Better patching API for RavenDB: Creating New Documents

· Database Zone

Build fast, scale big with MongoDB Atlas, a hosted service for the leading NoSQL database. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

A while ago we introduced the ability to send js scripts to RavenDB for server side execution. And we have just recently completed a nice improvement on that feature, the ability to create new documents from existing ones.

Here is how it works:

store.DatabaseCommands.UpdateByIndex("TestIndex",
                                     new IndexQuery {Query = "Exported:false"},
                                     new ScriptedPatchRequest { Script = script }
  ).WaitForCompletion();

Where the script looks like this:

for(var i = 0; i < this.Comments.length; i++ ) {
   PutDocument('comments/', {
    Title: this.Comments[i].Title,
    User: this.Comments[i].User.Name,
    By: this.Comments[i].User.Id
  });
}

this.Export = true;

This will create a set of documents for each of the embedded documents.

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
