Getting started with MongoDB
Michael wrote in his post about beauty of MongoDB.
I tried to run a couple lines of code and found it very easy to get started with.
There are steps to get there:
1. Download binaries. I used version 1.2.3 for Win32
2. Create the data folder C:\data\db
3. Run mongod.exe
At this step you have MongoDB running.
4. Download C# driver
5. Create a console application with Visual Studio
6. Add references to driver's dlls
Now you are ready to write code.
I just copies a lines of code from Michale's post into Main method and added console output:
Mongo mongo = new Mongo();
IMongoCollection postsTbl = mongo.getDB("BlogDB").GetCollection("Posts");
Document post = new Document();
post["Tittle"] = "Tittle1";
post["Timestamp"] = DateTime.Now;
Document spec = new Document();
spec["Tittle"] = "Tittle1";
Document myPost = postsTbl.FindOne(spec);
Console.WriteLine("Title: " + myPost["Title"]);
Console.WriteLine("Timestamp: " + myPost["Timestamp"]);
Finally run the programm.
