Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone (July 11 to July 17). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Why Couchbase Chose RxJava for the New Java SDK

This blog post explains our reasoning and motivation behind choosing RxJava as one of the integral components in our new Java SDK.

2. Redis Use Patterns & the SQL Practitioner

This talk from Itamar Haber, Chief Developers Advocate at Redis Labs, took place at DevconTLV and provides an introduction to Redis use patterns, particularly compared to a relational perspective.

3. Neo4j’s Cypher vs. Clojure: Group By and Sorting

One of the points that I emphasised during my talk on building Neo4j backed applications using Clojure last week is understanding when to use Cypher to solve a problem and when to use the programming language. A good example of this is in the meetup application I’ve been working on.

4. Making the Reactive Queue Durable with Akka Persistence

Some time ago I wrote how to implement a reactive message queue with Akka Streams. The queue supports streaming send and receive operations with back-pressure, but has one downside: all messages are stored in-memory, and hence in case of a restart are lost. But this can be solved.

5. Updates to libcouchbase 2.4

If you've been following along, a developer preview version of the library was released last month. It contained a whole bunch of improvements. Now we've made some more stability improvements to the library and fixed some minor issues along the way.

Build vs Buy a Data Quality Solution: Which is Best for You? Maintaining high quality data is essential for operational efficiency, meaningful analytics and good long-term customer relationships. But, when dealing with multiple sources of data, data quality becomes complex, so you need to know when you should build a custom data quality tools effort over canned solutions.
