Insert Document in MongoDB's Collection

We can use insert() or save() methods to insert document(data) in  collection MongoDB.
Syntax                                                                                                               
Basic syntax of insert() command is as follows:


>db.COLLECTION_NAME.insert(document)


Example


>db.mycol.insert({
   _id: ObjectId(7df78ad8902c),
   title: 'MongoDB Overview',
   description: 'MongoDB is no sql database',
   by: 'Codefari',
   url: 'http://www.codefari.com',
   tags: ['mongodb', 'database', 'NoSQL'],

})


mycol is collection name, MongoDB will create collection if doesn't exist in the database then insert document into it. to know how to create collection click here.
if we did not specify the _id parameter, MongoDB assign a unique Object_Id for this document. _id is 12 bytes hexadecimal number unique for every document in a collection. 12 bytes are divided as follows:


_id: ObjectId(4 bytes timestamp, 3 bytes machine id, 2 bytes process id, 3 bytes incrementer)


If we want to insert multiple documents in single query, then we will be pass an array of document in insert() command.

Example


>db.post.insert([
{
   title: 'MongoDB Overview',
   description: 'MongoDB is no sql database',
   by: 'Codefari',
   url: 'http://www.codefari.com',
   tags: ['mongodb', 'database', 'NoSQL'],
   likes: 100
},
{
   title: 'NoSQL Database',
   description: 'NoSQL database doesn't have tables',
   by: 'Codefari',
   url: 'http://www.codefari.com',
   tags: ['mongodb', 'database', 'NoSQL'],
   likes: 20,
   comments: [  
                      {
         user:'user1',
         message: 'My first comment',
         dateCreated: new Date(2013,11,10,2,35),
         like: 0
      }
   ]
}
])



we can use  this way also to insert the document use db.post.save(document). Save () method will work same as insert() method when we did not specify_id in the document. When we have specify _id then it will replace whole data of document containing _id as specified in save() method.

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 …

Disable/Enable All the Foreign Key Constraint in SQL Server Database

In some scenario we need to disable all foreign key relationships from all table, suppose for bad testing purpose or you want to see what will be effect of garbage data on application or performance, due to this purpose you want to insert garbage data into table and this table contains foreign key constraints then you will get the error of foreign key constraint.
Many people face this types of issue, the following query will resolve this problem but be careful on the production server, it would be better if you do this under guidance to any DBA.
The following query will disable all constraints in the database.

execsp_msforeachtable'alter table ? nocheck constraint all'

Once you disabled all constraints you should also need to enable all constraints once you completed your work, so following query will help you to enable all constraints in the database.

execsp_msforeachtable'alter table ? with check check constraint all'

Using the above query you can resolve above described s…

Add day to ISODate in MongoDB

We can use $add operator to add days in ISODate in mongodb, $add is the Arithmetic Aggregation Operator which adds number and date in mongodb.
Syntax:

{ $add: [ <expression1>, <expression2>, ... ] }

Note:  If one of the argument is date $add operator treats to other arguments as milliseconds to add to the date.
Example: Suppose we have a Test collection as below.

{"Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD","CreatedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-07T08:00:00.000Z")}

Query to add 2 days in CreatedDate

db.Test.aggregate([      { $project: { Title: 1, AddedDate: { $add: [ "$CreatedDate", 2*24*60*60000 ] } } }    ])

Result:

{ "_id" : ObjectId("579a1567ac1b3f3732483de0"), "Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD", "AddedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-09T08:00:00.000Z") }

Note: As mentioned in above note we have to convert days in millisecond because $add operator treat to other arg…

Remove special characters from string in SQL server

I faced many times an issue to remove special characters from a string. Suppose you are working on searching concept and you have to remove the special characters from search string due to query performance, there are many solution are available but T-SQL is easily resolved this issue.
Following query may help you to resolve your issue.

DECLARE@strVARCHAR(400) DECLARE@expresVARCHAR(50)='%[~,@,#,$,%,&,*,(,),.,!]%' SET@str='(remove) ~special~ *characters. from string in sql!' WHILEPATINDEX(@expres,@str)> 0 BEGIN SET@str=Replace(REPLACE(@str,SUBSTRING(@str,PATINDEX(@expres,@str), 1 ),''),'-',' ') END SELECT@str



Query to find foreign key relationship and name of the constraints for each table in the database

Sometimes we need to find all foreign key on a table so that we can analyze the relation of a table and can find the solution accordingly. It is very difficult to see it manually, by using the following query we can find all foreign key relationships on the particular table.

SELECT K_Table=FK.TABLE_NAME, FK_Column=CU.COLUMN_NAME, PK_Table=PK.TABLE_NAME, PK_Column=PT.COLUMN_NAME, Constraint_Name=C.CONSTRAINT_NAME FROMINFORMATION_SCHEMA.REFERENTIAL_CONSTRAINTSC INNERJOININFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTSFKONC.CONSTRAINT_NAME=FK.CONSTRAINT_NAME INNERJOININFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTSPKONC.UNIQUE_CONSTRAINT_NAME=PK.CONSTRAINT_NAME INNERJOININFORMATION_SCHEMA.KEY_COLUMN_USAGECUONC.CONSTRAINT_NAME=CU.CONSTRAINT_NAME INNERJOIN( SELECTi1.TABLE_NAME,i2.COLUMN_NAME FROMINFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLE_CONSTRAINTSi1 INNERJOININFORMATION_SCHEMA

How to change schema of table in SQL Server

In SQL Server 2005 and above versions  all tables grouped into schemas. When we creating a table without specify a schema SQL Server creates a default schema "dbo".  We can alter the schema of table. For example I am creating a table with default schema see bellow script.
CREATETABLE Codefari (             id INTIDENTITY(1,1),             title VARCHAR(400) ) SELECT name,SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id)as [Schema] FROMsys.tables WHERE  name ='Codefari'
Result set
name            Schema ------------------------------------------------ Codefari       dbo
(1 row(s) affected)
In result set we can see schema is dbo, if we want change schema of table then first we have to create a schema if does not exist. See below script.
CREATESCHEMA Blog GO ALTERSCHEMA Blog TRANSFER dbo.Codefari GO
SELECT name,SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id)as [Schema] FROMsys.tables WHERE  name ='Codefari'

Like in MongoDB Query

In SQL, 'LIKE' query look like as below
SELECT*FROM[dbo.][USERS]WHEREFNAMELIKE'%DILIP%'
In MongoDB it's look like as below(query in MongoDB console)
db.USERS.find({"FNAME":/DILIP/})
Same as
db.USERS.find({"FNAME":/^DILIP/})   // FNAMELIKE'DILIP%'
db.USERS.find({"FNAME":/DILIP$/})   // FNAMELIKE'%DILIP'
