Relational databases have long been considered the one true way to persist enterprise data. But today, NoSQL databases are emerging as a viable alternative for many applications. They can simplify the persistence of complex data models and offer significantly better scalability, and performance. But NoSQL databases are very different than the ACID/SQL/JDBC/JPA world that we have become accustomed to. In this presentation, you will learn about our experience implementing a use case from POJOs in Action using popular NoSQL databases: Redis, MongoDB, and Cassandra. We will compare and contrast each database’s data model and Java API. You will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of using NoSQL.
