I recently found Neo4j, which is some really cool graph database software.

Happily, like VUE, Neo4j is free, libre, and open source. (Except their enterprise edition is dual licensed - commercial and Affero General Public License 3.0:)

http://neo4j.com/open-source-project/


The official Neo4j website currently is providing legally free (as in price) downloads of the book "Graph Databases", 2nd edition, by Ian Robinson, Jim Webber, and Emil Eifrém, published by O'Reilly Media:

http://neo4j.com/books/graph-databases/


Like VUE, Neo4j is Java software. And the graphs created by Neo4j bear a lot of resemblance to VUE maps.

So, perhaps it might be possible to modify VUE to make it into a GUI for looking at Neo4j graph databases?

A modified VUE could maybe even provide an easier, more intuitive way to add data to Neo4j graph databases than Neo4j's "Cypher" query language.


Also, perhaps the search and filtering capabilities of Neo4j might be useful to VUE users.

Maybe the VUE community and Neo4j community could collaborate in some way?

Best wishes,
Apollia

I just recently also checked out OrientDB, which, like Neo4j, is graph database software, free/libre/open source (with a commercial version), and written in Java.

One difference is, OrientDB supports other types of databases besides graph databases. Here's a Wikipedia quote:

"It is a multi-model database, supporting graph, document, key/value, and object models,[1] but the relationships are managed as in graph databases with direct connections between records. It supports schema-less, schema-full and schema-mixed modes."


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OrientDB

In some ways, I like OrientDB even more than Neo4j, so, I just thought I should mention OrientDB too.
