Sequoiadb is a kind of file-based non-relation database. It usesJSON data module.
  • If users want to match elements nested in an object. They can use "." ("0x2E" in ASCII) to connect parent element and child element. For example, in this object:
    { name:"tom",address:{ street:{ street1:"1024 Wall Street",street2:"University Drive"},zipcode: 100000 } }
    If users want to match the element "street" in the object "street" in the object "address", they can get it in this way:
    { "address.street.street1":{ $exists : 1 } }
  • If there is an array in an object, users can get the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd element by "0", "1" and "2" respectively. For example, this object cantains am array:
    { name: "tom", phone: [ "13175824", "1528345"] }
    Users can get the 1st element in the array in this way:
    { "phone.0 ":"13175824" }
