Application Development: MongoDB Native Driver for Node.js Speeds Up Results
Recently, 10gen released the official MongoDB Native NodeJS Driver. eWEEK Labs put the driver to the test, and found that it was easy to use and very fast. The coding requires an approach typical of Node.js programming, whereby callback functions are provided to support the asynchronous nature of both Node.js and MongoDB. Using the straightforward API, we were able to perform standard database operations, such as inserts and queries. With proper indexing, we found that the operations were extremely fast. Additionally, the installation is simple with only a couple of lines of commands in the Linux shell, and the documentation is extensive.
