For the last couple of weeks, we’ve run a series of CouchDB Tips and I think that this one would be a nice addition to the list.
Starting with its version 0.10, CouchDB offers the possibility to perform server-side processing of incoming documents before they are committed. This feature is available through document update handlers defined in a design doc. You can find more details and a sample application of this feature on the linked page.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
