Andrew Oliver, a regular author over at InfoWorld and occasionally at DZone too, has been using a CRUD application for testing a variety of cutting edge technologies.  It's called "Grandma's Address Book," and this week he tried building it with the Neo4j graph database.  The results were excellent, since the relationships that need to be indicated in the address book are perfect for a graph system.

Check out the article to see how this simple app worked so well and much more efficiently than a JPA version.
