MongoDB is the trusted document store we turn to when we have tough data store problems to solve. For this talk we are going to go a little bit off the path and explore what other roles we can fit MongoDB into. Others have discussed how to turn MongoDB’s capped collections into a publish/subscribe server. We stretch that a little further and turn MongoDB into a full fledged broker with both publish/subscribe and queue semantics, and a the ability to mix them. We will provide code and a running demo of the queue producers and consumers. Next we will turn to coordination services: We will explore the fundamental features and show how to implement them using MongoDB as the storage engine. Again we will show the code and demo the coordination of multiple applications.
