Node.JS API for Clusterpoint 4.*

Clusterpoint is a NoSQL document database known for its innovative Cloud-based distributed architecture, fast processing speed, and a flexible "pay as you use" pricing model. The database also features a developer-friendly API suitable for many popular modern programming languages, including Node.JS -- the specific API which is the focus of this document. Its full support for ACID-compliant transactions is a rarity among NoSQL databases, making the product useful for situations where data integrity is a must.

The recently introduced fourth edition of Clusterpoint added a unique JavaScript/SQL query language with computational capabilities, allowing you to create powerful queries to store, retrieve, and transform data. The Node.JS API is flexible enough to allow you to use either interface methods or raw JS/SQL queries to accomplish your database tasks. The decision to use either approach ultimately depends on programmer preference and the individual development scenario.

Quick Examples using CO library and Promises

'use strict';
 
//include Clusterpoint Library
var Clusterpoint = require('clusterpoint');
var co = require('co');
 
 
//Note, replace 'api-eu' with 'api-us', if you use US Cloud server
var config = {
    host      : 'api-eu.clusterpoint.com',
    account_id: 'ACCOUNT_ID',
    username  :   'USERNAME',
    debug     : true, // default = false
    port      : 443 // set custom port if using standalone version. Default port = 443
};
 
// In this example we will use a simple database named "bookshelf" which consists of books and book authors.
 
// create Clusterpoint main object
var cp = new Clusterpoint(config);
 
// connect to database
var bookshelfDB = cp.database('bookshelf');
 
// connect to collection using database connection
var authorsCollection = bookshelfDB.collection('authors');
 
// or one can connect straight to the collection like this
var booksCollection = cp.database('bookshelf').collection('books');
 
// Example using CO library
// CO = Generator based control flow goodness for nodejs and the browser, using promises, letting you write non-blocking code in a nice-ish way.
// install CO: npm install co
// https://github.com/tj/co
return co(function *() {
 
    // try to remove documents from both collections just for the purpose of this example
