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!

[MySQL]
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!
