Subject "_attachements" field name in CouchDB
Date Tue, 06 Jul 2010 03:36:11 GMT

Hi, all, 

I am a newbie to CouchDB. Sorry for a potential newbie question. 

I am wondering whether we can associate binary attachment to a field name defined by users,
instead of the generic pre-defined "_attachments" field name? If we can do that, we can manage
association between multiple attachments and different parts of the JSON document easier.

For example, if a JSON doc represents a purchase order, a PO can have multiple line items.
Each line item may have optional attachment. 

[ { "line" : 1, "price": "33.4", "picture attachement" : { ... } } , { "line": 2, ... } ]

Within the "picture attachement" object, it contains some special fields to denote it is an
e.g.  "picture attachement" : { "_attachment_id": "..." , ... }

We can do something to that extent already. That is great. 

If not, do we have a JIRA issue for that already? 
If we have not that JIRA issue yet, does it worth log an issue there now? 

Thank you so much for answering this newbie question!!!
