The NoSQL movement is growing in relevance, attracting more and more developers. The MongoDB database is a well-recognized rising star in the NoSQL world. It is a document database that allows data persistence and enables you to query data in a nested state without any schema constraints and complex joins between documents.
This book provides all the knowledge you need to make MongoDB fit into your application schema. It starts with a basic introduction to the driver that can be used to perform some low-level interaction with the storage. Then it moves on to using different patterns to abstract the persistence layer into your applications, starting with 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 integrate MongoDB in your Java applications.
