Module mongodb::sync[][src]

This is supported on crate feature sync only.
Expand description

Contains the sync API. This is only available when the sync feature is enabled.



This is the main entry point for the synchronous API. A Client is used to connect to a MongoDB cluster. By default, it will monitor the topology of the cluster, keeping track of any changes, such as servers being added or removed.


Collection is the client-side abstraction of a MongoDB Collection. It can be used to perform collection-level operations such as CRUD operations. A Collection can be obtained through a Database by calling either Database::collection or Database::collection_with_options.


A Cursor streams the result of a query. When a query is made, a Cursor will be returned with the first batch of results from the server; the documents will be returned as the Cursor is iterated. When the batch is exhausted and if there are more results, the Cursor will fetch the next batch of documents, and so forth until the results are exhausted. Note that because of this batching, additional network I/O may occur on any given call to Cursor::next. Because of this, a Cursor iterates over Result<Document> items rather than simply Document items.


Database is the client-side abstraction of a MongoDB database. It can be used to perform database-level operations or to obtain handles to specific collections within the database. A Database can only be obtained through a Client by calling either Client::database or Client::database_with_options.
