CRUD Operations using MongoDB NoSQL
Unlike relational databases, NoSQL databases such as MongoDB store data as collections of fields, rather than rows and columns. It mimics the way humans think of objects and provides a smooth interface for applications that are object-oriented. Each ‘object’ is stored in JSON format in a data structure called a Document. The Document may represent a single word and its definition for example. A Document is stored in a Collection, which contains one to many Documents. The MongoDB database then contains one to many Collections. In this course, you will create a MongoDB database collection containing words and their definitions. You will then retrieve data from the collection, update data, remove document data from the collection, and finally delete a document, a collection, and a database.
