Using the Neo4j Browser with Embedded Neo4j

21 Nov 2014 by Luanne Misquitta Neo4j Intermediate

There are times when you have an application using Neo4j in embedded mode but also need to play around with the graph using the Neo4j web browser. Since the database can be accessed from at most one process at a time, trying to start up the Neo4j server when your embedded Neo4j application is running won’t work. The WrappingNeoServerBootstrapper, although deprecated, comes to the rescue. Here’s how to set it up.

Random Graph Models (Part II)

06 Aug 2014 by Vojtěch Havlíček Neo4j GraphAware Intermediate

In the first part of this short series about random graph models, we talked about why they are useful and had a brief look at two of them: Erdos-Renyi graphs and Barabasi-Albert model. In this post, we take a look at the “small world” phenomenon and another network model, namely the Watts-Strogatz model.

Random Graph Models (Part I)

16 Jul 2014 by Vojtěch Havlíček Neo4j GraphAware Intermediate

When one obtains a graph data from a measurement on a real world network, it is sometimes useful to make comparison with a random graph. Such graph is characterised by certain degree distribution, which you can imagine to be a list of degrees of nodes present in the network. The most interesting distributions have certain functional dependence which allows one to infer what processes are dominant in formation of the network. The processes consequently characterise the relationships between the nodes.
