Data Modeling for MongoDB Building Well-Designed and by Steve Hoberman

By Steve Hoberman

Congratulations! You accomplished the MongoDB software in the given tight time frame and there's a celebration to have fun your application's unlock into construction. even though everyone is congratulating you on the social gathering, you feel a few uneasiness inside of. to accomplish the venture on time required creating a lot of assumptions in regards to the facts, comparable to what phrases intended and the way calculations are derived. furthermore, the bad documentation in regards to the software can be of constrained use to the aid workforce, and never investigating the entire inherent principles within the facts could ultimately result in poorly-performing buildings within the not-so-distant destiny.

Now, what should you had a time computer and will return and skim this ebook. you are going to examine that even NoSQL databases like MongoDB require a few point of information modeling.
Data modeling is the method of studying in regards to the facts, and despite know-how, this method needs to be played for a winning application. you'll examine the worth of conceptual, logical, and actual information modeling and the way each one level raises our wisdom of the information and decreases assumptions and negative layout decisions.

Read this publication to profit the best way to do info modeling for MongoDB functions, and attain those 5 objectives:

  1. Understand how facts modeling contributes to the method of studying in regards to the info, and is, for that reason, a required process, even if the ensuing database isn't really relational. that's, NoSQL doesn't suggest NoDataModeling!
  2. Know how NoSQL databases fluctuate from conventional relational databases, and the place MongoDB fits.
  3. Explore every one MongoDB item and understand how every one compares to their info modeling and standard relational database opposite numbers, and examine the fundamentals of including, querying, updating, and deleting facts in MongoDB.
  4. Practice a streamlined, template-driven method of acting conceptual, logical, and actual information modeling. realize that facts modeling doesn't regularly need to result in conventional info models!
  5. Distinguish top-down from bottom-up improvement methods and whole a top-down case learn which ties the entire modeling ideas together.

This publication is written for an individual who's operating with, or should be operating with MongoDB, together with enterprise analysts, information modelers, database directors, builders, undertaking managers, and information scientists. There are 3 sections:

  • In part I, Getting Started, we are going to display the facility of knowledge modeling and the tight connections to information versions that exist while designing any kind of database (Chapter 1), examine NoSQL with conventional relational databases and the place MongoDB matches (Chapter 2), discover every one MongoDB item and understand how each one compares to their information modeling and standard relational database opposite numbers (Chapter 3), and clarify the fundamentals of including, querying, updating, and deleting information in MongoDB (Chapter 4).
  • In part II, Levels of Granularity, we conceal Conceptual facts Modeling (Chapter 5), Logical information Modeling (Chapter 6), and actual info Modeling (Chapter 7). realize the "ing" on the finish of every of those chapters. We specialise in the method of establishing every one of those types, that is the place we achieve crucial company knowledge.
  • In part III, Case Study, we'll clarify either most sensible down and backside up improvement ways and plow through a most sensible down case research the place we begin with enterprise standards and finish with the MongoDB database. this situation research will tie jointly the entire concepts within the prior seven chapters.

Nike Senior info Architect Ryan Smith wrote the foreword. Key issues are incorporated on the finish of every bankruptcy so that it will make stronger strategies. furthermore, this booklet is loaded with hands-on workouts, besides their solutions supplied in App A. App B includes the entire book’s references and App C the

Modular Ontologies: Concepts, Theories and Techniques for Knowledge Modularization

This ebook constitutes a suite of study achievements mature sufficient to supply a company and trustworthy foundation on modular ontologies. It offers the reader an in depth research of the cutting-edge of the study sector and discusses the hot innovations, theories and strategies for wisdom modularization.

Advances in Object-Oriented Data Modeling

Until eventually lately, info structures were designed round various enterprise features, reminiscent of bills payable and stock keep an eye on. Object-oriented modeling, against this, constructions platforms round the data--the objects--that make up many of the enterprise services. simply because information regarding a specific functionality is proscribed to 1 place--to the object--the process is protected from the results of switch.

Introduction To Database Management System

Designed in particular for a unmarried semester, first direction on database platforms, there are four points that differentiate our e-book from the remaining. simplicity - typically, the know-how of database platforms could be very obscure. There are

Example text

This means that a Student Number cannot exist in Attendance without having this Student Number first exist in Student. A Class ID cannot exist in Attendance without having this Class ID exist in Class. However, in MongoDB, if Attendance is a collection with a Student Number reference to Student and a Class reference to Class, there are no checks to ensure the Attendance Student Numbers and Class IDs point back to valid values in the Student and Class collections. SECONDARY KEY Sometimes there is a need to retrieve data rapidly from a table to answer a business query or meet a certain response time.

Documents are relatively easy to partition across multiple servers. MongoDB can automatically balance data across servers and redistribute documents, automatically routing user requests to the correct machines. When more capacity is needed, new machines can be added, and MongoDB will figure out how the existing data should be allocated to them. This figure illustrates the systems architecture difference: 1. Lots of drivers! A driver is a translator between a program and a platform (the platform in this case being MongoDB).

If a candidate key value changes, it creates data quality issues because there is no way to determine whether a change is an update to an existing instance or a new instance. Minimal. A candidate key should contain only those attributes that are needed to uniquely identify an entity instance. If four data elements are listed as the composite candidate key for an entity but only three are needed for uniqueness, then only those three should be in the key. For example, each Student may attend one or many Classes, and each Class may contain one or many Students.
