JasperSoft announces reporting support for Hadoop and leading NoSQL databases.
We talk with Daniel Kirstenpfad, founder and CTO of sones GmbH, about Graph Databases and how they can better model some types of data such as relations in a social networking application. A graph database can offer performance benefits over other types of databases because they explicitly represent a graph and are organized to have index free adjacency.
After several years of development, the developers from NeoTechnology have released version 1.0 of Neo4j, a Java-based graph database which follows the property graph datamodel. InfoQ spoke with NeoTechnology COO Peter Neubauer to learn more about the current Neo4j release and what it offers to developers.
