We are very pleased to announce the availability of Oracle NoSQL Database Release 12c (188.8.131.52.5). Please forward this announcement widely. Oracle NoSQL Database 184.108.40.206.5 adds several new features including Big Data SQL support and a RESTful API. We strongly recommend that users upgrade to this release to take advantage of these new features. These new features include: - Oracle Big Data SQL support: Oracle NoSQL Database can be queried using Oracle Big Data SQL enabling seamless, high performance integration between relational and NoSQL data. The process for connecting to the Oracle NoSQL Database from Oracle Big Data SQL is described in section "6.4 Creating an Oracle External Table for Oracle NoSQL Database" of the BDA 4.1 Software User's Guide. - New RESTful API: The latest 3.0 release of the Oracle REST Data Services adds support for Oracle NoSQL Database. This allows customers to build a REST-based application that can access data in either Oracle Database or Oracle NoSQL Database. The REST Data Services product, documentation and downloads can be found here. - New SQL-like DDL: A new declarative data definition language and API has been added to support creation and management of tables and indexes. This allows customers to more easily manage table and index creation from the CLI as well as programmatically from the application. The language reference is described in Data Definition Language for Tables. - New C Table Driver: A THRIFT-based (JNI-less) C API client driver has been added, with support for NoSQL Database tables and indexes. This allows NoSQL Database application developers to manage their NoSQL Database tables and indexes in C. It is a separately downloadable package on the same NoSQL Database OTN download page. It is available as source code and must be compiled, along with its dependent libraries. Complete instructions are included the distribution package. -More flexible MAP indexes: NoSQL Database secondary indices have been enhanced to support indexes on both the Key and Value of a MAP data-type column. This is a unique feature that allows customers to build highly dynamic, customizable indexes on application MAPs, supporting a wide array of different application data models. This new indexing capability is documented here. - Apache Hive support: You can now query Oracle NoSQL Database from Apache Hive, using HiveQL by creating a Hive External Table that uses the oracle.kv.hadoop.hive.table.TableStorageHandler class. This allows customers to improve the performance, scalability and reliability of Hive-based applications by using Oracle NoSQL Database as their non-relational database. Documentation on the oracle.kv.hadoop.hive.table package can be found here. -New Diagnostics utility: Oracle NoSQL Database has added a utility to make it easier to diagnose and troubleshoot issues, especially within the context of a distributed database system. This will make it easier for customers to gather information and work with Oracle Support. The documentation for the new Diagnostics utility can be found here.
