I think of NoSQL as a gigantic Scripting.Dictionary from the Olden Days of Visual Basic. Except I can't find out what keys are there. And there's some kind of magic going on under the hood that may-or-may-not get all my nodes synced up with one another.

NoSQL and RDBMS are as different as Apples and Footballs. Two different problem domains - and both solve their intended appointments well, when used correctly.

Every few years there's a new database gimmick. Ten years ago it was "XML Databases" and "Object Databases" - but the salespeople I spoke with trying to sell them to my company was trying to convince me that they would replace traditional RDBMS like MS SQL Server, Oracle and the like. A decade later and now we've got NoSQL "databases" which are great for caching, but not really great for replacing your RDBMS.

I say, "Use Only as Directed" and you'll be fine.

About distilling your SQL::Abstract 'statements' into keys and caching the results from the RDBMS in a NoSQL database, keyed by some kind of hash of those SQL::Abstract statements - that's a great plan. So long as your data doesn't change much, otherwise you'll be playing whack-a-mole with cache invalidation.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
