Entity Relationships in a Document Database at CouchConf Boston

by Bradley Holt

Published May 15, 2012 in Technology

Unlike relational databases, document databases like CouchDB and Couchbase do not directly support entity relationships. This talk will explore patterns of modeling one-to-many and many-to-many entity relationships in a document database. These patterns include using an embedded JSON array, relating documents using identifiers, using a list of keys, and using relationship documents.
