Spring always provided sophisticated support for various Java data access technologies. The lately coined Spring Data project now takes the next step and introduces a consistent programming model for non-relational data stores and helps implementing data access layers in a consistent and easy-to grasp fashion - for both the NoSQL stores as well as more traditional APIs like JPA. The talk introduces the umbrella project, foundational concepts and abstractions, and dives down into the specialties of particular modules using MongoDB as example.

The NoSQL movement has stormed onto the development scene, and it’s left a few developers scratching their heads, trying to figure out when to use a NoSQL database instead of a regular database, much less which NoSQL database to use.
