Introducing the DreamFactory DocumentDB Service

DreamFactory 2.4 introduces the DocumentDB NoSQL database service. Now you can easily connect to a local or remote DocumentDB database from your DreamFactory instance and perform operations using the same RESTful API that you already use for other NoSQL databases in DreamFactory.

DreamFactory version 2.1.2 just shipped. The big news in this release is application packages. The packages features makes it easy to bundle and deploy your apps, services, scripts, schema, and user roles between different DreamFactory instances. We also added virtual foreign key joins between SQL databases and MongoDB. That means you can join data between a SQL database and MongoDB with a few configuration clicks :-)

Combining Multiple Data Sources In One API With DreamFactory

Posted by Ben Busse

Wed, Dec 9, 2015

DreamFactory 2.0 allows you to hook up any number of SQL or NoSQL databases, and then you instantly get a complete REST API for each one. This information can be combined in any way that you need on the client. But sometimes you might want to combine multiple data sources on the server and return the information in a single REST API call.

This is really easy to do with DreamFactory 2.0.

NoSQL, No Problem! - MongoDB Specifics

Posted by Lee Hicks

Fri, Oct 4, 2013

LeeHicksFor the third installment on this blog series on DreamFactory Services Platform (DSP) support for NoSQL, I wanted to include a little more information on how to use MongoDB as a service. As you may or may not know, MongoDB is the leading NoSQL database currently, and while it does come with a REST interface, it is simple and has no support for CRUD operations on the data itself and is generally used for monitoring or administrative tasks. We have taken one of the native drivers available and added a fully REST-based and “blended” (see earlier post) API for collection and document (otherwise known as table and record) operations.

LeeHicksAs a continuation to my initial blog on NoSQL support on the DreamFactory Services Platform (DSP), I would like to give you a little more information on how to use the NoSQL service operations. Designed to be flexible and powerful, yet still adhere to simple REST principles, there are several options for CRUD operations available in the DSP REST API for NoSQL services.

LeeHicksYou may have already seen that DreamFactory Service Platform (DSP) supports SQL databases with its REST API, but did you know that we also support most of the popular NoSQL databases? Currently, DSPs support Amazon Web Services' SimpleDB and DynamoDB, Windows Azure's Tables, MongoDB, MongoHQ, and CouchDB.
