In an exciting revelation for developers, Oracle has announced that MySQL database servers now support executing JavaScript functions and procedures directly within the database. This new JavaScript capability, currently available in preview mode for MySQL Enterprise Edition and MySQL Heatwave users, enables developers to embed sophisticated data processing logic natively inside the database itself.

Oracle’s groundbreaking move to enable JavaScript functions and procedures within MySQL represents a major game-changer for developers. By empowering coding directly in JavaScript for complex in-database computations, Oracle has radically expanded the possibilities for efficient and innovative data management and analysis using MySQL databases.

It is pertinent to mention that MySQL’s support for JavaScript-stored programs removes previous limitations in application design imposed by moving data back and forth. Developers can now implement sophisticated in-database data processing logic in JavaScript without shuttling data outside of MySQL. Oracle highlighted use cases enabled by JavaScript-stored programs, including data extraction, formatting, validation, compression, encoding, and transformation directly within MySQL.

For example, developers can now convert a column of strings into a sparse matrix representation through in-database JavaScript, bypassing prior restrictions that forced suboptimal data movement just to execute advanced processing.

Moreover, developers can now implement sophisticated capabilities like data extraction, transformation, validation, formatting, approximate search, compression, and more entirely within MySQL databases by using familiar JavaScript.

Considering JavaScript’s immense popularity as the most widely used programming language globally, this integration unveils MySQL’s capabilities for countless developers. Per Stack Overflow’s 2023 Developer Survey, JavaScript leads as the number one language among developers, ahead of HTML/CSS, Python, and SQL. By embracing JavaScript, MySQL empowers developers worldwide to create the next generation of data-driven applications.
