MongoDB Overview

I have started to work with Mongodb so think start blogging about MongoDB. I will try to write very simple language which will give you great understanding on MongoDB concept to create and deploy a highly scalable and performance oriented database.
MongoDB is an open-source document database is written in c++, and leading NoSQL database.
MongoDB is a cross-platform, document oriented database that provides, high performance, high availability, and easy scalability. MongoDB works on concept of collection and document.
MONGODB OVERVIEW
Database: Database physically contains the collections. Each database gets its own set of files on the file system. A single MongoDB server usually has multiple databases.
Collection: This is equivalent to RDBMS table; basically collection is group of MongoDB Documents. A collection exists within a single database. Collections do not insist on a schema. Documents within a collection can have different fields. Naturally, all documents in a collection are of similar or related purpose.
Document: Document is a set of key-value pairs. Documents have dynamic schema. Dynamic schema means that documents in the same collection do not need to have the same set of fields or structure, and common fields in a collection's documents may hold different types of data.

Sample document
Below given example shows the document structure of a blog site which is simply a comma separated key value pair

{
   _id: ObjectId(4gf66u875)

         dateCreated: new Date(2015,1,20,2,43),
         like: 0
      },
      {
         user:'user2',
         message: 'My second comments',
         dateCreated: new Date(2015,1,25,7,34),
         like: 5
      }
   ]
}
_id is a 12 bytes hexadecimal number which assures the uniqueness of every document. You can provide _id while inserting the document. If you didn't provide then MongoDB provide a unique id for every document. These 12 bytes first 4 bytes for the current timestamp, next 3 bytes for machine id, next 2 bytes for process id of MongoDB server and remaining 3 bytes are simple incremental value.

Remove special character from string in MongoDB

Problem: Suppose wehave a collection and one field is type string contains some special character (like !@#$%) and we don’t want these special character.
Solution: We can easily remove the special character from field using script “replace(/[^a-zA-Z 0-9 ]/g, '')” in our query.  How can we remove special character from string using this script please see following example.
Example: Suppose we have a collection “EduSurvey “where we are collecting information from institutions.

{Name:"JB institute”, About:"This is good one collage for MBA", Information:"This $%%institute ##has good faculty etc$$"}
{Name:"MK institute”, About:"This is good one collage for MCA", Information:"This$$%# is the dummy text12"}
{Name:"MG institute”, About:"This is good one collage for B,Tech", Information:"This# institute@ has&* good infrastructure"}

Did you notice Information fields contains some special character so we…

What is difference between UNION and UNION ALL in SQL Server

We use UNION and UNION ALL operator to combine multiple results set into one result set.
UNION operator is used to combining multiple results set into one result set but removes any duplicate rows. Basically, UNION is used to performing a DISTINCT operation across all columns in the result set. UNION operator has the extra overhead of removing duplicate rows and sorting result.
UNION ALL operator use to combine multiple results set into one result set but it does not remove any duplicate result. Actually, this does not remove duplicate rows so it is faster than the UNION operator. If you want to combine multiple results and without duplicate records then use UNION otherwise UNION ALL is better.
Following some rules for using UNION/UNION ALL operator
1.The number of the column should be the same in the query's when you want to combine them. 2.The column should be of the same data type. 3.ORDER BY clause can be applied to the overall result set not within each result set.
4.Column name of …
