents that are to be sent out by a Web server, and is interpreted before the page is served. That means you can use PHP (version 4.0.6 is part of the NuSphere product) to do database lookups (the language has a set of commands specifically for connecting to MySQL databases). PHP can format the results of the lookups as HTML, which the Web server would then send to the requesting browser. You can set up HTML forms to be submitted to PHP scripts, as well, which means you can use HTML, PHP, and MySQL together to create complete user interfaces for your databases.

If you prefer using Perl (Practical Extraction and Report Language) to PHP or require its more extensive text-manipulation capabilities, this kit provides you with Perl 5.6.1. Like PHP, Perl has modules (included here) that make it easy to query MySQL databases and use the results in your applications. Perl, like PHP, can be used to generate Web pages based on query results. Perl has a gigantic following, and as a result you'll find hundreds of books, mailing lists, chat rooms, sample-code libraries, and experts on it. It's a pretty consistent and easy-to-understand language, too, so learning is relatively easy.

Tying it all together: Apache, the popular, refined, and extensible open-source Web server. Apache (version 1.3.20 included here) serves HTML pages, of course, but also makes Perl and PHP scripts available to users on the network. It's reliable and customizable.

There's documentation, too. Three commercially available books (all from O'Reilly & Associates, and with plenty of detail) ship as part of this package:

  • PHP Pocket Reference
  • Apache Pocket Reference
  • Perl 5 Pocket Reference, Third Edition: Programming Tools

Partly because the four software packages in this kit are so great, and partly because NuSphere's installation routine solves so many configuration hassles, NuSphere MySQL represents a great value. Don't hesitate to buy it if you need to bring up a Web server in a hurry. --David Wall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Super easy.
I love NuSphere. NuSphere MySQL was a snap to install. I was able to host a web page pretty much right at the start (after I got used to the directory structure and some of the features).

This was perfect for a beginner like me. Perl, apache, php and mysql work right from the start. This setup is perfect for learning Web Development and administration. I've wanted to learn Apache and php for a while, and NuSphere definitely kicks you right into it. The nice thing is you don't even need to be connected to the net to start learning. This package comes with pocket reference guides to Perl, apache, and php. Plus the big book on MySQL.

A good knowledge of Linux/Unix and command lines well is needed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worthy
Save your money. Not even as good as freeware.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hard to configure
I tried this software and couldn't create a simple database with out reading a lot and wasn't easy to configure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Web development platform and database
Lots of good stuff in this box. Good documentation. THe headliner is the NuSphere database: it is just like MySQL except it has real row-locking so it isn't SLO when multiple users are beating on it, and it has auto-crash recovery, so my beeper doesn't go off.

Install is sweet, and works remotely for headless installs. Full webserver middleware stack (Apache, nusphere MySQL, Perl and PHP) installs on Linux and windoze, even on virgen systems. If you've ever tried to get bugzilla up under windoze, you'll like this: it comes with a multi-platform bugzilla for free.

Some dba tools in the bundle, some apache stuff, but I haven't tried it. For me, its the database stupid.

Nice support but telephone is extra, you have to use email.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, great price
I purchased NuSphere MySQL directly from NuSphere after reading reviews on the internet. I first used it on Windows and was very happy. It installs very quickly with just one or two clicks, and I had a web server, database, and development environment all running. Much better than Microsoft PWS with FrontPage, and much faster.

I recently switched to Linux for my website development, and was happy to see that it worked just as well. All the same tools, fast one-click install, although the user interface was easier under Windows.

Very good organization of the files, too, making for easy backups.

Last month I purchased NuSphere PHPed, and it works very well with the NuSphere MySQL, but is more for professional developers. ... Read more

NuSphere MySQL Advantage is a suite of four open-source software packages--proven, popular, and well-supported ones--that work together to run interactive, dynamic Internet sites. Far from just a straight CD-ROM distribution of publicly available software, NuSphere has done a great job of automating the packages' installation processes (the suite installs under both Windows and Linux) so the four utilities interoperate smoothly. You can also install any or all of the suite's components manually, or compile from the included source code.

