You may have heard that the JVM team at 10gen is working on a 3.0 version of the Java driver. We’ve actually been working on it since the end of last year, and it’s probably as surprising to you as it is to me that we still haven’t finished it yet. But this is a bigger project than it might seem, and we’re working hard to get it right.
So why update the driver? What are we trying to achieve?
Well, the requirements are:
- More maintainable
- More extensible
- Better support for ODMs, third party libraries and other JVM languages
- More idiomatic for Java developers
