Subject Re: mixing couchdb views and lucene fulltext indexing
Date Thu, 25 Feb 2010 03:26:38 GMT
I'm afraid it's not possible (anyone that thinks they can solve this,
please speak up!)

couchdb-lucene allows Javascript functions specifically so you can
duplicate code from your normal couch views so you can achieve the
illusion of "joins" without the (imho) intractable performance issues
that ensue.

What you ask for can be done by multiple calls from the client, which
is a typical approach for couchdb views too.
