Roundup '12 - NoSQL
Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at http://javaposse.com
This session discusses the usage of NoSQL data stores within Java applications and the experiences developers have had resulting from that endeavor.
A conclusion seems to be that the selection of the best data store for your application is quite dependent on the type of data that you are storing: XML vs. JSON, many small items vs. large documents, relationships with sibling data items, or its volatility to aspects such as consistency, availability, and partitioning (CAP).
Another observation was that through the use of a Factory type pattern the type of underlying data store could be abstracted away from the applications. Use of JPA annotations, Mongo annotations, or identifiers for other storage types would be selected by setting a configuration switch.
