Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1868) Using multiple keys, the _all_docs built-in view acts differently then a user defined view

Filippo Fadda created COUCHDB-1868:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Using multiple keys, the _all_docs built-in view acts differently then
a user defined view
                 Key: COUCHDB-1868
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1868
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: View Server Support
            Reporter: Filippo Fadda


When you query a view using multiple keys, the _all_docs built-in view acts differently then
a user defined view:

1) in the first case CouchDB returns "not_found" for every not found key;
2) querying a user defined view produces, instead, an empty array.

In the first case you obtain error="not_found" for every key, when you query a user defined
view you simply don't get any rows, just the total rows for the view.

See: http://pastebin.com/D7NExJrd

Now, regarding 'keys' the documentation says something like: "Used to retrieve just the view
rows matching that set of keys. Rows are returned in the order of the specified keys."

In a normal case, CouchDB should return just a row for each matched key, but it will really
help, having an option to return a row for every key, even there if not found, because it's
more easy, cycle through results.
Let's suppose the application I'm doing gets the last 30 blog posts, displaying for each one,
information that are stored into related documents. The application will query, using as keys
the posts' identifiers, other views to get, for example, if a post has been starred from the
current logged-in user, etc.
If a view always returns a number of rows equals to the number of keys, the application can
cycle from 0 to 29 and display all the related information for a post.
