Database programming

The need to handle increasingly larger data volumes is one factor driving the adoption of a new class of nonrelational "NoSOL databases. Advocates of NoSOL databases claim they can be used to build systems that are more performant, scale better, and are easier to program. NoSOL Distilled is a concise but thorough introduction to this rapidly emerging technology. Pramod J. Sadalage and Martin Fowler explain how NoSOL databases work and the ways that they may be a superior alternative to a traditional RCIBMS. The authors provide a fastpaced guide to the concepts you need to know in order to evaluate whether NoSOL databases are right for your needs and, if so, which technologies you should explore further. The first part of the book concentrates on core concepts, including schemaless data models, aggregates, new distribution models, the CAP theorem, and map-reduce. In the second part, the authors explore architectural and design issues associated with implementing NoSOL. They also present realistic use cases that demonstrate NoSOL databases at work and feature representative examples using Riak, Mongo0B, Cassandra, and Neo4j. In addition, by drawing on Pramod Sadalage's pioneering work, N050! Distilled shows how to implement evolutionary design with schema migration: an essential technique for applying NoSOL databases. The book concludes by describing how NoSOL is ushering in a new age of Polyglot Persistence, where multiple data-storage worlds coexist, and architects can choose the technology best optimized for each type of data access. About the Author PRAMOD J. SADALAGE, Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks, enjoys the rare role of bridging the divide between database professionals and application developers. He regularly consults with clients who have particularly challenging data needs requiring new technologies and techniques. He developed pioneering techniques that allowed relational databases to be designed in an evolutionary manner based on version-controlled schema migrations. With Scott Ambler, he coauthored Refactonng Databases (Addison-Wesley, 2006). MARTIN FOWLER, Chief Scientist at ThoughtWorks, focuses on better ways to design software systems and improve developer productivity. His books include Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture; UML Distilged, Third Edition; Domain Spec ific Languages (with Rebecca Parsons); and Refoctoring Inyroving the Design of Existing Code (with Kent Beck, John Brant, and William Opdyke). All are published by Addison.Wesley
