mysql_schema_bulk_change

DESCRIPTION:

This extension to the MysqlAdapter in ActiveRecord enables bulk updates to schema definitions.

Pr. default when calling connection#add_column the change will be executed a once, but Mysql allows for multiple changes to be executed in one SQL statement (dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/alter-table.html). The advantage of this is that it takes a lot less time, especially if the table is large.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Bulk updates to schema definitions when using connection.change_table do |table|

  • Use the old approch using change_table_direct

SYNOPSIS:

In a migration:

change_table :large_table do |t|
  t.string :name
  t.column :name, :string
  t.index :name => 'index_on_name'
  t.remove_index :name => 'index_on_author'
  t.remove :auhor_id, :editor_id
end

REQUIREMENTS:

  • ActiveRecord 2.3.2

  • Mysql

  • RSpec for testing

INSTALL:

  • sudo gem install mysql_schema_bulk_change –source gemcutter.org

TEST:

Create a database called kjeldahl_mysql_schema_bulk_change_test

mysqladmin -u root create kjeldahl_mysql_schema_bulk_change_test

Run rake

rake
