Starting with MySQL 5.7 it is now possible to use MySQL as a schemaless Document Store. In addition, using the new X DevAPI it is possible to work with Documents via either a CRUD interface or a traditional SQL interface. This presentation will describe the key concepts of the Document Store, including collections, X DevAPI and advances in the new X Protocol.
