What is new in RavenDB 3.0: Simplicity

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I’m not sure that there is a better word to describe it. We have a sign in the office, 3 feet by 6 feet that says: Reduce Friction. And that is something that we tried very hard to do. Under simplicity we aggregate everything that might aggravate you, and what we did to reduce that. That include things like reducing the number of files and assemblies we ship. Compare the 2.5 output: To the 3.0 output: We did that by removing a lot of dependencies that we could do without, and internalizing a lot of the other stuff. We went over the command
line interface of the tooling we use and upgraded that. For example, restoring via the command line is now split into a restoring a system database (offline operation for the entire server) or restoring a regular database (the server is fully online, and other databases can run during this time). In secret and without telling anyone, we have also doubled the amount of parallel work that RavenDB can do. Previously, if you purchased a standard license, you were limited to 6 concurrent index tasks, for example. In RavenDB 3.0, the standard license still has 6 cores capacity, but it will allow...(Read whole news on source site)

#1,158 – Managing using Directives, part I

As you write code, Visual Studio will let you know that you’ve used an identifier that it doesn’t know by marking it with a red squiggly underline.  Below, we’ve started creating a class that derives from Shape.  But Visual Studio tells us that it doesn’t know about Shape. The easiest way to resolve this is to try right-clicking […]

Finally Talked Kathleen Dollard into Doing the Podcast

It took more than I expected to get Kathleen to join me on the podcast. But after begging, pleading, and some honest compliments she gave in. I think it was well worth the wait! If you’re a fan of Kathleen like I am, I think you’ll enjoy her story of how her career unfolded. It all started with a cast-off NASA computer when she was growing up in Huntsville, AL. And I don’t’ think she’s ever stopped since. The Hello World Podcast is where I get to talk with some of your favorite authors, developers and speakers about
how they got started in software development. You can listen to episode 40 here:  You can subscribe to the podcast here:

What is new in RavenDB 3.0: JVM Client API

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
RavenDB has always been accessible from other platforms. We have users using RavenDB from Python and Node.JS, we also have users using Ruby & PHP, although there isn’t a publicly available resource for that. With RaenDB 3.0, we release an official Java Client API for RavenDB. Using it is pretty simple if you are familiar with the RavenDB API or the Hibernate API. We start by creating the document store:
border-left-style: none; line-height: 12pt; padding-right: 0px; background-color: #f4f4f4"> IDocumentStore store = new DocumentStore(ravenDbUrl, "todo-db"); store.initialize(); store.executeIndex(new TodoByTitleIndex());
Note that we have an compiled index as well here, which looks like this:
public class TodoByTitleIndex extends AbstractIndexCreationTask { public TodoByTitleIndex() { map = "from t in docs.todos select new { t.Title, t.CreationDate } "; ...(Read whole news on source site)

It is coming, and soon .   I’m going to talk about what is new in RavenDB 3.0 (like the posts you have seen so far, a lot has changed). Manuel will present a case study of building high scale systems, then Michael will give you a guided tour through the RavenDB internal. After lunch, we’ve Mauro talking about indexes and transformers, then I’m going to talk about the additional database types that are coming to RavenDB, and finally Judah is going to show how RavenDB speeds up your development time by a factor or two. You can register to that here.
