Neo4j and concept of data model


is there a way (and purpose) to define a data model within Neo4j database without creating actual nodes?


Hello Ari,

Neo4j does not support a fixed schema like you would for a relational database. Labels and property keys are added to the "schema" of the database as those elements are added to the database.

If you are looking for simply a data model, you could use the arrows tool to spec out the graph data model, but it is not written to the database.
