Can we connect to MongoDB Server 2.6.12 using Java Driver version 0.11?
We have a constraint of
upgrading Java Driver version which would require huge change in our
client code. We use JDK 8 for
compilation of our project. We would like to know whether it is possible
to connect to MongoDB Server 2.6.12 or
MongoDB Server 3.0 using Java Driver version 0.11 if we only use the
limited set of features (not the functionalities that
were introduced in Server version 2.6.12 or 3.0).
The MongoDB Java driver version *0.11* was released in Oct, 2009 .. so if
that's definitely the version you are using, I'd be surprised if there
weren't significant compatibility problems and known issues that have since
If you are actually using the *2.11* version of the Java driver, this has
only been tested through MongoDB 2.4. I wouldn't recommend using
unsupported combinations of MongoDB driver and server as you may run into
novel bugs (we don't test or support these combinations). If you want to
avoid risk, I would continue using a compatible server version and schedule
a proper upgrade of driver & server into your development/testing schedule.
