The CFCouchbase SDK is a CFML library for interacting with Couchbase NoSQL Server . It can be used by any CFML application or CFML framework to provide them with NoSQL, distributed caching, dynamic queries and many more capabilities .



The CFCouchbase SDK wraps the Couchbase Java SDK and enhances it to provide with a nice dynamic language syntax and usability.

// Create the client
defaultClient = new cfcouchbase.CouchbaseClient();
// Create a document in the cluster
defaultClient.set( id='brad', value={ name: 'Brad', age: 33, hair: 'red' } );
// Retrieve that doc
person = defaultClient.get( id='brad' );
// Use the document
writeOutput( ' is #person.age# years old and has hair.<p>' );
// Create another client that connects to the beer-sample bucket
beerClient  = new cfcouchbase.CouchbaseClient( {bucketName='beer-sample'} );
// Execute a query and return the top 10 results
results = beerClient.query( 
      options={ includeDocs=true, limit=10 } );

// Iterate and present results
for( result in results ) {
    writeOutput( & '<br>');
// Shutdown the clients
