Using Ebean ORM with YugabyteDB

Using Ebean ORM with YugabyteDB

Ebean is a Java-based Object–Relational Mapping (ORM) application. It is more user-friendly and understandable than traditional ORM tools, such as Hibernate. It achieves this by employing a session-less design that eliminates the concepts of detached/attached beans as well as the difficulties related with flushing/clearing.

Even better, Ebean supports YugabyteDB, a 100% open source, distributed SQL database built to accelerate cloud native agility, lower costs, and reduce risks without vendor lock-in.

Automation Workflows: Using GitOps for YugabyteDB with Argo CD and Helm

Automation Workflows: Using GitOps for YugabyteDB with Argo CD and Helm

GitOps is an operational framework for declarative-driven systems such as Kubernetes. More specifically, it provides a set of best practices that converge the runtime state of the services with the declarative state defined in Git. On the other hand, Argo CD is a declarative, continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes. Argo CD follows the GitOps pattern of using Git repositories as the source of truth for defining the desired application state. Both tools can be used for automation workflows.

Distributed SQL Change Management Using Liquibase-YugabyteDB  Extension

Distributed SQL Change Management Using Liquibase-YugabyteDB Extension

Liquibase is an open source and extensible change management project that supports a variety of databases including Snowflake, MySQL, and PostgreSQL via JDBC. Liquibase allows users to easily define changes in SQL, XML, JSON, and YAML. These changes are then managed in a version control system so the changes can be documented, ordered, and standardized. For more information on the features and benefits of Liquibase, check out their documentation site.

Connecting a Spring Boot Application to YugabyteDB Managed and Deploying It to Kubernetes on minikube

Connecting a Spring Boot Application to YugabyteDB Managed and Deploying It to Kubernetes on minikube

Spring Boot is one of the most popular frameworks for building cloud native applications. It makes configuring an application easy and offers tons of starters to get you off the ground quickly. Each Spring Boot application is stand-alone and self-contained, which makes them easy to deploy in a distributed fashion – to containers or, even better, on Kubernetes.

YugabyteDB Managed (formerly Yugabyte Cloud) is Yugabyte’s DB-as-a-service and is a perfect match for Spring Boot applications,

YugabyteDB on OKE (Oracle Cloud Kubernetes)

YugabyteDB on OKE (Oracle Cloud Kubernetes)

We have documented how to install YugabyteDB on the main cloud providers (https://docs.yugabyte.com/latest/deploy/public-clouds). And when I joined Yugabyte, many friends from the oracle community asked me about the Oracle Cloud (OCI).

In the Oracle Cloud there are 2 ways to run containers:

  • Do-It-Yourself with IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)
    Obviously, you can provision some compute instances (and network and storage) running Docker and install Kubernetes (or other orchestration).

Schema Versioning in YugabyteDB  Using Flyway

Schema Versioning in YugabyteDB Using Flyway

Introduction

As developers, many of us are aware of source versioning which helps us easily track and manage changes to the source code of our applications. Schema versioning is to databases what source versioning is to the applications. It helps track and manage the changes to the databases that our applications rely on.

In this blog post, we will talk about using Flyway – one of the most popular tools that simplify schema versioning for databases –

Distributed SQL Tips and Tricks – August 18th, 2021

Welcome back to our bi-weekly tips and tricks blog where I have the pleasure of recapping some distributed SQL questions from around the Internet. I had a month long hiatus this summer, so we are making it up by adding an extra entry into this week’s edition. As always, this blog series would not be possible without all of the behind the scenes work done by Yugabeings such as Dorian Hoxha and Frits Hoogland.

Using Sequelize with YugabyteDB

Using Sequelize with YugabyteDB

Sequelize is a promise-based Node.js ORM tool that allows us to interact with databases using javascript instead of SQL. In simple terms, Object Relational Mapping is a process for accessing a relational database using object-oriented languages like javascript. For more information on the features in Sequelize, you can check out their documentation site.

Sequelize Node.js package already has support for databases like Postgres, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite, and Microsoft SQL Server.
