This Apache module uses a rule-based engine (based on regular expression parser) to map URLs to REDIS commands on the fly. It supports an unlimited number of rules and can match on the full URL and the request method (GET, POST, PUT or DELETE) to provide a very flexible option for defining a RESTful interface to REDIS.

Neo4j has announced the milestones 4 and 5 towards the 1.2 version which is promising quite a few interesting new features:
- support for High availability scenarios
- promote the REST API to a core component
- indexing support in the core API.
And they are delivering!
☞ Beginning with M4, I see there’s an emphasis on the Neo4j REST server. With no false modesty, I’m happy that Neo4j people have started to see what I’ve said (probably too many times before): the REST server is a much better approach than pursuing low level language integrations. And I do have a couple more ideas related to the Neo4j REST server.
The M5 is bringing the first preview of the Neo4j High available cluster. It comes in the form of a single-master/slave setup with automatic master election in case of master failure. The transition to using the Neo4j high available cluster will involve just a different implementation of the
And that’s not all. ☞ I read that there’s an ongoing effort to completely revamp the documentation, which while not lacking it was kind of barely useful being scattered around the ☞ Neo4j wiki. New home for the docs: ☞ here.
I’m starting to think that the upcoming 1.2 version will be a very important release for Neo4j.
The Neo4j graph database has been close to 1.0 for quite a while and the guys have finally decided to push out the release with the label 1.0. (nb: I have even heard rumors that the people in the Neo Technologies office were wearing suites for this release, but I am waiting for pictures to confirm it).
Now there aren’t technical details to be included with this announcement, so I’ll leave you with two videos about Neo4j: Graphs and Neo4j or a shorter interview embedded below, encourage you to take a look at some ☞ ways to get you started with Neo4j and also see all our Neo4j coverage.
In the past I’ve been asked how someone from the .NET world would be able to use any of the graph databases, considering that they are running in an embedded more. Now I think I finally have an answer: Neo4j has added lately a RESTful API and should give you access to Neo4j from any environment.
