Lodz, March 6th 2012 -- The Midgard Project has released the sixth maintenance release of Midgard2 10.05.6 "Ratatoskr" LTS. Ratatoskr LTS is a Long Term Support version of Midgard2 Content Repository. About 10.05 releases Midgard2 10.05 is targeted ... [More] at web framework and desktop application developers. It provides a comprehensive set of content repository APIs that can be used to build replicated information applications that share their information using a common storage layer and replication tools. In this release we provide: Content Repository API bindings for the following programming languages: C, Python, PHP and Objective-C. D-Bus signals are used to inform different Midgard2 applications about things happening in the repository, enabling for example a PHP website and a Python background process to communicate with each other. Midgard MVC, an elegant framework for PHP web applications. Midgard MVC includes interfaces for loadable components, hierarchical sub-requests, a forms system and much more. Midgard Runtime that combines the Midgard MVC, a PHP application server and a WebKit UI to provide a full Midgard web development environment on the desktop. Main changes from 10.05.5 release: Core New query interfaces Improved Postgres functionalities Many major GIR corrections Minor bugfixes See the full list PHP extension PHP 5.4 support Main changes from 9.09 releases: Improved core which supports GObject Introspection Built on top of Libgda4 Replication , quota and DBus are now optional and fully configurable Improved performance New functionalities in 10.05 releases: New reflection and introspection routines New database query interfaces New language bindings: vala and mono (C#) Midgard2 Midgard2 is a content repository. It provides an object-oriented and replicated environment for building data-intensive applications. This provides several advantages Common rules for data access mean that multiple applications can work with same content without breaking consistency of the data Signals about changes let applications know when another application using the repository modifies something, enabling collaborative data management between apps Objects instead of SQL mean that developers can deal with data using APIs more compatible with the rest of their desktop programming environment, and without having to fear issues like SQL injection Data model is scriptable when you use a content repository, meaning that users can easily write Python or PHP scripts to perform batch operations on their data without having to learn your storage format Synchronization and sharing features can be implemented on the content repository level meaning that you gain these features without having to worry about them Midgard's philosophy includes building on top of a well-known and supported GNOME libraries like glib and libgda on the system end, and connecting with popular programming languages like PHP and Python. Data storage can utilize SQLite with desktop and mobile applications, or a database server like MySQL or Postgres for web application storage. The Midgard2 platform enables developers to define a storage structure once and use it on both web and desktop applications, with the possibility of easy data replication between the two.

The new Midgard2 architecture is instead built on top of libgda, the GNOME database abstraction layer. This enables Midgard to be used with various storage engines, including: MySQL Postgres SQLite Microsoft SQL Server Oracle DB2 Built-in replication and metadata All Midgard objects are automatically equipped with a consistent set of metadata properties that can be used for access control and workflow. In addition, Midgard provides an API for serializing and unserializing stored objects in XML format that can be used for replicating data between different systems. The replication architecture can be used for staging/live web environments or mobile applications that synchronize between each other or a web back-end.

