Storing Tree like Hierarchy Structures With MongoDB, Part 2

, 6 Jan 2013 CC (ASA 3U)
Article demonstrates three approaches for storing tree like structures with NoSQL databases on example of the MongoDB
use TreeMongo;

//assume, we want to move  LG(24,25) with parent Electronics(1,46) to new location with a parent
// Cell_Phones_and_Smartphones as a last child

//Step 1 - remove LG node from tree
// see noderemoval example

//Step2 take right value of the new parent
var newparent = db.categoriesNSO.findOne({_id:"Cell_Phones_and_Smartphones"});
//new node will have left value of the parent's right value and right value - incremented by one parent's right one
var nodetomove = {_id:'LG', left:newparent.right,right:newparent.right+1, parent:newparent._id}

//now we have to create the place for the new node
//update affects right values of all nodes on a further traversal path
//3th and 4th parameters: false stands for upsert=false and true stands for multi=true
db.categoriesNSO.update({right:{$gte:newparent.right}},{$inc:{right:2}}, false, true)

//and affects all nodes that remain for traversal
db.categoriesNSO.update({left:{$gte:newparent.right}},{$inc:{left:2}}, false, true)

// ready to insert


  After Step1 removal LG: node:
