22.4.2 Download and Import world_x Database

As part of this quick-start guide, an example schema is provided which is referred to as the world_x schema. Many of the examples demonstrate Document Store functionality using this schema. Start your MySQL server so that you can load the world_x schema, then follow these steps:

  1. Download

  2. Extract the installation archive to a temporary location such as /tmp/. Unpacking the archive results in a single file named world_x.sql.

  3. Import the world_x.sql file to your server. You can either:

    • Start MySQL Shell in SQL mode and import the file by issuing:

      mysqlsh -u root --sql --file /tmp/world_x-db/world_x.sql
      Enter password: ****
    • Set MySQL Shell to SQL mode while it is running and source the schema file by issuing:

      Switching to SQL mode... Commands end with ;
      \source /tmp/world_x-db/world_x.sql

    Replace /tmp/ with the path to the world_x.sql file on your system. Enter your password if prompted. A non-root account can be used as long as the account has privileges to create new schemas.

The world_x Schema

The world_x example schema contains the following JSON collection and relational tables:

  • Collection

    • countryinfo: Information about countries in the world.

  • Tables

    • country: Minimal information about countries of the world.

    • city: Information about some of the cities in those countries.
