MySQL Workbench 1.0.5

watch MySQL has released some days ago a new tool for Database Design. It can handle tables, stored procedures, functions, triggers and views of your existing databases (using the reverse engineering command).
Some features:
– Reverse engineering of existing MySQL databases
– Import DBDesigner4 models
– Synchronize edited model with MySQL database
– Generate SQL create script file
– Printing (Windows)
– Powrefull scripting and plugin interface. Plugins can be written in several languages, such as Lua, PHP, Java and
– Fast, OpenGL based graphical canvas
It is available for Windows, Linux and MacOSX too.
There’s also the source code free for download.
I found also a very nice Database tool, with tons of features, even if the GUI is not really usable (in my opinion): Aqua Data Studio 4.5
In these days I worked a lot with MySQL 5 and it’s new features and I found those tools very comfortable for my needs.
I hope my hosting provider (mediatemple) will upgrade mysql server too, which is still the 3.23.58!,73820,73820#msg-73820

AMFPHP 1.2 released

source site It’s not really a today news, in fact Patrick released the new version of AMFPHP on 26 of February, but I was so busy in the last weeks…
There’s a really improved service browser, here you can see a live demo, where you can test directly your methods via the web interface.
There is a final note of the author about this release:

A word of caution: I have fixed a bug with sql adapters which may have introduced some other issues. As I only have access to MySQL, these changes are largely untested except for the mysql adapter, so if you use another database, please test your functions using the service browser and report any issues my way.


Infragistics Alignment Manager For who is familiar with sizers there’s no need to explanation.
I was noticed about this component and after a quick look at the online demo I was conviced to download and try it.
I must say the component inspector ir really well done. It can remember in some way Visual Studio’s inspector for components alignment..
It allows you to easily manage your movieclips on the stage once the stage has been resized.
An example of this behavior, the way sizers work: look at Image Gallery3, navigate and try to resize the borwser window. You’ll see that all the objects on the stage change their position according with the window size…
