This method retrieves all connected edges to or from this vertex.
In a Graph database, edges represent relationships between vertices. These relationships have a direction, leading from one vertex to another. Using this method, you can retrieve all edges that connect to this vertex or connect from this vertex.
Edges in OrientDB have direction and class. In the case of direction, the edge is created pointing from one vertex to another. This direction is implemented as the
ODirection class. Additionally, edges like all records have classes internal to the database, which are implemented as
OClass instance. On the database they either belong to the
E class, or a class that extends the
The first method uses the
E class, and thus retrieves all edges that connect to or from the vertex. The remaining methods allow you to define which database class of edges you want to retrieve.
