import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;
import com.fourspaces.couchdb.Database;
import com.fourspaces.couchdb.Document;
import com.fourspaces.couchdb.Session;

public class CouchDBTest {

 /*These are the keys of student document in couch db*/
 public static final String STUDENT_KEY_NAME ="name";
 
 public static final String STUDENT_KEY_MARKS ="marks";
 
 public static final String STUDENT_KEY_ROLL="roll";
 
 
 public static void main(String[] args){
  
  /*Creating a session with couch db running in 5984 port*/
  Session studentDbSession = new Session("localhost",5984);
  
  /*Selecting the 'student' database from list of couch database*/
  Database studentCouchDb = studentDbSession.getDatabase("student");
  
  /*Creating a new Document*/
  Document newdoc = new Document();
  
  /*Map for list of properties for the new document*/
  Map<String , String> properties = new HashMap<String,String>();
  
  properties.put(STUDENT_KEY_NAME, "saan");
  
  properties.put(STUDENT_KEY_MARKS, "67");
  
  properties.put(STUDENT_KEY_ROLL, "12");
  
  
  /*Adding all the properties to the new document*/
  newdoc.putAll(properties);
  
  /*Saving the new document in the 'student' database */
  studentCouchDb.saveDocument(newdoc);  
  
 }
}
  • We can open the Futon and verify that the document is added to "student" Database.The screenshot,
