Using Neo4j.Driver? Now you can EXTEND it!

By Charlotte

Hot on the heels of Neo4jClient 4.0.0, I was doing some work with the Neo4j.Driver (the official client for Neo4j), and in doing so, I realised I was writing a lot of boiler plate code. So I started adding extension methods to help me, and as my extension methods became more involved, I moved them…

Neo4jClient 4.0

By Charlotte

After what probably seems like ages to you (and indeed me) Neo4jClient 4.0 has finally left the pre-release stages and is now in a stable release.

Last week, Anabranch released version 1.1 of the tools for Neo4j – which included a very welcome addition to the toolset – being able to pull data from a Neo4j instance. After doing the demo post – I noticed a peculiarity – a quirk if you will with how the ‘Execute Cypher Task’ (see here)…

Using a Data Flow to move data **from** Neo4j in SSIS

By Charlotte

That’s right everyone! We’re going from Neo4j this time, and this is a new release, the old version (1.0.0.0) didn’t have a ‘Neo4j as a Source’ component, 1.1.0.0 does. In the last post we took data from a file and ingested it into Neo4j, so far so good – but one of the things we…
