Oracle Open World: MySQL Management Plug-in and Grid Control Extensibility?

Posted in: MySQL, Technical Track

In case you are attending Oracle Open World 2008, the biggest Oracle conference in the world, and interested in either (or both) MySQL or Oracle Enterprise Manager Extensibility — I posted a proposal for a new presentation:

Extending Oracle Enterprise Manager by Example — Creating MySQL Management Plug-In

I’ve started looking into Oracle extensibility several years ago and since then I’ve seen lots of improvements in Extensibility Guide and many new plug-ins have seen the light of the day. However, creating a new plug-in is still considered to be something special and not available to mere mortals.
In this presentation we will see how easy it is to create a new plug-in. What are the steps and the method to follow. As an example we will work with MySQL Management Plug-in that I have recently released to public.
This session includes a live demo.

If you are interested, you may as well vote for it. If there are enough interested people, Oracle might select it for the conference.

If neither this nor my previous submission make it, well, I’ll go there anyway to have some fun and meet good old and, hopefully, new friends.

Please note: This plug-in has been created and is now available for download:
