The idea to experiment with integrating Neo4j with Helidon came quite naturally.
Neo4j is a graph database management system developed by Neo4j, Inc. It is an ACID-compliant transactional database with native graph storage and processing. Neo4j is available in a GPL3-licensed open-source “community edition”. (Wikipedia, Retrieved 2021–02–25)
Neo4j is implemented in Java and accessible from software written in other languages using the Cypher query language through a transactional HTTP endpoint, or through the binary “bolt” protocol.
Neo4j is now the de facto standard for graph databases used by many industries.
It all started with a small chat with Michael Simons, one of the authors of Spring Data Neo4j 6 and the maintainer of Neo4j-OGM. We asked Michael his thoughts on how Helidon and Neo4J could work together. In less than an hour, Michael sent me a link to this repository with a fully functional example for Helidon MP and Neo4j SDN. Read the complete article here.
