Getting Started with Optic

Why Read This Guide?

Whether you are new to MarkLogic and multi-model databases or a veteran ready to accelerate your next MarkLogic project’s development, this guide will get you going.

After reading it, you will be able to

  • Query data by applying concepts similar to SQL statements like SELECT, WHERE, ORDER BY, JOIN, and GROUP BY.

  • Query and update data in efficient, scalable ways to transcend the flat world of rows and columns, unleashing true multi-model access, freely mixing graph data, full text, and even geospatial coordinates.

Since the examples and concepts build upon one another, we recommend reading the guide in order rather than skipping sections.