The "advantage" in this product's name refers to a subscription service that comes in addition to the CD-ROM. Every quarter for a year, NuSphere ships its registered users an update disk that contains the latest stable versions of the four packages, plus additional goodies of their choosing. You get technical support, too: Web and e-mail support for a year. A similar NuSphere product--NuSphere MySQL--consists of the same base CD-ROM, but without the update subscription and tech support.

The lesser product also lacks the enhancements that NuSphere has made to the generic MySQL distribution. Their improved product--it's called Enhanced MySQL--allows row-level locking and therefore greater transaction loads. The enhancements also make it easier to recover from crashes and to better protect your data from unwanted access. NuSphere's modifications to the core MySQL make it more suitable for big database jobs.

But is MySQL any good? Experience says it's excellent. The big boys of databases--Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft, and others--would like you to believe that only their big, expensive RDBMS products are good enough to handle your data. It's just not true. Most of the time, you'll find that MySQL--Enhanced MySQL, particularly--is entirely adequate for storing, retrieving, and reporting on your pieces of data.

Amazon.com Review

Consistently rated among the top database management systems (DBMSs) for any platform, Oracle 8i for Linux brings Oracle's renowned capacity for speedy queries to the free and flexible Linux environment. Though it's not as easy to learn and maintain as other DBMSs, Oracle will reward its devotees with solid performance and reliability. This package includes all you need to get Oracle 8i going under any version of Linux (as long as the OS is running on a machine with a chip that uses Intel's machine language). You'll be pleased with the DBMS, particularly if you plan to work with large databases and do a lot of customization with Java; the level of Java integration in Oracle 8i is fantastic.

This edition of Oracle 8i for Linux also includes William G. Page's Special Edition: Using Oracle 8/8i, which focuses more on Oracle 8 than on the Internet-centric capabilities of Oracle 8i. Still, it's a fine introduction to the Oracle way of accumulating, maintaining, and exposing data, with lots of conceptual diagrams that help clarify what goes on inside big data stores. Page's book doesn't cover installing Oracle 8i under Linux, but a separate booklet in this package provides stepwise instructions on installing, configuring, and beginning to use Oracle 8i under Linux. Another booklet offers some advice on tuning the I/O and memory-management behaviors of the DBMS in Linux. --David Wall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Kylix 2 is the best linux development system out there
This version of Kylix is better than ever !! As you probably know, Kylix is Delphi for Linux. It now allows cross platform development between Delphi 6 on windows and Kylix 2 on linux. This is best for new applications though, porting legacy delphi applications do require some rework.

The new Kylix 2 installs beautifully, I remember having install problems with Kylix 1. Kylix 2 is much more stable too. The new features are the XML transformation and SOAP and web components.

The only real need to upgrade from 1 to 2 would be for enterprise users though. For professional or open edition nothing much has changed. This is a real pity, since you have to fork out the big bucks for the enterprise. But if you have Delphi 6 the good news is that Kylix 2 Enterprise is much cheaper !

Overall it is the best linux development system out there.. Way to go Borland !! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

NuSphere Pro Advantage is precisely the same as NuSphere PHPEd Advantage, with one important difference: the version of MySQL that ships with NuSphere Pro Advantage is a NuSphere product called Enhanced MySQL, which is to say it performs faster and offers programmers greater flexibility in query design than standard MySQL.

Enhanced MySQL allows query designers to "atomize" sets of queries in such a way that the Enhanced MySQL engine--NuSphere calls it Gemini--treats them collectively as one unit. With atomization, either all of the queries in a unit are executed, or none of them are. It's a way to prevent your tables from becoming corrupted due to a crash in the middle of an execution cycle. Similarly, individual transactions are insulated from the effects of other transactions. Enhanced MySQL also--very significantly--supports explicit COMMIT and ROLLBACK commands. These allow programmers to specify when sets of queries go ahead, and when they get repealed.

Enhanced MySQL is the same product that ships with NuSphere MySQL Advantage. It's altogether better suited to applications that involve high transaction loads, and gives exclusively commercial database products--those from Oracle, Microsoft, Sybase, and others--a real challenge, particularly when you consider bang for the buck.

