Chapter 3 MongoDB Objects

This chapter will cover the core set of data modeling concepts along with their MongoDB counterparts. We will start off with a comparison of data model, relational database, and MongoDB terminology. We will then dive into the core set of MongoDB objects, each explained within its data modeling context. Objects include documents, collections, fields, datatypes, and indexes. We will also show how to handle relationships, hierarchies, and recursion in MongoDB. This table compares terms used for each object across the data model, RDBMS, and MongoDB. We will discuss each of these terms within this chapter.
