A Brief Guide to the Emerging World of Polyglot Persistence
Author: Pramod J. Sadalage
The need to handle increasingly larger data volumes is one factor driving the adoption of a new class of nonrelational “NoSQL” databases. Advocates of NoSQL databases claim they can be used to build systems that are more performant, scale better, and are easier to program. NoSQL Distilled is a concise but thorough introduction to this rapidly emerging technology. Pramod J. Sadalage and Martin Fowler explain how NoSQL databases work and the ways that they may be a superior alternative to a traditional RDBMS. The authors provide a fast-paced guide to the concepts you need to know in order to evaluate whether NoSQL databases are right for your needs and, if so, which technologies you should explore further. The first part of the book concentrates on core concepts, including schemaless data models, aggregates, new distribution models, the CAP theorem, and map-reduce. In the second part, the authors explore architectural and design issues associated with implementing NoSQL. They also present realistic use cases that demonstrate NoSQL databases at work and feature representative examples using Riak, MongoDB, Cassandra, and Neo4j. In addition, by drawing on Pramod Sadalage’s pioneering work, NoSQL Distilled shows how to implement evolutionary design with schema migration: an essential technique for applying NoSQL databases. The book concludes by describing how NoSQL is ushering in a new age of Polyglot Persistence, where multiple data-storage worlds coexist, and architects can choose the technology best optimized for each type of data access.
Agile is a set of values, principles, techniques, and frameworks for the adaptable, incremental, and efficient delivery of work. Big Data is a rapidly growing field that encompasses crucial aspects of data such as its volume, velocity, variety, and veracity. This book outlines a strategic approach to Big Data that will render a business Agile. It discusses the important competencies required to streamline and focus on the analytics and presents a roadmap for implementing such analytics in business.

The MongoDB database is a well-recognized rising star in the NoSQL world. It is a document database, which allows data persistence and enables you to query data in a nested state without any schema constraint and complex joins between documents.This book provides all the knowledge you need to make MongoDB fit in your application schema, at the best of its capabilities. It starts from a basic introduction to the driver that can be used to perform some low-level interaction with the storage. Then it moves to use different patterns to abstract the persistence layer into your applications, starting from the flexible Google JSON library to the Hibernate OGM Framework and finally landing on the Spring data framework.By the end of this book, you will know everything you need to use MongoDB in your Java applications.What You Will Learn- Install MongoDB and its client tools- Set up a basic project that uses a MongoDB driver and perform CRUD operations with it- Explore simple strategies for mapping Mongo documents with Java classes- Use bulk operations to speed up the creation of massive document- Design and develop a Java Enterprise application that uses MongoDB as storage- Develop and deploy an application that uses Hibernate OGM as a persistence layer for your entities- Use Spring Data and Spring Boot to leverage micro-services using MongoDB as storageWho This Book Is ForThis book is for Java developers and architects that want to learn how to develop Java applications using the most popular NoSQL solution and the use cases of it.Style and approachA simple, tutorial-like approach is used to explain the concepts contained in the book in the simplest possible way. The chapters of this book are arranged so that complexity increases progressively as you gain more experience from the earlier chapters.
