MySQL sandbox

At the OpenSQL Camp, I attended a talk by Giuseppe Maxia on MySQL sandbox.

I tried it out, and it's great.
  1. Download and unpack the tarball at
  2. Obtain a mysql tarball.
  3. Run "make-sandbox /path-to-tarball/mysql-X.X.XX-osinfo.tar.gz"
  4. Run "start", which starts a mysql server.
  5. Run "use", which starts a mysql client.
Total elapsed time (starting at step 3), 12 seconds.
