OrientDB Graph Edition Tutorial

· Database Zone

Here's an official tutorial  hosted on Google code on OrientDB , a NoSQL database management system written in Java.  The  tutorial covers the early steps of getting started with OrientDB, including downloading, installation, running a server, connecting to Tinkerpop, and working with the Gremlin query language.  Here's the introduction:

The Graph Edition, also called "Graph(Ed)", contains OrientDB server integrated with latest release of the TinkerPop Open Source technology stack:

  • Blueprints provides a collection of interfaces and implementations to common, complex data structures. In short, Blueprints provides a one stop shop for implemented interfaces to help developers create software without being tied to particular underlying data management systems.
  • Gremlin is a Turing-complete, graph-based programming language designed for key/value-pair multi-relational graphs. Gremlin makes use of an XPath-like syntax to support complex graph traversals. This language has application in the areas of graph query, analysis, and manipulation.
  • Pipes is a graph-based data flow framework for Java 1.6+. A process graph is composed of a set of process vertices connected to one another by a set of communication edges. Pipes supports the splitting, merging, and transformation of data from input to output.
