Working with Databases and Groovy
- 30 minute talk
This talk provides a quick introduction to accessing databases with Groovy. Out of the box, Groovy puts a friendly face on Java's JDBC API via a simple higher-level API and provides a poorman's ORM capability with LINQ-like queries and lazy evaluation facilities. In addition, we'll take a very brief look at using a couple of NoSQL databases from Groovy: MongoDB (using GMongo) and Neo4J (using it's Java API and via Gremlin support).
