Example Data

The following examples all use a vertex collection v and an edge collection e. The vertex collection v contains continents, countries, and capitals. The edge collection e contains connections between continents and countries, and between countries and capitals.

To set up the collections and populate them with initial data, the following script was used:

db._create("v");
db._createEdgeCollection("e");

// vertices: root node 
db.v.save({ _key: "world", name: "World", type: "root" });
