Publication Date


Document Type



This article introduces the concepts of Big Data and NoSQL and describes a semester long web-based project that uses both a relational database (Oracle 11g) and a NoSQL (MongoDB) database for an undergraduate database course. The relational database stores the record information of an online sales system and the NoSQL database stores three manuals. The semester long assignment and its implementation are available as a download.
