At a Glance: Last week's NetBeans, OpenOffice and MySQL reviews


NetBeans
Blogger Sean discovered the powerful profiling engine in NetBeans, which helped him understand the memory usage and consumption of each property, method call and object instant in his program. Programming Blogs posted about integration with Project Kenai in NetBeans 6.7 Beta. Another Programming Blogs writer said the NetBeans IDE provided a Web Services Manager that supported SaaS applications and it was much easier for Java developers to access all the popular SaaS services on the web. Blogger Carl McDade tried many of the FOSS IDE’s and editors and settled on NetBeans for erlang development, then provided instructions to set up NetBeans to get syntax highlighting and debugging with detailed explanations.

OpenOffice.org
OpenOffice.org
The blogger at SoftSailor highlighted some of the program features in OpenOffice.org and says the “great advantage” of this suite is that the interface is similar to MS Office, which makes it easy for a user to “switch sides” without having to re-adapt to a completely different environment. Peter Jaques urged people to try OpenOffice.org because, “it's basically 99% compatible, and I bet you won't need Microsoft at all. Really!” Blogger Brendan Vittum wrote a tutorial on how to create a database shell in OpenOffice.org BASE, saying “users of all levels, novice, intermediate, or expert will find the collection of Wizards, Design Views, and straight SQL Views an intuitive means of creating and modifying tables, forms, queries, and reports.”

MySQL
Despite some of the concerns floating around the MySQL Conference, Linux Magazine wrote there was good news coming out of the event. The article noted the MySQL developers stated they will return to a 'release early, release often' schedule, and the pending 5.4 release has a number of features worth keeping an eye on. A writer at the MySQL Performance Blog noted that he had a chance to take a look at TokuDB and run some benchmarks. The blogger reported that tuning TokuDB was much easier than InnoDB, and that there were only a few parameters to change. Core Security Patterns Weblog discussed how enabling SSL/TLS based MySQL connections ensure trusted communication between MySQL clients and the database server. MySQL
