Hibernate OGM has been able for a while to work with an embedded Neo4j instance. In the next release, we want to add the ability to connect to a remote Neo4j server.
A new binary protocol is available since Neo4j 3 to connect to a remote server: Bolt.
In addition to Bolt, Neo4j comes also with a RESTful API and we are wondering if we should add an option to switch between the two approaches.
To sum up, given the option, would you choose the RESTful API instead of Bolt to connect to Neo4j using Hibernate OGM?
We created a poll on the Hibernate twitter account where you can vote your preference.
This is the right time to let us know what you think.
