Hadoop support for Mendix

Hi all, My company is looking to deploy a Hadoop big data store. Is there a possibility to connect my Mendix logic (SQL) to the NOSQL database of Hadoop?? Regards Mark

Mark, you cannot actually host your Mendix data set in a Hadoop instance. Mendix supports the following databases in an on-premise deployment:

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or newer
  • MySQL 5.5 / MariaDB 5.5 Oracle
  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2 or newer
  • PostgreSQL 8.4 or newer

If you're interested in importing certain data from the Hadoop store, you could look at implementing the database replication module.

If you're interested in pushing your application data to Hadoop, you should take a look at OData in Mendix 5.18+.
