MongoDB Data Access Using AlphaDAO


Alpha Anywhere's data integration tools allow you to connect to a vast array of SQL databases and then build Grid and UX components against the SQL data. You can also use Xbasic (specifically the AlphaDAO object) for data access and transformation to write code that executes SQL commands.

You can work with a MongoDB database in the same way.
