Debugging MySQL Stored Routines

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Core Lab]

The release of MySQL 5.0 was marked by the introduction of stored routines (procedures, functions and triggers) support. This was a huge milestone for the popular database company, which made it possible to use MySQL databases in complicated business projects. However, even the most recent versions of MySQL do not provide facilities for debugging stored routines or API for controlling stored code. The only way to debug a stored program with MySQL 5.x is to manually fill it with tracing instructions that save messages in a table on the server. Such a debugging process is uncontrolled and non-interactive. This paper will present a new debugging solution, which overcomes this limitation of MySQL and allows developers to conveniently debug stored routines, making the MySQL development process more comfortable and more effective.
