Neo4j getting a JDBC driver before MongoDB is a surprise. Rickard Öberg:
When it comes to NOSQL databases, one of the key advantages is that they allow you to structure your data in a way that better resembles your domain, and also allows you to use query languages where you can express things that are either really awkward or slow with SQL. However, one of the advantages that relational databases have is that they can be accessed from lots of tools using JDBC, as a standard API. So what would happen if a NOSQL database, like Neo4j, also had a JDBC driver? I decided to find out!
If this catches up, the next step is adding a non-HTTP protocol to Neo4j server.
MongoDB is the NoSQL database with the richest querying model which resembles SQL. ↩
