My thanks to 28.io for sponsoring myNoSQL two consecutive weeks to promote their work on a query platform for MongoDB based on the open JSONiq spec.
Document or schema-free or JSON databases have brought up an interesting challenge to API and query designers. Pretty much everyone in the NoSQL space is using their own query language, while many are suggesting going back to SQL—which even if interesting would probably take a lot of work and bring new corner case inconsistencies to SQL. The promise of a common query language for JSON databases sounds interesting and we’ll see who gets it. With its current backing, Oracle, EMC, IBM, 28.io, JSONiq is indeed a strong contender.
