In-line View Definitions Couch Db Ektorp

I use Couch DB with Ektorp at Spring 3. I read the document and have tried to implement examples. I am so new to these technologies. This is the point where I didn't understand:

@View( name = "all", map = "function(doc) { if (doc.type == 'Sofa' ) emit( null, doc._id )}")
public class SofaRepository extends CouchDbRepositorySupport<Sofa> {

@View( name = "avg_sofa_size", map = "function(doc) {...}", reduce = "function(doc) {...}")
public int getAverageSofaSize() {
ViewResult r = db.queryView(createQuery("avg_sofa_size"));
return r.getRows().get(0).getValueAsInt();
}

}


How does that wievs work and how to define them, what happens at that lines?

Answer

CouchDbRepositorySupport out of the box provides the following methods to the SofaRepository:

public void add(Sofa entity);
public void update(Sofa entity);
public void remove(Sofa entity);
public Sofa get(String id);
public Sofa get(String id, String rev);
public List<T> getAll();
public boolean contains(String docId);

By having this inline view annotation for CouchDbRepositorySupport:

@View( name = "all", map = "function(doc) { if (doc.type == 'Sofa' ) emit( null, doc._id )}") 

You redefine the return from a getAll() method.

You also adding another method getAverageSofaSize() to your repository, with inline View:

@View( name = "avg_sofa_size", map = "function(doc) {...}", reduce = "function(doc) {...}")

which explicitly provides a query that db.queryView(createQuery("avg_sofa_size")); undersntad. db here is a CouchDbConnector that is able to create, delete, purge, find, etc..

Take a look at more documentation about defining in line Views
