Neo4j 4.0 has been out for a few months now, but since the whole world is on lock down, it didn’t get a chance to make a grand entrance at Graph Connect 2020. It comes loaded with some great new features but I’m not here to tell you about all that. There are plenty of better places for it. Instead I’m going to tell you about an old feature that got a bit of an update. Unmanaged Extensions. Yup, those things have been with us since dinosaurs roamed the earth and they are still in Neo4j 4.0. Why you ask? Because they let you turn Neo4j into an HTTP API style service making it super easy to integrate into your existing infrastructure. It’s still one of my favorite ways to build Neo4j applications because once you have the documentation of the API locked down, you can crank out the endpoints quickly and the service is done before you know it.
