Introducing the MySQL Document Store

Introducing the MySQL Document Store

 19 April 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM @ Ballroom F
Experience level: 
50 minutes conference


MySQL 5.7.12 includes a new Document Store feature for MySQL. The MySQL 5.7 JSON support enables an entirely new category of use cases for managing data. The Document Store functionality expands on that with a Server plugin, a new API and a suite of new components designed to make MySQL accessible for users who are not familiar with the SQL language or prefer a schemaless data store. This session gives a broad, high level introduction as to what the Document Store is about, its client components, what you can do with it, why you'd want to and how.
