Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users and developers of hardware and software for Raspberry Pi. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am doing some research into using the Pi to host an iOS app. It seems like the Pi's performance as a normal web server is actually quite impressive (especially when compared to the control server used in the test).

Neo4j is an open source NoSQL graph database. I think this could be a great solution for small apps needing this kind of backend.

Has anyone installed and tested the Pi running Neo4j? Is the performance acceptable?

Neo4j requires Java so that could be an issue, however, I run Jetty on my Pi which is also Java based. Also, Oracle has a beta version of Java 8 available specifically for the Pi so that is good news also. –  HeatfanJohn Jan 18 '13 at 2:48
Note that the control server had a pretty pretty terrible spec as well. –  Jivings Jan 18 '13 at 17:10
I just installed Neo4j on my Raspberry and got big performance issues. It's so bad that i even can't perform big querrys. –  user2870388 Dec 31 '13 at 13:21
