couchDB and the iOS environment

Posted in iPhone development tagged , , , , , , at 8:16 pm by tetontech

Recently I got a ping from a QuickConnect user regarding connecting to couchDB. For those that don’t know couchDB is a document storage database. It is written in Erlang and, if I remember correctly, uses the Mnesia a database written in Erlang. couchDB also uses the HTTP protocol and JSON for communication.

As I went back and spent a few minutes with couchDB again I realized that the Objective-C version of the QCFamily Enterprise Data Sync feature that I will be presenting at the iPhoneDevCon on the 27th – 30th of September, 2010 needs only minor modifications to work with couchDB. I hadn’t thought of this before and was pleased that with these minor modifications couchDB could be added to Oracle, MySQL, and other relational databases that are supported.

Too much fun!
