This requires the library mongo-2.8.0.jar to be present in the classpath. The following example shows how to insert a document in Mongo database.

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.mongodb.tests;

import java.net.UnknownHostException;

import com.mongodb.BasicDBObject;
import com.mongodb.DB;
import com.mongodb.DBCollection;
import com.mongodb.DBCursor;
import com.mongodb.DBObject;
import com.mongodb.Mongo;
import com.mongodb.MongoException;

public class InsertToCollectionTest {

  /**
   @param args
   */
  public static void main(String[] args) {

    try {
      //Connect to mongoDB with given IP and PORT
      Mongo mongo = new Mongo("localhost"27017);
      
      //Get the database object
      DB database = mongo.getDB("mytestdb");
      
      //Gets a collection with a given name.
        //If the collection does not exist, a new collection is created.
      DBCollection collection = database.getCollection("students");
      //collection.drop();
      
      //Create and insert document to collection
      DBObject document = new BasicDBObject();
      document.put("name""Sriram");
      document.put("age"2);
      
      collection.insert(document);
      
      document = new BasicDBObject()
        .append("name""Sudhakar")
        .append("age"29)
        .append("mobile""123456789");
      
      collection.insert(document);
      
      //Queries for all objects in this collection
      DBCursor dbCursor = collection.find();
      DBObject record = null;
      
      while (dbCursor.hasNext()) {
        record = dbCursor.next();
        System.out.println(record);
      }
      
    catch (UnknownHostException e) {
      e.printStackTrace();
    catch (MongoException e) {
      e.printStackTrace();
    }
  }
}
   

It gives the following output,
{ "_id" : { "$oid" : "503cb40842e25ce7a11a8005"} , 
	"name" : "Sriram" , "age" : 2}
{ "_id" : { "$oid" : "503cb40842e25ce7a11a8006"} , 
	"name" : "Sudhakar" , "age" : 29 , "mobile" : "123456789"}


                    Print
