Designed from the ground up to support next-generation Spring Neo4j deployments

London – Oct. 13, 2015 – Neo Technology, creator of Neo4j, the world’s leading graph database, today announced the general availability of Spring Data Neo4j version 4.0, redesigned from the ground up to support the next generation of Neo4j deployments.

“Spring and Neo4j have a long and productive history,” said Emil Eifrem, CEO of Neo Technology. “Today’s release is very exciting for me personally because Spring Data has its origins in a shared vision with Rod Johnson (Spring founder and now Neo Technology’s Chairman) to make alternative database (non-RDBMS) development more seamless for Spring users. As the first Spring Data project, we are happy to announce today’s release of Spring Data Neo4j 4.0, which was one year in the making. Bringing together the convenient programming model of Spring with the power of Neo4j, Spring Data Neo4j 4.0 makes it easier than ever for enterprises to build intelligent applications leveraging data relationships.”

The new version of Spring Data Neo4j represents a major investment to provide the best experience possible for today using the dominant Neo4j and Spring architecture patterns of today. It offers advanced features to map annotated entity classes to Neo4j, supporting the well established Spring Data programming model.

The latest release of Spring Data Neo4j was built in cooperation with London-based Neo4j partner, GraphAware.

“We’ve worked with Neo Technology to create a new version of Spring Data Neo4j from the ground up with the enterprise in mind,” said Michal Bachman, Managing Director of GraphAware. “With full Spring Data compliance and integrations with other projects in the Spring ecosystem, this release means that building Spring-based, Neo4j-backed enterprise applications will be a breeze.”

Key Features in Spring Data Neo4j 4.0 include:

• New architecture optimised for today’s typical Neo4j deployment architecture
• A new Neo4j object-graph mapping (OGM) framework
• New, intuitive label-based type representation
• Object-Graph mapping of annotated POJO entities
• Utilises a Neo4j interaction layer based on Cypher
• Integration with Spring Data REST
• Extensive Spring Data Repositories support

Spring Data Neo4j is a part of the Spring Data project, which provides convenient support for Neo4j and other modern database management systems.
