Youtube video on Proper steps to integrate MongoDB NOSQL database with R on Ubuntu 12.0.4 Linux with RStudio

Here are some current tricks:

install open jdk 6 not 7 as it will mess up the RJava install with R

If this happens, keep an eye out for a message that says something to the effect of checking your Linux Java environment. It will say you need to run as root, R CMD java… or something like that. That would be appear in your R console during the RJava package install. My problem came to Java 7 versus 6 which resolved it.

Create your MongoDB mydb data with:

Once installed, you should be able to do the following within your R shell or RStudio:

for RMongo:
> library(“RMongo”)
Loading required package: RUnit

> mongo <- mongoDbConnect(“mydb”)
> dbShowCollections(mongo)
[1] “system.indexes” “things”
> results <- dbGetQuery(mongo, “nutrient_metadatas”, “{}”, 0, 2)
> results <- dbGetQuery(mongo, “things”, “{}”, 0, 2)
> names(results)
[1] “X_id” “name”
> dbDisconnect(mongo)
