20.3 JavaScript Quick-Start Guide: MySQL Shell for Document Store

This quick-start guide provides instructions to begin prototyping document store applications interactively with MySQL Shell. The guide includes the following topics:

  • Introduction to MySQL functionality, MySQL Shell, and the world_x example schema.

  • Operations to manage collections and documents.

  • Operations to manage relational tables.

  • Operations that apply to documents within tables.

To follow this quick-start guide you need a MySQL server with X Plugin installed, the default in 8.0, and MySQL Shell to use as the client. MySQL Shell 8.0 (part of MySQL 8.0) provides more in-depth information about MySQL Shell. The Document Store is accessed using X DevAPI, and MySQL Shell provides this API in both JavaScript and Python.
