SlashDB automatically generates a REST API from relational databases. Database content becomes accessible to authorized web, mobile, and enterprise applications for reading and writing in convenient formats like XML, JSON, and CSV. Additionally, the HTML representation helps with browsing through data. SlashDB is capable of providing a central access point to multiple databases, effectively forming a resource-oriented architecture (ROA) consistent with databases’ schema and contents.
Integrates with Big Data
In SlashDB, related records are hyperlinked, which allows for a seamless search-engine indexing of data and provides NoSQL and graph facades over the traditional SQL databases. Related data can be lazily traversed or retrieved at once as a hierarchical XML or JSON document. Data in this form can be loaded into NoSQL document stores for joint analysis with unstructured data from other sources using big-data algorithms such as distributed MapReduce.
