The InfoGrid blog has started to publish a series on basic operations with graph databases. While it looks like getting a taste of graph databases was a very good start, it wasn’t meant to introduce the details of working with a graph database, something that people may not be familiar with.
So, here are the first three articles on operations with a graph database:
- ☞ Nodes
- ☞ Edges and Traversals
- ☞ Typing (from free form nodes/edges to “strongly typed” nodes/edges)
- ☞ Properties
- ☞ Identifiers
- ☞ Traversals
Traversals are the most common operations on a graph database. They are just as important for graph databases as joins are for relational databases.
- ☞ Sets (new)
Sets are a core concept of most databases. […] Sets apply to Graph Databases just as well and are just as useful:
The most frequently encountered set of nodes in a Graph Database is the result of a traversal.
I just hope the series will keep going!
