René Pickhardt Blogs: Neo4j, GWT and Apache Tomcat Webserver

This PhD student blogger is developing a social news stream app using Neo4j built on GWT. The most interesting part about his post is when he compares the speed of Neo4j to a MySQL database, with Neo4j: [Neo4j and GWT]

Together with sending the result via GWT over the web this was done in about 0.9 seconds!


Multiply this number with 56 and you get 9.5 seconds! And we haven’t even included sending of data and parsing in html yet.

He finishes his post by saying “I am really excited. Very seldom I was so keen on going on programming something to see further results!”
