Subject [jira] [Closed] (COUCHDB-729) View Generation: emit() not instantaneous
Date Sun, 30 Oct 2011 21:12:32 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-729?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jan Lehnardt closed COUCHDB-729.
--------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

emit() will append to a buffer inside the query server, tmp will point to the same object.
I don't think making a deep copy is a good idea. This is a leaky abstraction we are unlikely
to close (unless somebody has a fabulous patch that does not introduce any performance or
memory issues.

> Try the following view function:
> function(doc) {
>   var tmp = { result: 'a' };
>   emit(null, tmp);
>   tmp.result = 'b';
>   emit(null, tmp);
> }
> The unfortunate happening is that (null, { result: 'b' }) is emitted twice per document,
rather than one 'a' and one 'b'.  I would think that the emit function should grab and copy
the values passed immediately; it does not make sense or seem useful (to me anyway) to allow
them to change after the fact.
