CouchDB is a schema-free document database. But now that the NoSQL movement is in full swing, there are several document databases to choose from, so why choose Couch? Two things really set CouchDB apart from the rest: its map/reduce views and its RESTful API. Since the API is RESTful, you can easily use Couch from any platform that can talk HTTP. The benefits go way beyond that, though.
Will Leinweber is been using CouchDB exclusively for the last year and half and recently became a maintainer of the couchrest gem. Currently he's a cofounder at merge.fm which merges fans and musicians during the songwriting process. Will (infrequently) blogs at bitfission.com/, and is @leinweber on twitter.

CouchDB is NOT RESTful
There is nothing wrong with not having a RESTful API, but please oh please don't say you have one when it takes a minute to figure out that you don't. Thanks.

And java is object oriented language event though it has primitive data types.
