Where can I find updated New4J Sample Databases?


(Eric_H) #1

Does anyone know where I can find a version of the sample Movie Database that is compatible with version 3.4.10 of Neo4J Community Edition? The example here: https://neo4j.com/developer/movie-database/#_download only goes to version 2.3. I am using the small movie database for learning but would like to move to a larger but similar dataset to keep learning more about query performance.

If this question is better suited for another sub-forum I would welcome any suggestions as to where to post it.

Have you tried neo4jsandbox.com? This allows you to launch neo4j instances with a lot of different default datasets. If you just want to play with one, that's the easiest way. Most of those sandboxes don't offer the raw data as a download, but you can either use the sandbox, or use other tooling to grab a copy of the data.

The sandbox is nice but I really want to practice importing/using the data on my own server. Also, shouldn't the Official documentation be pointed to the datasets that are compatible with a more or less current release of Neo4J? Can you elaborate on what you mean by "use other tooling to grab a copy of the data." Is there a way to get ALL of the data out of a sandbox instance for import into my local server?

Thanks!

Hey @Eric_H - if you're looking for the dataset used in the Recommendations sandbox you can download the datastore here. (It's a combination of Open Movie DB and MovieLens ratings).

We'll work on updating the example dataset page - thanks for pointing it out.

William, thank you so much. I look forward to playing around with it soon.

Any chance to get the data from the Crime Investigation sandbox?
