Extract, transform, load In computing, extract, transform, and load (ETL) refers to a process in database usage and especially in data warehousing that: Extracts data from outside sourcesTransforms it to fit operational needs, which can include quality levelsLoads it into the end target (database, more specifically, operational data store, data mart, or data warehouse) ETL systems are commonly used to integrate data from multiple applications, typically developed and supported by different vendors or hosted on separate computer hardware. The disparate systems containing the original data are frequently managed and operated by different employees. For example a cost accounting system may combine data from payroll, sales and purchasing. Extract, transform, load

NOTE: This post is quite outdated, stuff has changed since i wrote this. While you can somewhat safely ignore the alterations for increased address space of entities, the Property store has changed in a fundamental way. Please find the new implementation here. Ah, the physical layer! Storing bits and bytes on spinning metal, away from the security and comfort of objects and high-level abstractions. This is the realization of any database system, the sole purpose for which it is build. Neo4j Internals: File Storage Neo4j Internals: File Storage
Atomic Wiki Higher-order functions are probably the most notable addition to the XQuery language in version 3.0 of the specification . While it may take some time to understand their full impact, higher-order functions certainly open a wide range of new possibilities, and are a key feature in all functional languages. As of April 2012, eXist-db completely supports higher-order functions, including features like inline functions, closures and partial function application. This article will quickly walk through each feature before we put them all together in a practical example. A higher-order function is a function which takes another function as parameter or returns a function. Atomic Wiki

Gremlin is a graph traversal language. The documentation herein will provide all the information necessary to understand how to use Gremlin for graph query, analysis, and manipulation. Gremlin works over those graph databases/frameworks that implement the Blueprints property graph data model. Gremlin is a style of graph traversal that can be used in various JVM languages. This distribution of Gremlin provides support for Java and Groovy.

The context data model combines features of all the above models. It can be considered as a collection of object-oriented, network and semistructured models or as some kind of object database. In other words this is a flexible model, you can use any type of database structure depending on task. Such data model has been implemented in DBMS ConteXt. The fundamental unit of information storage of ConteXt is a CLASS. Database Models: Hierarcical, Network, Relational, Object-Oriented, Semistructured, Associative and Context.
UML logo The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose modeling language in the field of software engineering. The basic level provides a set of graphic notation techniques to create visual models of object-oriented software-intensive systems. Higher levels cover process-oriented views of a system. It was developed by Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson and James Rumbaugh at Rational Software in the 1990s.[1] It was adopted by the Object Management Group (OMG) in 1997, and has been managed by this organization ever since. In 2000 the Unified Modeling Language was accepted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as a standard for modeling software-intensive systems.
