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:

 

            Console.WriteLine("Create DB:");

 

            Mongo mongo = new Mongo();

 

            mongo.Connect();

 

            IMongoCollection postsTbl = mongo.getDB("BlogDB").GetCollection("Posts");

 

 

            Console.WriteLine("Insert data:");

 

            Document post = new Document();

 

            post["Tittle"] = "Tittle1";

 

            post["Timestamp"] = DateTime.Now;

 

            postsTbl.Insert(post);

 

 

            Console.WriteLine("Queries:");

 

            Document spec = new Document();

 

            spec["Tittle"] = "Tittle1";

 

            Document myPost = postsTbl.FindOne(spec);

 

 

            Console.WriteLine("Title: " + myPost["Title"]);

 

            Console.WriteLine("Timestamp: " + myPost["Timestamp"]);

 

 

            Console.ReadLine();

 

 

Finally run the programm.
