This blogpost describes a number of techniques, in MongoDB, for efficiently
finding documents that have a number of similar attributes to a supplied
query whilst not being an exact match. This concept of “Fuzzy” searching
allows users to avoid the risks of failing to find important information due
to slight differences in how was entered.
In the presented incarnation, these 4 solutions are MongoDB specific, but some of them could be easily generalized.
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.
