$not operator in MongoDB

$not returns the Boolean value to opposite of its expression, suppose expression evaluate the value false $not evaluate it true same as if expression evaluate true $not evaluate as false. $not operator treat as false to null, 0 and undefined.


{ $not: [ <expression> ] }

Example: Suppose we have a collection books. Write a query to select books which quantity is not less then 3.

{ "_id" : 1, "book_title" : "book1 ","price" : 20, "quantity" : 1, "date" : ISODate("2016-08-05T07:00:00Z") }
{ "_id" : 2, "book_title" : "book2", "price" : 10, "quantity" : 2, "date" : ISODate("2016-08-05T08:00:00Z") }
{ "_id" : 3, "book_title" : "book3", "price" : 30, "quantity" : 4, "date" : ISODate("2016-08-17T10:00:00Z") }
{ "_id" : 4, "book_title" : "book4", "price" : 10, "quantity" : 2, "date" : ISODate("2014-09-01T11:20:39.736Z") }
{ "_id" : 5, "book_title" : "book5", "price" : 20, "quantity" : 6, "date" : ISODate("2014-09-04T20:23:13.331Z") }




{"_id" : 3,"book_title" : "book3","price" : 30,"quantity" : 4,"date" : ISODate("2016-08-17T10:00:00.000Z")}
{"_id" : 5,"book_title" : "book5","price" : 20,"quantity" : 6,"date" : ISODate("2014-09-04T20:23:13.331Z")}

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.

{ $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 ] } } }    ])


{ "_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…

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 …
