  • Course Neo4J Data Access : Content

    In the course Neo4J Data Access the participants learn to store and access data in the Graph database management system Neo4J. Neo4J is the most widely used Graph database and is developed in Java. Neo4J is a NoSQL database, is scalable when processing large amounts of data and supports transactions.

    Intro Graph Databases

    The course starts with an explanation of the basic concepts of Graph databases in which data is modelled in the form of a graph. The nodes of a graph represent the entities and the relationships between the entities are represented by the associations between the nodes.

    Property Graph Model

    Next the Property Graph Model in Neo4J and the possible relationship types are discussed. Nodes and relations store data in key-value pairs called properties. Node Labels, Graph Global Operations and In Graph Indexes are also discussed.

    Cypher Query Language

    Extensive attention is also paid to the Cypher Query Language that is used in Neo4J for data access. Path finding queries, the use of parameters and complex queries are discussed and the Neo4J Data types as well.

    Query Clausules and Functions

    The various Cypher Query clauses such as CREATE, MERGE and SET are treated and the functions available in the Cypher Query language are also part of the course program.

    Neo4J Shell Tools

    The course concludes with a discussion of the use of Neo4J in Java and Spring applications, importing data from CSV files, batch inserts and the Neo4J Shell Tools.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
