Java MongoDB Driver
.. default-domain:: mongodb
.. admonition:: Java Driver 3.0 Released
For more information, see
`Introducing the 3.0 Java Driver <>`_.
Starting with the 3.0 release, the official MongoDB Java Driver
provides both synchronous and asynchronous interaction with MongoDB.
For the official MongoDB Java Driver documentation, see the `MongoDB
Java Driver Documentation
<>`_. For the API
documentation, see `MongoDB Java Driver API Documentation
Driver Features
MongoDB Driver
An updated Java driver that includes the legacy API as well as a new
generic MongoCollection interface that complies with a new
cross-driver CRUD specification. For documentation on the Java
Driver, including the Getting Started guide, see `Java Driver
MongoDB Async Driver
A new asynchronous API that can leverage either Netty or Java 7's
AsynchronousSocketChannel for fast and non-blocking IO. For
documentation on the Async Java Driver,including the Getting Started
guide, see `Async Java Driver Documentation
BSON Library
A standalone BSON library with a new Codec infrastructure that you
can use to build high-performance encoders and decoders without
requiring an intermediate Map instance. For documentation on the
BSON Library, see `BSON Library
Core Driver
A new core library upon which both the MongoDB Driver and Async
Driver are both built. Users can use the new core library to build
alternative or experimental high-level APIs.
The recommended way to incorporate the driver into your project is with
a dependency management system. For more information, see
`MongoDB Java Driver <>`_.
If upgrading from an earlier version of the Java driver, see also
