Integrating MySQL 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:

  • ALTER TABLE `world_x`.`city` ADD COLUMN `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 MySQL command:

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

Your Python script should do the following:

  • Copy the population data from the Info column into the Population column,
  • Increase the population by 10% in the Population column, 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.
