How to ask the graph what relationships exist between two vertices? In my case I have two known 'Person' nodes each connected via a 'member_of' edge to a shared 'Organization' node. Each 'Person' is also a 'member_of' other 'Organization's.
select intersect(out('member_of').org_name) from Person where name in ["nagu", "rohit"]
This example shows how to form where clause in order to query/ filter based on properties of connected vertices.
DocElem and Model are subclasses of V and hasModel of E.
insert into DocElem set uri = 'domain.tdl', type = "paragraph" insert into Model set hash = '0e1f', model = "hello world" create edge hasModel from #12:2738 to #13:2658
User wishes to query those vertices filtering on certain properties of DocElem and Model.
To fetch the Model vertices where DocElem.type = "paragraph" and connected vertex Model has the property model like '%world%'
select from (select expand(out('hasModel')) from DocElem where type = "paragraph") where model like "%world%"
To find instead the DocElem vertices, use this (assuming that a DocElem is only connected to one Model):
select * from DocElem where type = "paragraph" and out('hasModel').model like '%world%'
How to apply built-in math functions on projections? For example, to use the sum() function over 2 values returned from sub-queries using projections, the following syntax may be used:
select sum($a.count,$b.count) let $a = (select count(*) from e), $b = (select count(*) from v)
Given the following schema: Vertices are connected with Edges of type RELATED which have property count. 2 vertices can have connection in both ways at the same time.
Need to build a query that, for a given vertex Vn, will find all vertices connected with RELATED edge to this Vn and also, for each pair [Vn, Vx] will calculate SUM of in_RELATED.count and out_RELATED.count.
For that simple example above, this query result for V1 would be
select v.name, sum(count) as cnt from ( select if(eval("in=#17:0"),out,in) as v,count from E where ( in=#17:0 or out=#17:0) ) group by v order by cnt desc
This was discussed in the google groups over here: "https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/orient-database/CRR-simpmLg". Thanks to Andrey for posing the problem.
