Neo4j in Actionby Jonas Partner
Synopses & Reviews
Neo4j in Action is a comprehensive guide to Neo4j, aimed at application developers and software architects. Using hands-on examples, you'll learn to model graph domains naturally with Neo4j graph structures. The book explores the full power of native Java APIs for graph data manipulation and querying.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
About the Technology
Much of the data today is highly connected—from social networks to supply chains to software dependency management—and more connections are continually being uncovered. Neo4j is an ideal graph database tool for highly connected data. It is mature, production-ready, and unique in enabling developers to simply and efficiently model and query connected data.
About the Book
Neo4j in Action is a comprehensive guide to designing, implementing, and querying graph data using Neo4j. Using hands-on examples, you'll learn to model graph domains naturally with Neo4j graph structures. The book explores the full power of native Java APIs for graph data manipulation and querying. It also covers Cypher, Neo4j's graph query language. Along the way, you'll learn how to integrate Neo4j into your domain-driven app using Spring Data Neo4j, as well as how to use Neo4j in standalone server or embedded modes.
Knowledge of Java basics is required. No prior experience with graph data or Neo4j is assumed.

Table of Contents
PART 1 INTRODUCTION TO NEO4J
PART 2 APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT WITH NEO4J
PART 3 NEO4J IN PRODUCTION
Neo4j is one of the most prominent open source graph databases available. It allows developers to persist data more naturally from domains such as social networking and recommendation engines, where representing data as a graph of interconnected nodes is a natural choice. Neo4j significantly outperforms relational databases when querying graph data and it supports large data sets while preserving full transactional database attributes.
Neo4j in Action is a comprehensive guide to Neo4j that uses hands-on examples to show how to model graph domains naturally with Neo4j graph structures. The book explores the full power of the native Java APIs for graph data manipulation and querying. It also covers Cypher - declarative graph query languages developed specifically for Neo4j. In addition to the native API, this book provides a practical example of integration with the popular Spring framework.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning.
