Replacing Oracle with MongoDB for a templating app at the Bavarian government

Bavarian government runs a document template application (RTF or ODF with Groovy, Python, Ruby or Tcl as scripting language) serving different government offices. Having complex and hierarchical data structures to organize the templates, MongoDB was selected to replace the Oracle-based persistence layer. In this talk you will hear about the improvements they have achieved with the migration to MongoDB, problems they had to solve underway and unit testing of the persistence layer in order to keep their quality level.

The talk will give Christian Brensing, Senior Developer at Rechenzentrum Süd. 12 years developing Java (JEE, Spring, Hibernate) applications, 5 years of OSGi experience, 2 years learning new concepts from Ruby.

Brensing: "Current topics I´m working on are OSGi security, MongoDB and reducing the complexity of our development stack."

Afterwards a cold one waits for you! See you in a week from Tuseday!

    Was good to hear about technical hurdles, how to get around them and let the results break the resistance to innovation.
