$near query through Java


I want to run a $near query on a collection through Java. I am not sure how to use QeuryBuilder or BasicDbObject for this. What is the correct way to run $near query through Java code. Below is my code for document structure. "location" attribute stores type as point and coordinates stores the lat-long. I have created a 2dsphere index on this collection.

BasicDBObject doc = new BasicDBObject("attr1", nextLine[0]) .append("attr2", nextLine[1]) .append("edge-metro-code", nextLine[6]) .append("location", new BasicDBObject("type", "Point") .append("coordinates",latLong)) .append("attr3", nextLine[9]) .append("attr4", nextLine[10])


First you'll need a maxDistance and a referential point to calculate near documents. The code bellow shows how to build a DBObject to query near documents.

double[] coords = new double[2]; long distance = 100; DBObject query = BasicDBObjectBuilder.start() .push("location") .add("$maxDistance", distance) .push("$near") .push("$geometry") .add("type", "Point") .add("coordinates", coords) .get();

This will result in that json:

{ "location": { "$maxDistance": 100, "$near": { "$geometry": { "type": "Point", "coordinates": [ 0, 0 ] } } } }

If you're using mongodb 2.2, the code above will not work. I have to use the following:

double[] coords = new double[2]; long distance = 100; DBObject query = BasicDBObjectBuilder.start() .push("location") .add("$maxDistance", distance) .add("$near", coords) .get();

The json will be:

{ "location" : { "$maxDistance" : 100, "$near" : [ 0, 0 ] } }
