Methods


createCollection(collection, content) → {ResultProvider}

Creates one or more JSON documents for a collection; takes a collection name string and the content for one or more JSON documents (or an array of content). The server assigns uri identifiers to the documents created with the content. The documents#write function is less simple but more complete, accepting a uri identifier and metadata (such as multiple collections) and optionally transforming each document on the server.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
collection string the name of the collection for the documents
content object | Array.<object> the objects with the content for the documents
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback receiving an array of uri strings for the created documents.
Type
ResultProvider

eval(source, variables, txid) → {ResultProvider}

Evaluates JavaScript on the server; the user for the database client must have permission to evaluate code on the server and, in addition, permission to execute the actions performed by the source; takes a configuration object with the following named parameters or, as a shortcut, the source with or without variables.
Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
source string the JavaScript source code
variables object <optional>
an object in which each property has a variable name as a key and a number, string, or boolean value
txid string | transactions.Transaction <optional>
a string transaction id or Transaction object identifying an open multi-statement transaction
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback that receives the response
Type
ResultProvider

invoke(path, variables, txid) → {ResultProvider}

Invokes a JavaScript or XQuery module on the server; the user for the database client must have permission to invoke modules on the server and, in addition, permission to execute the actions performed by the module; takes a configuration object with the following named parameters or, as a shortcut, the path with or without variables.
Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
path string the path of the module in the modules database for the REST server; the module must have been installed previously (typically with the config.extlibs#write function) using a filename extension (sjs or xqy by default) registered for server JavaScript or XQuery in the server mime types table
variables object <optional>
an object in which each property has a variable name as a key and a number, string, or boolean value; the key may be in Clark notation for namespaced XQuery variables
txid string | transactions.Transaction <optional>
a string transaction id or Transaction object identifying an open multi-statement transaction
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback that receives the response
Type
ResultProvider

probe(uri) → {ResultProvider}

Probes whether a document exists; takes a uri string identifying the document. The documents#probe function is less simple but more complete, returning an object with additional information.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
uri string the uri for the database document
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback that receives a boolean.
Type
ResultProvider

queryCollection(collection, query) → {ResultProvider}

Executes a query to retrieve the content of documents in a collection, optionally adding a query built by a queryBuilder to retrieve a subset of the collection documents. The documents#query function is less simple but more complete, potentially transforming documents on the server and returning an envelope object for each document with the uri and metadata as well as the content. an object for each document with additional information.
Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
collection string the name of the document collection
query object <optional>
a query built by a queryBuilder
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback that receives an array with the content of the documents.
Type
ResultProvider

read(uris) → {ResultProvider}

Reads one or more documents; takes one or more uri strings or an array of uri strings. The documents#read function is less simple but more complete, potentially transforming documents on the server and returning an envelope object for each document with the uri and metadata as well as the content.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
uris string | Array.<string> the uri string or an array of uri strings for the database documents
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback that receives an array with the content of the documents.
Type
ResultProvider

remove(uris) → {ResultProvider}

Removes one or more database documents; takes one or more uri strings identifying the document. The documents#remove function is less simple but more complete.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
uris string | Array.<string> the uri string or an array of uri strings identifying the database documents

Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback that receives an array of the uris identifying the removed documents.
Type
ResultProvider

removeCollection(collection) → {ResultProvider}

  • 1.0
Returns:
an object with a result() function takes a success callback that receives the uri string identifying the removed collection.
Type

setLogger(logger, isErrorFirst)

Supplies a logger to use for database interactions or, instead, takes a logging level from the debug|info|warn|error|silent enumeration (where silent is the initial setting) for the default console logger.
Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
logger object an object providing debug(), info(), warn(), and error() logging methods such as a logger provided by the Bunyan or Winston logging libraries.
isErrorFirst boolean <optional>
whether an error should be logged as the first parameter; must be provided as true for Bunyan (but not for Winston); defaults to false
Since:
  • 1.0

writeCollection(collection, documents) → {ResultProvider}

Inserts or updates one or more documents for a collection; takes a collection name string and an object that maps document uris to document content. The documents#write function is less simple but more complete, accepting a uri identifier and metadata (such as multiple collections) and optionally transforming each document on the server.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
collection string the name of the collection for the documents
documents object an object in which every key is the uri string for a document and every value is the content for the document
Since:
  • 1.0
Returns:
an object whose result() function takes a success callback receiving an array of uri strings for the written documents.
Type
ResultProvider
