What so interesting about CouchDB ?
In CouchDB, the data is a collection of JSON documents.It is more of object database than a relational db.I shows how powerful is javascript in server side -->Views are created by javascript like a map reduce.It is a very good choice to use for scalabale RESTful applications.Currently this project is in alpha stage.
