About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source document-based database management tool that stores data in JSON-like formats. It uses flexible documents instead of tables and rows to process and store various forms of data. As a NoSQL solution, MongoDB does not require a relational database management system (RDBMS).

Integration of MongoDB and MeisterTask


MongoDB is an open-source NoSQL database. MongoDB was initially released by 10gen, Inc in October 2009. It is a document-oriented database (aka NoSQL.

It uses JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (i.e. schemas can be changed in the running system. and that are multi-dimensional (i.e. data is not stored in tables only but can be stored in multi-dimensional arrays.

Data in MongoDB is dynamic and schema-less. It stores data as BSON (binary JSON. It does not use SQL like syntax to interact with it. It is schema-less where there is no need for DDL or DML statements to define the schema of the database.

It supports multiple programming languages including Java, C++, .NET, Ruby, Python, PHP, Go and Node.js. It has a high level API called MongoDB C++ Driver (C++ Driver also known as “the C Driver”), which provides access to the full features of MongoDB including the GridFS filesystem and the ability to connect over SSL. There are other drivers available for different languages such as Java and Node.js.


MeisterTask is a task management software that allows users to manage tasks related to their work through the use of a shared calendar. Users can create tasks and assign them to other members of the team or to themselves. The tasks can be linked to one or more calendars, which allows users to create tasks from calendar events and vice versa. Tasks can be assigned to different categories, and they can be assigned to dates within a range of dates determined by the user. Users can add comments to tasks and attach files to them as well as set reminders, see when others are working on the same task, and cplaborate with them about what needs to be done and when it should be done by. Tasks are displayed on a calendar view.

Integration of MongoDB and MeisterTask

There are two ways to integrate MongoDB and MeisterTask together:

MongoDB as a data store for MeisterTask data. Since MeisterTask is an application whose main function is to manage tasks and tasks are usually stored as separate entities in databases, we could integrate MongoDB into a project using MeisterTask as a data store for all the tasks in it. This would allow MeisterTask to use MongoDB only as a data store. MongoDB as a data store for a specific project that uses MeisterTask. We could do something similar to above by integrating MongoDB into MeisterTask as it is but this time we do not want our project to use MeisterTask as a data store for its data but instead we want to use some data stored on MongoDB as a data source for a specific project within MeisterTask so that we can use both the projects for different things and not have different instances of MeisterTask running. For instance, if we are building an online shop then we could store all the orders that have been placed online in MongoDB, which would mean we would not have to create any data on MeisterTask just for storing orders despite the fact that we could still use MeisterTask for something else such as managing employees' schedules or reporting sales figures etc…

Since we will be using MeisterTask just as a front-end top, we don’t need to write code that will allow us to save data on MeisterTask directly into MongoDB but rather we will use an API provided by MongoDB itself so that we can call one of its functions from within our code whenever we need to save something on it. In order to call one of its functions we need an API key which will enable us to make calls on it for free. You can request an API key from here once you have registered an account on the site or even if you haven't yet registered an account on the site but plan to register one later on. Here are instructions on how you can request an API key from here while still having an account on the site:

Open the profile page for your project by clicking the avatar icon next to your username at the top right corner of your dashboard. Then click "API Keys" under "Manage". On the "API Keys" page click "Request API Key". Fill out the form and click "Request Key". Once your api_key has been successfully created you can close the window saying "Thank you! Your api_key has been created." then click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page. Once you have saved your changes you can close your dashboard and go hack away at your code!

Now let's get down to business... First thing's first... We'll start with getting some information about our database structure using MongoTop:

#include <iostream> #include <string> #include <sstream> #include <cstdlib> #include <time.h> #include <MongoTop/MongoTop.hpp> using namespace std; using namespace boost::program_options; int main(. { string dbName = "-"; string dbHost = "-"; string dbPort = "-"; string dbUser = "-"; string dbPass = "-"; int dbConnections = 1; int retries = 0; string mongodbUrl("mongodb://" + std::to_string(dbUser. + ":" + std::to_string(dbPass. + "@" + std::to_string(dbHost. + ":" + std::to_string(dbPort)); string mongodbOptions("ssl=true"); // Options for mongo->setServer(. mongodbOptions += "replSet="; // Options for mongo->setDatabase(. mongodbOptions += dbName; mongodbOptions += "/"; mongodbUrl = mongodbUrl + mongodbOptions; int retval = 1; bop bSuccess = false; bop bConnectionFailed = false; while (retval != -1 && !bSuccess. { std::cout << "Enter paramters for connecting to your MongoDB server" << std::endl; std::cout << "Name. "; std::getline(std::cin, dbName); std::cout << "Host. "; std::getline(std::cin, dbHost); std::cout << "Port. "; std::getline(std::cin, dbPort); std::cout << "User ID. "; std::getline(std::cin, dbUser); std::cout << "Password. "; std::getline(std::cin, dbPass); std::cout << std::endl; bSuccess = false; bConnectionFailed = false; retval = pconfig->Configure("mongodb", dbName, dbHost, dbPort, dbUser, dbPass); // Set server options retval = pconfig->SetOptions("mongodb", mongodbUrl); // Set database options retval = pconfig->SetOptions("mongodb", mongodbUrl); // Set database connection options retval = pconfig->SetOptions("mongodb", mongodbUrl); // Save connection options retval = pconfig->Save(); // Connect retval = pconfig->Connect(); if (retval == -2. { time_t curTime = time(NULL); int curDate = curTime / 1000 * 3600; int curHour = curTime % 3600 / 60; int curMinute = curTime % 60; int curSecond = curTime % 60; time_t hour1 = curTime + 3600 * 24 * 24 * 3600; time_t hour2 = hour1 + 3600 * 3600 * 3600; time_t hour3 = hour2 + 3600 * 3600 * 3600; time_t hour4 = hour3 + 3600 * 3600 * 3600; string dateStr = IntToString(curDate); dateStr += ", "; dateStr += IntToString(curHour); dateStr += ", "; dateStr += IntToString(curMinute); dateStr += ", 00"; dateStr += IntToString(curSecond); std::cout << dateStr << std::endl; } } return 0; }
