I am very new to mathematica but it looks like an interesting language and I would like to explore it for a future project to create a web search engine. It seems like it would be fairly well suited for this as it seems to already be powering wolfram alpha.
I was wondering if the only databases you can hook into are SQL like databases. I can't see anywhere that talks about hooking into Mongo or a graph database like Neo4j. Why is this? Does this not make sense for some reason?
Any thoughts would be great. Thanks.
So ya. If you have examples of ways to connect Mathematica to MongoDB that would be awesome. If possible I would also like to see an example of connecting it to Neo4j. (Or reasons why that would not make sense). I guess I am wondering why everything for Mathematica is being used to connect to SQL databases thus far? Is there a reason for that?
