MongoDB is a schemaless (NoSQL), document-oriented database created by 10Gen. It touts its incredible speed and scalability, and a standout feature is its ad-hoc query capabilities. For CFML developers, it feels natural as MongoDB documents are akin to CF structures.

CFMongoDB is a light layer on top of the official MongoDB Java drivers, providing transparent datatype conversion, easy access to everything in the Java API, and a simple, CF-idiomatic DSL for querying.

Download or pull CFMongoDB from github, and view examples/gettingstarted.cfm.

Collaboration is welcome.

Last Update:

More API improvements. All tests now use the new API. Still backwards compatible


Download MongoDB from http://mongodb.org. Install and confirm it's operational by launching the Mongo Shell.

CFMongoDB Currently works on CF 9.0.1 and Railo 3.2

Warning: CFMongoDB is early days. As such, the API will change at will, without warning, when necessary.
