A Survey of Graph Databases for the Java Programmers


Jasper Pei Lee provides an overview of the following graph databases from the perspective of the Java developer: Neo4j, InfiniteGraph, DEX, InfoGrid, HyperGraphDB, Trinity, AllegroGraph:

Graph Databases for the Java Programmers

His review is similar to the Quick Review of Existing Graph Databases, but stays focused on using these graph databases from a Java environment, this making it less generic than the NoSQL Graph Database Matrix.

The only part that I didn’t understand is the closing:

High-performance and distributed deploy are supposed to be supported by all products.

Without qualifying what high-performance means is difficult to assess if all reviewed products are on par[1]. And scaling graph databases is far from being a solved problem.

  1. AllegroGraph takes pride in breaking records related to the number of stored triples, while others are focused on access speed, or reliability.
