I was in my last week at my current company and the Spring Boot based microservices we had were producing tons of logs now, because hey, the application worked! ;)

Apparently, grepping the logs wasn’t proving to be the best utilisation of our time. So, I thought I’ll gift my team with the ELK stack for debugging logs before I move out.

I looked up for the easiest and stable way to set up ELK and came across this already packaged Docker image of ELK. You can find it’s documentation here and the codebase here.

This setup is great, it…

As Wikipedia defines it:

A view is the result set of a stored query on the data, which the database users can query just as they would in a persistent database collection object. This pre-established query command is kept in the database dictionary…


Once upon a time, no, actually yesterday, I was working on a project where we faced a problem that got me thinking, why do relations matter.. even in Database!

Okay, let me tell you the problem first. I had to store multiple sets of tuples, each corresponding to it’s type associated with a key in a relational database.

Overwhelmed? Don’t worry, the image below will hep you understand.
