NoSQL? Have It Your Way!

Presented at JavaOne 2017

The future of data persistence is polyglot, and this future is now. Although SQL used to be the lingua franca of database access, newer NoSQL data stores each come with their own API and query language.

This session explores the approaches Java developers have for accessing NoSQL stores, from native APIs over lightweight abstractions to object mapping libraries. What do you favor, full flexibility or easy portability and reuse of known persistence APIs? When is an object mapper the right tool for the job, and how does event streaming fit into the picture? And are there any emerging standards?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but the presentation will prepare you to ask the right questions and find good answers, depending on your needs.
