I am added to a team that is using Neo4j as a datastore. After my last Neo4j experience I had to dust of my skills 🙄 I still don’t think in graphs but am getting there.
We store metadata about datasets in a graph. Using some smart logic we try to couple different datasets. For this we needed special functions like shortest path between nodes. Neo4j is great at these.
Neo4j is developed in Java and offers extensibility trough plugins. One of the plugins we plan to use is the UUID, unmutable unique identifier. This adds a solution for the evil ID used by Neo4j.
Looking forward to learning more about graphdatabases? Here are the resources I used:
