AQL on ArangoDB and Cypher on Neo4J

Group 6


In the exploration of query languages designed for graph databases, ArangoDB Query Language (AQL) and Cypher, the query language for Neo4j, emerge as pivotal tools tailored for distinct operational paradigms. This technical paper delves into a comparative analysis of AQL and Cypher, highlighting scenarios where AQL demonstrates superior capabilities. Two domains where AQL distinctly outperforms Cypher are highlighted:

Multi-Model Data Handling

AQL's adeptness in managing multiple data models—ranging from graphs, documents, to key-value pairs—within a single query framework is unparalleled. This feature becomes indispensable in applications where graph data integration with other data types is requisite, enhancing the fluidity and comprehensiveness of data manipulation. A scenario showcases the joining of graph-based relational data with document-based user profiles, epitomizing AQL's versatility in handling complex join operations with great flexibility.
