TDV Adapter for Apache CouchDB

Build 21.0.8137

NoSQL Database

Apache CouchDB is a schema-less document database that provides high performance, availability, and scalability. These features are not necessarily incompatible with a standards-compliant query language like SQL-92. The following sections show various schemes that the adapter offers to bridge the gap with relational SQL and a document database.

Automatic Schema Discovery

The Automatic Schema Discovery scheme automatically finds the data types in an Apache CouchDB object by scanning a configured number of rows of the object. You can use RowScanDepth, FlattenArrays, and FlattenObjects to control the relational representation of the collections in Apache CouchDB.

Parsing Nested Data

The adapter models the schemaless Apache CouchDB objects into relational tables and translates SQL queries into Apache CouchDB queries to get the requested data.

Free-Form Queries

The schema of the table is necessary to report metadata, but you can write Free-Form Queries not tied to the schema to select, insert, update, or delete data from columns that do not exist in the schema (without flattening).

Vertical Flattening

See Vertical Flattening to process JSON arrays as separate tables.

JSON Functions

See JSON Functions for query examples that can access specific nested data manually.

Query Mapping

See Query Mapping for more details on how various Apache CouchDB operations are represented as SQL.

Dynamic Views

The adapter supports listing Apache CouchDB views and retrieving data from them. This is controlled by the ListViews property, which is set to false by default. Set this property to true for Apache CouchDB views to be displayed when listing tables.
