MongoDB generation enhancement to Toad Data Modeler

MongoDB generation enhancement to Toad Data Modeler.

I wonder if we could get the development team to offer generation of MongoDB?

Hi,

support for MongoDB can be found in two other products from Toad family

Quick questions: What would you like to generate from a MongoDB model? How do you typically design MongoDB or how do you define structure for your JSON/MongoDB data?

Thanks,

Vaclav

I would want it to generate as it would SQL 2012. Being new to Toad I simply noticed that MongoDB was not offered at this time. I had a sales tech meeting with Dell and they suggested I post to see if we could get interest in developing the generator.

I will definitely be using NoSQL. I am impressed from what I have heard about performance gains of MongoDB and it seems to be the latest greatest out there. My app will be NoSQL, MongoDB, AngularJS, HTML5, jquery and json sort of mix. This is what it feels like now. I’m in the deep design now and finalizing soon then will spec the functional and UI then hand off to folks that code.

Hi Stephan,

thanks for your reply. Toad Data Modeler allows you to model SQL Server structures and generate DDL script with all the statements for creation of an empty database. In MongoDB the database structure is defined primarily by data and the database structure can be changed at any time by saving a new record to the database. In other words, there are almost no CREATE statements, there are no ALTER statements etc.

I suppose that the only possible output would be code with some sample data that should be inserted into MongoDB. Currently, Toad Data Modeler doesn’t offer that, you cannot define sample data (especially nested data) in the application comfortably.

In your case, what might be used is Universal model. It is platform independent and generates no output.

BTW: I would like to recommend your team to try the Toad Extension for Eclipse plugin. It offers really powerful MongoDB features and in the latest version also advanced JSON editor. Development of AngularJS/MongoDB/JQuery/HTML5 application in Eclipse IDE could be a good idea as the team might only need one single tool.

Regards,

Vaclav

Hi Vaclav,

Very good information.

Which eclipse should I be using? There are so many to choose from. I am using windows 10 operating system.

Thank you,
