Chapter 2. Querying and Indexing in Neo4j

From what we learned in the previous chapter, we can say that while a relational database can be used to obtain the average age of all the people in a room, a graph database can indicate who is most likely to buy a drink. So, the utility of graph databases in the information age is vital.

In this chapter, we are going to take a look at the querying and indexing features of Neo4j and focus on the following areas:

  • The Neo4j web interface

  • Cypher queries and their optimization

  • Introduction to Gremlin

  • Indexing in Neo4j

  • Migration techniques for SQL users
