How to easily create a database with NoSQL Manager

When starting to work with MongoDB in the NoSQL Manager console shell, the first step is to set the desired data storage as the current one to use later. It may look strange for you if you only had expierence with SQL databases, but there is no 'create database' command in the MongoDB. It doesn't matter whether such a database exists or not, and if it is not there, then MongoDB will automatically create it when you add data to it. The sample below illustrates that behaviour.

Database name has some restrictions. Name length is limited to 64 characters.
Also it cannot contain
/\. "$*<>:|?
characters - on Windows platform, and
/\. "$
characters - on Linux and Unix.

Connect to your MongoDB instance and execute the following commands using the Shell:

show databases
use test
show databases
show databases

Shell: Implicit database creation
Since our MongoDB installation is clean, the first command returned only three system databases:

// Command #1 1:1 0.019 s
admin   0.000GB
config  0.000GB
local   0.000GB

The second command switched the execution context to the 'test' database:

// Command #2 2:1 0.018 s
switched to db test

But didn't create any database as we can see from the third command result:

// Command #3 3:1 0.018 s
admin   0.000GB
config  0.000GB
local   0.000GB

The command #4 successfully created a collection in the current database (test):

// Command #4 4:1 0.043 s
{ "ok" : 1 }

Also this command has created the test database, as we can see from the command #5 result:

// Command #5 5:1 0.019 s
admin   0.000GB
config  0.000GB
local   0.000GB
test    0.000GB
Using the
command, you can get statistics for the current database:
Shell: db.stats() test database command result

But the simplest way to create a database is using NoSQL Manager Create New Database dialog:
Create database dialog

This dialog creates a temporary collection named empty_collection (like in the sample above).
You can delete this collection later when create your own real collections.
New database temporary collection.
