Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1362) couchjs doesn't clean out global namespace between views calls
Date Sun, 11 Dec 2011 23:06:40 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-1362:

What version of SpiderMonkey are you using?

In general I agree but I've never seen an efficient method not to mention a way to support
it across all the SpiderMonkey versions we use.

> Sometimes a view can access the functions that were defined in a previous view.  This
can lead a developer to think that function sharing has been implemented, but it's not reliable
behaviour.  It would be better if the global namespace were cleared between map/reduce runs
so that it's clear that there is no reliable way to share functions between views.
