The time has come to use the database in Commutee. You can do it pretty easily using Spring Data Neo4j, here’s how.
It is the fourth week of work on Commutee project. Well, technically it is the fifth week, but I didn’t have much time for work on this project, so let’s pretend that it is week number four 😉
I have started thinking about the neo4j data model for all this public transport data that I have been parsing lately, and I have a big problem here…
What is Neo4j? Well, it is a database, but a different type of database, it is a graph database to be exact! And that is a really cool thing.
But what is this "graph database"? Let’s dig into it.
I did not manage to get an idea for another, third, project, so I have to choose from those two that I described before. The choice wasn’t easy because both of these projects would be fun to do. Some of you advised me already on which one of these two do, even though I’m sure that you guys would not use it ;). And I have my own preferences in terms of which app I would use daily. But let’s look at this from another perspective.
In my last post, I have described one of my ideas for a project that I could try to develop for "Get Noticed!" competition. It is something that I would use personally on daily basis, so it really makes me want to do it. If you haven’t read about it, head to part 1 to check it out. But there is also another project that I have in mind, unfortunately, this one is not so well planned as the first one. Here’s what it is about.