Lodz, Dec 16th 2010 -- The Midgard Project has released the first release of the third generation of the Midgard Content Repository. MidgardCR 10.12 "Hrungnir" is a technology preview of the third generation of the Midgard Content Repository. It is ... [More] released to allow developers to gain familiarity with the upcoming Midgard storage APIs and RDF storage. MidgardCR is available as a GObject-oriented C library with language bindings for multiple languages including Python, JavaScript, Scheme and Java through GObject Introspection. Content managed in MidgardCR can be stored to multiple relational databases supported by the GNOME Database Abstraction Library. Databases tested with MidgardCR include SQLite, MySQL and Postgres. Why use a Content Repository? Content Repository is a service that sits between an application and a data store. It provides several advantages to using application-specific data storage: Common rules for data access mean that multiple applications can work with same content without breaking consistency of the data Signals about changes let applications know when another application using the repository modifies something, enabling collaborative data management between apps Objects instead of SQL mean that developers can deal with data using APIs more compatible with the rest of their desktop programming environment, and without having to fear issues like SQL injection Data model is scriptable when you use a content repository, meaning that users can easily write Python or PHP scripts to perform batch operations on their data without having to learn your storage format Synchronization and sharing features can be implemented on the content repository level meaning that you gain these features without having to worry about them Key features Flexible storage definitions In previous Midgard content repository versions the content models have been defined with MgdSchema XML files loaded at application start-up. MidgardCR makes this approach more flexible by providing fully programmable interfaces for model definition. Vala example: /* Define Person class */ObjectModel person_model = new ObjectModel ("Person"); /* Define properties: 'firstname' and 'lastname' */person_model .add_model (new ObjectPropertyModel ("firstname", "string", "")) .add_model (new ObjectPropertyModel ("lastname", "string", "")); Multiple database connections Content storage and retrieval in MidgardCR is handled through Storage Managers. This approach allows multiple different databases and connections to be used within an application, and storing different types of content to most appropriate backends. Vala example: SQLStorageManager storage_manager = null;/* Create new Config which sets SQL database type and its name */Config config = new Config (); config.dbtype = "SQLite";config.dbname = "ExampleDB";config.dbdir = "./";/* Create new, named StorageManager for given Config instance */try { storage_manager = new SQLStorageManager ("test_manager", config);} catch (StorageManagerError e) { GLib.warning ("Failed to initialize new SQLStorageManager");}/* Open connection to underlying SQL database and "bootstrap" storage */try { storage_manager.open (); storage_manager.initialize_storage ();} catch (StorageManagerError e) { GLib.warning (e.message);} RDF storage and querying In addition to object storage, MidgardCR also provides APIs for storing and querying RDF triples. This makes Midgard a capable Content Repository also for Linked Data applications. RDF storage example: var rdf_vali = new RDFGenericObject ("http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person");rdf_vali.identifier = "http://www.midgard-project.org/people/vali";rdf_vali.set_property_literal ("foaf:currentProject", "http://www.midgard-project.org/");rdf_vali.set_property_value ("foaf:myersBriggs", "INTJ");rdf_vali.set_property_value ("foaf:name", "Vali");rdf_vali.set_property_value ("foaf:homepage", "http://www.midgard-project.org/people/vali"); RDF querying example: /* Query Data */var query = content_manager.query_manager.create_query_select ("foaf:Person");query.set_constraint (new SQLQueryConstraint( new QueryProperty ("http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/currentProject", null), "=", QueryValue.create_with_value ("http://www.midgard-project.org/"), null));query.validate();query.execute();GLib.print ("These people work on midgard!\n");foreach (Storable object in query.list_objects ()) { RDFGenericObject rdf_obj = (RDFGenericObject) object; var name = rdf_obj.get_property_value ("foaf:name"); GLib.print("\t%s\n", name != null ? (string) name : "Empty name");} Upcoming features The first production-ready MidgardCR release is targeted for April 2011. This release will add functionality to the library including: Workspaces support. Workspaces in MidgardCR provide a sort of branching interface on top of a relational databases. Instances of same content can live in different branches, and queries can work with a tree of branches. This allows for efficient and clean management of different workflow, data validation and temporary storage needs. PHP5 bindings through the GObject for PHP extension: https://bitbucket.org/indeyets/gobject-for-php Replication support SPARQL query interface Installing MidgardCR MidgardCR can be installed from sources with manual builds or easier, from binary packages. Instructions about installation can be found at download page http://www.midgard-project.org/download/10-12/ Contributing MidgardCR is a free software library licensed under LGPL. It is developed using the Vala language and managed on GitHub. Issues can be reported in https://github.com/midgardproject/midgard-core/issues. Developers interested in working on the MidgardCR library are free to fork the project with Git and submit pull requests to the project. There is a development mailing list available at http://lists.midgard-project.org/mailman/listinfo/dev and a #midgard IRC channel on FreeNode.
