    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

    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 These allow programmers to specify when sets of queries go ahead, and when they get repealed.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

    Amazon.com Review

    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. It supports standard Structured Query Language (SQL), and should be familiar to anyone who has 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. So, unless you have unusually tough requirements (such as an astronomical transaction load 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, enhanced by the programming languages and tools that have grown up around it. This kit includes version 3.23.41.

    PHP 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 gets 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 Perl to PHP or require its more extensive text-manipulation capabilities, this kit provides you with Perl 5.6.1. Like PHP, Perl has modules 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.

    What ties all this together is Apache, the popular, refined, and extensible open-source Web server. Apache (version 1.3.20 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:

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

    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 Advantage is a great value. Don't hesitate to buy it if you need to bring up a Web server in a hurry, require some help with the process, and plan to maintain it over time. --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.

    Save your money. Not even as good as freeware.

    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

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.

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.
