Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1300) Array.prototype isn't working properly
Date Sun, 02 Oct 2011 00:14:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1300?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13118937#comment-13118937
] 

Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-1300:
----------------------------------------

Hi, there's a reason for that, and it's exactly the same reason why "foo instanceof Array"
fails when foo is created in a browser iframe and the previous expression evaluated in another
iframe which is accessing that array.

For couch, the user document is json decoded in one javascript context and the map function
ran against the document is executed in another context (a sandbox). Each context has its
own Array constructor.

(new TypeError("doc.store.taxes.compact is not a function", "", 29)) with doc._id RT7-RT7-31-20
> the first logs show that doc.store.taxes is an array, why do i need to use Array() on
it in order to use the prototype functions?
