So I’ve been obsessively reading about and researching CouchDB over the past couple weeks. I even wrote my
own Java client since the ones on the market weren’t up to my standards :) I’ve probably read 200 articles on
google explaining the downsides to CouchDB. I’ve read the Use Cases on Couch.io. I’ve read Jan’s book, 10
times. And still I have this one overwhelming question - what can I use it for???
I’m a java developer. I work in a large enterprise but I also do lots of home projects. At work we use Oracle with
Hibernate for Java ORM. At home I use MySQL. For attachments I use a CDN. Can anyone explain what real uses I
could use CouchDB for?
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
