Most of the applications have to deal with "master/detail" type of data:
breweries and beer
department and employees
invoices and items
This is necessary for example to create application view like the following:
With Couchbase, and many of the document oriented databases you have different ways to deal with this, (more...)

After some basic articles about Couchbase installation, Node.js integration. Let's now dive into a more complete example: a chat application.

An easy way to create large dataset when playing/demonstrating Couchbase -or any other NoSQL engine- is to inject Twitter feed into your database.
For this small application I am using:
Couchbase Server 2.0 Server
Couchbase Java SDK (will be installed by Maven)
Twitter4J (will be installed by Maven)
Back in March 2012 I experienced an air milage overflow: almost straight from Madrid I’ve picked a flight to Israel to speak at a Big Data conference, only to be back in Lisbon and fly again to Johannesburg in South Africa to meet several customers in the retail and manufacturing area. Back to Lisbon I packed again to London [...]

Observing the NoSQL hype through the eyes of an SQL performance consultant is an interesting experience. It is, however, very hard to write about NoSQL because there are so many forms of it. After all, NoSQL is nothing more than a marketing term. A marketing term that works pretty well because it goes to the heart of many developers that struggle with SQL every day.
My unrepresentative observation is that NoSQL is often taken for performance reasons. Probably because SQL performance problems are an everyday experience. NoSQL, on the other hand, is known to “scale well”. However, performance is often (more...)
It's been a fortnight since Log Buffer
