RavenDB vs MongoDB: Which is Better? This White Paper compares the two leading NoSQL Document Databases on 9 features to find out which is the best solution for your next project.  

I have been investigating the LevelDB project for the purpose of adding another storage engine to RavenDB. The good news is that there is a very strong likelihood that we can actually use that as a basis for what we want.

The bad news is that it is insanely easy to get LevelDB to compile and work on Linux, and appears to be an insurmountable barrier to do the same on Windows.

Yes, I know that I can get it working by just using a precompiled binary, but that won’t work. I actually want to make some changes there (mostly in the C API, right now).

This instructions appears to be no longer current. And this thread was promising, but didn’t lead anywhere.

I am going to go over the codebase with a fine tooth comb, but I am no longer a C++ programmer, and the intricacies of the build system is putting a very high roadblock of frustration.

Do you pay to use your database? What if your database paid you? Learn more with RavenDB.