In addition to Enhanced MySQL, this package comes with a suite of tools and servers--installed simultaneously, if you like--that together make up a complete development and operating environment for dynamic Web sites. Included withNuSphere Pro Advantage is PHPEd, NuSphere's elegant IDE for PHP, MySQL, and various client-side languages such as JavaScript and HTML. It features an editor with context-sensitive function help and colored syntax highlighting. Tightly integrated with MySQL, the environment allows you to browse tables and their contents, and test SQL queries without switching to a different application.

The package also includes PHP, version 4.0.6. Naturally, this kit comes with a PHP interpreter. This is the actual run-time environment that reads, validates, and executes PHP scripts (those written in PHPEd and elsewhere). As a server-side scripting language, PHP is similar in function to Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) and Sun's JavaServer Pages (JSP). It's particularly potent when paired with a MySQL database like the one included here.

NuSphere Pro Advantage also comes with Perl, version 5.6.1. Perl, like PHP, can be used to generate Web pages based on form submissions and query results. Its text-manipulation facilities are probably better than PHP's, but the question of which you use is largely a matter of personal taste.

Finally, users will also get Apache, version 1.3.20. The Apache Web server makes your applications available to all browsers by responding to HTTP requests. This kit ships with the mod_perl module for running Perl scripts and the mod_ssl module for providing Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption of communications.

As is typical of NuSphere products, PHPEd Advantage comes with a set of commercially available books instead of a custom-produced manual. It's a good strategy that keeps NuSphere from having to reinvent the wheel, particularly considering that the books are all generally respected ones:

  • PHP Pocket Reference
  • Apache Pocket Reference
  • Perl 5 Pocket Reference, Third Edition
  • MySQL/PHP Database Applications

The "advantage" in this product's name refers to a subscription service that comes with the CD-ROM in the box. Every quarter for a year, NuSphere ships its registered users an update disk with the latest stable versions of the four packages, plus additional goodies of their choosing. You get technical support, too: Web and e-mail support for a year.

NuSphere Pro Advantage is the product for you if you want the PHPEd software development environment and also require the enhanced performance and transaction management capabilities of Enhanced MySQL. It's the costliest of NuSphere's line, but it's also the best, and it costs far less than some of the database servers with which it competes. --David Wall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow -- I didn't know this was possilble
Borland has done it this time. This is the only mature Linux development platform I have seen. The level of functionality is amazing for a first version, and the database connectivity is well thought out and very quick. This product may be able to revolutionize the Linux world -- allowing developers to quickly produce mature Linux based programs. I am working on a corporate project now, and with this development tool available I am seriously considering the deployment of Linux based client machines into the back-office -- thereby significantly reducing overall hardware, software, and maintenance costs.

I converted some old Delphi programs with relatively little trouble; although they were simple and I am sure more complicated programs would take some work. The lack of integrated connectivity to EJB is disappointing, but I read on the Borland web site that it will be coming later this year. In the mean time there are some work arounds to get connected to my EJB services. It is well worth the pain since I can get fast client applications from Kylix, which I can't get from Java.

Amazon.com Review

PHPEd is NuSphere's answer to the slick IDEs of the big publishers. Designed to work with several languages--HTML, JavaScript, SQL, and especially PHP--the environment works well. Its easy-to-understand interface simplifies the creation of Web applications with HTML and JavaScript on the client side, PHP as the scripting language in the middle, and a MySQL database at the back end.

PHPEd's editor has prime importance. It's clever and uncluttered, and makes three key improvements on the capabilities of a basic editor: syntax highlighting, variable listing, and real-time syntax help. This last feature is especially helpful, as each time you enter a function name the editor will unobtrusively open up a small reference window that contains a one-line syntax guide for the function. You see what the mandatory and optional arguments are, what data types the arguments must be, and what data type the function returns.

