Those of you who want to learn more about the truly marvellous concept of MapReduce (thanks, Google!) or just want to play with the can't-believe-it's-free CouchDB, here is a connector I wrote a while back that supports both CouchDB and Cloudant. All you need to do is download a free copy of CouchDB (painless install and loads of fun), or sign up for your free Cloudant db in the cloud at https://cloudant.com/sign-up/.
And if you run an AL with the component in the Debugger, you can step through and set breakpoints in the Connector Script itself, giving you a bird's eye view of how it actually behaves in action.
This is an as-is component and can absolutely be improved on! Enjoy and let me know if you have questions or make any improvements that you want to share:
CouchDB/Cloudant Connector - right-click and Save As.
Then use File > Import in TDI to create your own
CouchDB project. Contains a number of test ALs, although
you will need to update parameters for your own DBs.
