MongoDB insert data from Java: insertOne

Published by Profile Image Xules on 14 December, 2015
Class tests for inserting data into MongoDB with insertOne, this is part of my tutorial Beggining with MongoDB in 5 steps (Spanish), but all the codes are explain in English too.

In this class we use the method insertOne to add a document to the database example.

package org.xulescode.mongodb;
import com.mongodb.MongoClient;
import com.mongodb.client.MongoDatabase;
import org.bson.Document;

import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.ParseException;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Locale;

import static java.util.Arrays.asList;
import java.util.LinkedList;

import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;