The editor is nice, but its features alone probably won't motivate many programmers to pay for PHPEd. Integrated FTP for management of remote files is nice, too, but similarly, not enough to make someone buy. What might tip the balance is the first key appeal of this IDE, its debugger. With the PHPEd debugger you can add variables to a watch list and monitor their values as they change during step-by-step execution of a PHP script. You can also hover your mouse pointer over a variable name during stepped execution and see its value in a pop-up window. In addition to step-by-step execution, PHPEd allows you to establish breakpoints in your code.

The second big attraction of this kit is its ability to integrate closely with MySQL databases. Once you open a connection to a MySQL database from within PHPEd (the database can be local or on a remote server), you can easily browse the contents of the database as you formulate your programming strategy. Then, when you're ready to start writing PHP code that actually manipulates the database, you can test your SQL sentences in a convenient window.

PHPEd is not the extent of this package, however. It ships with a set of Web servers and language interpreters that together make up the back end for which PHPEd will help you write applications:

  • PHP 4.0.6. Naturally, this kit comes with a PHP interpreter. This is the actual run-time environment that reads, validates, and executes PHP scripts (those written in PHPEd and elsewhere). As a server-side scripting language, PHP is similar in function to Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) and Sun's JavaServer Pages (JSP). It's particularly potent when paired with a MySQL database.
  • MySQL 3.23.41. An open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) that's widely used, meticulously maintained, and easily manipulated with PHP. It supports standard SQL-92, and should be familiar to anyone who has done SQL work.
  • Perl 5.6.1. Perl, like PHP, can be used to generate Web pages based on form submissions and query results. Its text-manipulation facilities are probably better than PHP's, but the question of which you use is largely a matter of personal taste.
  • Apache 1.3.20. The Apache Web server makes your applications available to all browsers by responding to HTTP requests. This kit ships with the mod_perl module for running Perl scripts and the mod_ssl module for providing Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption of communications.
As is typical of NuSphere products, PHPEd Advantage comes with a set of commercially available books instead of a custom-produced manual. It's a good strategy that keeps NuSphere from having to reinvent the wheel, particularly considering that the books are all generally respected ones:
  • PHP Pocket Reference
  • Apache Pocket Reference
  • Perl 5 Pocket Reference, Third Edition
  • MySQL/PHP Database Applications
The "advantage" in this product's name refers to a subscription service that comes in addition to the CD-ROM. Every quarter for a year, NuSphere ships its registered users an update disk that contains the latest versions of the four packages. You get support, too: Web and e-mail support for a year.

Overall, PHPEd Advantage does its job well. It establishes a solid back-end environment for Web development, and provides a good IDE for writing software. The whole solution is reasonably priced. It's a great choice if you work with PHP and MySQL. --David Wall ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Recent Win32 VB Convert
I recently decided not to upgrade my Microsoft VB6 development toolset to the latest .NET product. Basically driven by cost. I then decided to look for an IDE that could deliver similar functionality and decided upon Nusphere PHPed. This is fine product although I do not give 5 stars as I have found the debugger a little temperamental at times. In time I know this product will mature and become a valuable asset.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality PHP development tools
I was a very happy user of NuSphere MySQL when I decided to purchase PHPEd Advantage. I do consulting work for web site developers, and prefer PHP to ASP or CF.

I wanted more than a PHP debugger, which I got, but I am most happy with the debugger. It is very capable, and integrated into the editor and class browser. It compares very well to Visual C++, but I haven't used Visual .NET to compare.

Web publishing is with FTP. I have heard that the new version supports WebDAV and CVS archiving, but I haven't tried it yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Developers Tools for PHP
Powerful, flexible product. While its integrated debugger is the best I've used, it's not the only reason to buy. The editor does a good job with HTML, PHP, Perl and Javascript. The tool incorporates push-button publishing to remote sites, manages projects, provides a class browser, and is an on-line linter.

Especially nice is its direct connection to MySQL, with SQL statement checking builtin. Direct preview of PHP pages using the (integrated Apache).

Equivalent to Microsoft Visual XXX but for PHP.

Client requires windoze, but servers can be linux/unix. Frequent updates (three functionality upgrades since June). ... Read more
