Virtual Relationships Redux

In the early part of 2016, we introduced a feature called DataMesh, also known as Virtual Relationships, or Virtual Foreign Keys. The idea behind this feature is to allow users to set up “virtual foreign keys” to relate data across tables in the same SQL database where foreign keys did not exist or were not desired, or across different SQL databases altogether. We even allowed relating a SQL database table to a MongoDB collection, opening up a whole new way for a client to retrieve all the data it needed, molded in a way that was easily consumable.
