Hi to all,
I don't know Neo4J, so i read the official site. The site says that i can navigate objects with a web-based front-end.
there is a rapid way to build form for CRUD operations (web-based or desktop)?
The book explains something relative front-end building or IDE with rapid plugins?

Hi Daniele,

Welcome and hope you are finding Neo4j interesting thus far!

Neo4j is a graph database, however like many other databases, it does provide some tools to help you interact with it. Neo4j server comes with a built in web interface which allows you to run traversals, queries and quickly visualise and interact with your data though, which is what I think what you are referring to when you say that the site says that you can "navigate objects with a web-based front-end". Neo4j does not store its data as objects, but rather "nodes" and "relationships" and this is what is actually visualised in the console. If you are running a Neo4j server locally, you can get to this console by going to http://localhost:7474 in your browser.

The core product does not specifically provide any built in tools for rapid front end based applications for CRUD style apps - you would need to chose an appropriate development framework like grails or the like to get this. The Neo4j community have written and developed a vast variety of different frameworks and plugins to help developers interact with Neo4j, one being a Neo4j Grails GORM plugin which could help out with rapid CRUD like prototyping, it depends on what language and framework you are developing in. The book does have a chapter dedicated to the Spring Data Neo4j (SDN) framework, which is an object graph mapping framework aimed at helping Java devs leverage their simple POJO based object models with data backed in Neo4j.
More information about the grails plugin, SDN, as well as various other frameworks and plugins supporting Neo4j development can be found here: http://neo4j.com/contrib/

Hope this helps!
Nicki
