Version 5.6.2-m5 Boolean Datatype in MYSQL

0 votes

I 've just created some tables that I designed using the MySQL Workbench Model. However, the database type BOOLEAN which was in my models has been converted to TINYINT(1); I'm currently running MySQL Version 5.6.2-m5 on Windows 2008 server.

Any ideas why this has been removed ?

Like the link states

"For clarity: a TINYINT(1) datatype does NOT ENFORCE a boolean value data entry. For instance, it's still possible to insert a value of "2" (any integer up to the TINYINT max value). I personally don't see the added value of a 'BOOLEAN' synonym type which infact behaves unlike a boolean should."

Has BOOL, BOOLEAN been taken out of MySQL 5.6 ?

This is exactly the same behavior that MySQL has had for over a decade. Nothing has been added or removed since release 4.1.0 (2003-04-03)

Also, why are you using a pre-release (milestone) version of 5.6 when the full release (GA) versions of 5.6 are available?

Using Workbench with MySQL 5.6 how do I edit a existing Trigger. Do I need
to DROP the Trigger and create a new one ? If that is the case how can you
run start command in a live environment ?

The MySQL 5.7 changelog mentions:
"Beginning with MySQL 5.7.2, UPDATE_TIME displays a timestamp value for the last UPDATE, INSERT, or DELETE performed on InnoDB tables. Previously, UPDATE_TIME displayed a NULL value for InnoDB tables. For MVCC, the timestamp value reflects the COMMIT time, which is considered the last update time. Timestamps are not persisted when the server is restarted or when the table is evicted from the InnoDB data dictionary cache."

This is great news! However, I would in fact need the UPDATE_TIME to persist across database server resets. Is this feature being considered or discussed? Where might I find it online?

I have the following script however when the clipboard contents are greek letters it fails to print them right.
I have used all posible encoding for greek letters including utf8 but to no avail so i just stay with latin1.

Can you suggest a solution?

Here is the script:

import win32clipboard
data = win32clipboard.GetClipboardData()
data = data.decode('latin1')
send = 'ccc|=:='+data
print data
print send
