Option #1: Changing a ySQL Table Structure

Using the world x database you installed in odule 1 and your ySQL Workbench, create a new table named “independence” with the following attributes (columns):

  • field named “id” which has data type auto increment,
  • field named “country name” which has data type varchar(50), and
  • field named “independence date” which has type “date.”

fter you create the table, run the following SQL command:

IN ERT INTO independence(contry name, independence date)

VALUE (‘United  tates’,’1776-07-04’)

ubmit a 1-page Microsoft Word document that shows the following:

  • The QL command you used to create the “independence” table and a list of the rows in the “independence” table.
  • Explain the purpose of the field named “id.” Why do you not have to include it in an insert statements? How would change the incrementing value to a number greater than one?

Option #2: Changing a MySQL Table Structure

Using the classicmodels database you installed in Module 1 and your MySQL Workbench, add a JSON field named “customers_contacts” to the customers table with the following keys:

  • customerNumber,
  • contactLastName, and

Write a SQL statement to insert at least three values for the “customers contacts” field. Use data from the customers table. If you need a hint on how to write the SQL insert statement for a JSON data type, refer to theexamples in http://www.mysqltutorial.org/mysql-json/.

Submit a 1-page Microsoft Word document that shows the following:

  • The SQL command you used to insert data into the “customers contacts” field and a listing of rows from the customertable where the “customers contacts” column has data.
  • What is JSON? What are the advantages of using JSON as a field type? What are the disadvantages of using JSON as a field type?

Option #1: Integrating ySQL Table Data with a Python Script

In this assignment, you will write a Python script to increase the population of each city in the world x database by 10% (rounded).

First, add a new column to the world x city table using the following MySQL command:

  • LTER T BLE `world x`.`city` DD COLU N `Population` DOUBLE NULL DEFAULT NULL AFTER `Info`;

The existing population data are stored as JSON datatype in the city table in a field named Info. You learned about JSON data types in Module 2. To obtain the population data from the Info column in the city table, run the following My QL command:

  • select info->’$.Population’ from city

Your Python script should do the following:

  • Copy the population data from the Infocolumn into the Population column,
  • Increase the population by 10% in the Populationcolumn, and
  • List the population before the increase and the population after it was increased.

Submit your Python script and Python script output as two separate text files included in a zip file. Submit your zip file to the Module 6 folder. Provide a detailed technical report on the steps needed to integrate Python and MySQL. In addition, provide details on how you iterate through a JSON field in a Python script.
