NoSQL has garnered tremendous attention in recent years as the basis of architectures for building large linearly scalable systems. As a document oriented database, Couchbase Server presents the user with a simple approach to storing and retrieving data across a cluster.
Couchbase Server 2.0 has rich querying capabilities of the distributed database through views built atop an always updating incremental map-reduce. Accessing Couchbase Server is also very easy, as there are client SDKs for Java, .NET, PHP, Ruby and many other common languages. Currently in developer preview, Couchbase Server builds upon Apache CouchDB and Memcached.
This presentation gives quick overview of Couchbase NoSQL, the ecosystem and what it means to Java developers and implementers. Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, Developer Advocate at Couchbase, will demonstrate with examples of how to use the Java APIs on Couchbase to drive home some of these concepts.
