I am trying to determine if a graphing database like Neo4j would be useful for the following:
I have created a standard SQL database to manage tested relationships between software versions. The system works by using a recursive process to test the versions of Product
A to Product
B to determine if a tested compatibility exists. This is simple to do if there are only 2 products. If however as is the case with many systems there may be 10 or more different software components to test together as a group. Tested relationships must be satisfied for all items.
An example may help. If there are 3 products
C each having many versions then a solution may be
Product A, version 10 is tested against Product B.v20, etc.. Not all products are tested against all. In this example
A is tested to B, B is tested to C and C is tested to A. The complete solution may be:
A.v10 -> B.v20, B.v20 -> C.v30, C.v30 -> A.v10
There may be many tested relationships between any two products, but for all to be compatible, all items as a set must be tested as compatible.
So... What I am asking, would Neo4J would be applicable this type of data relationships. If so, how would I start?
Thank you for your time.
