MongoDB on the Java Virtual Machine

Thursday, 24th November at The Skills Matter eXchange, London

This meetup is run by Skills Matter In The Brain. Starts at 6:30 PM.

MongoDB on the Java Virtual Machine

Brendan McAdams explores the relationship between the MongoDB database and languages on the Java Virtual Machine such as Java, Scala, Clojure, JRuby and Python as well as the challenges posted getting MongoDB to play nice with these tools and their syntax.

MongoDB and the Java programming language boast a deep affinity; but the places where MongoDB is proving strongest are on Java’s Virtual Machine... (JVM) itself rather than the Java language.

This talk explores the deeper relationship between the MongoDB database and various languages on the Java Virtual Machine such as Java, Scala, Clojure, JRuby and Python as well as the challenges posted getting MongoDB to play nice with these tools and their syntax. Also examined will be frameworks and integration points popular between MongoDB and the JVM such as Spring Data, Morphia and Lift’s MongoDB-Record component.
