Rational Asset Manager access to assets in MongoDB

Jeffrey Cohen (111) | asked Sep 19 '13, 3:24 p.m.
a customer wants to use RAM for asset management.  Some of the assets are currently in MongoDB.  Is there a way to access those items?  Do we need to create a NoSQL adapter or is there a way to "fix" the uri to make the call?

When you say asset, you imply the information around it.... what about the content?

Jeffrey Cohen commented Sep 23 '13, 12:07 p.m.

these assets may be PDFs or pictures stored in MongoDB.  All I need to do today is get RAM to return that PDF.  The info around it comes out of RAM.

RAM has own internal database for storing assets. The assets would need to be copied into RAM. RAM cannot use MongoDB because its database is an SQL one. It cannot work with NoSQL database. It is currently configured to only support DB2, Oracle, or MS SQLServer.

Not what I'm asking.  I know that MongoDB won't work as the JTS backend.  We are proposing DB2 for the backend.  I want RAM to be able to link (via REST??) to the documents in the MongoDB.  In other words, can the URI of the RAM asset target be NoSQL?

RAM supports URL Artifacts.
