Last year was really a big year for the open source DVD Store database test kit that I co-created and co-manage with Dave Jaffe. We were talking about the DVD Store a couple of days ago and he pointed out that the DVD Store was a pretty busy place last year.
In December of 2010 (which was practically 2011) we released version 2.1 of the DVD Store which included lots of new features. Some key features were the ability to create any size DVD Store database, a driver program that can put load against multiple DVD Store databases at the same time, and some wizards that make it easier to install and get running.
Dave also put together a couple of videos that show the complete process of getting the DVD Store up and running on SQL Server and MySQL.
In December we added support for PostgreSQL/vPostgres database type. This means that the DVD store now supports four database types - SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, and PostgreSQL/vPostgres.
The DVD Store is a fun project to work on and it is great to continue to see it used across the industry by many different people in a variety of tests. Let me know if you have any questions or requests for new features.
