    rohithn Wham!


    Because you don't know what data you will be querying for. Perfectly suited for rapid prototyping. Altering tables in traditional, relational DBMS is painfully expensive and slow.

    Performance is not great though. Ah who cares!

    rohithn Wham!


    Fast and easy to code. Hopefully. Development with Java is painfully slow.
