Hi

MongoDB looks to me like it would be a perfect fit for Composite C1. Does anybody share this opinion?

Many thanks

do you know how good the Linq support is for MongoDB?

In the official c# driver, none at the moment.

However, other drivers have some support for LINQ, though there isn’t really a concept of join in Mongo…..

Cheers

Tony

At the lowest level everything that speaks Linq can be a Dataprovider in C1. And even if MongoDB doesn't speak it fluently you always have the option of loading data into memory and falling back to Linq for Objects using the System.Linq.Enumerable class http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.linq.enumerable.aspx.

Do you have a special business case for this or is it just something that could be fun to do? :)
