  • Setting collection on MongoItemReader?

    The MongoItemWriter supports explicitely setting the collection to be written too.

    The MongoItemReader does not support setting a collection to be read from.

    Is this a conscious design decision? If yes, what is the reasoning behind this decision?

    Thanks. Thomas

    It was expected that the collection to be queried from would be part of the query provided in the Reader. On the write side, you don't have a query to obtain that information from.

      That makes sense. Thank you for the answer.

        Is it possible to do this via the query?

        We are trying to get out raw JSON for an entire collection ie tpye = String, query = {}. I don't think its possible to set the collection in the query - there needs to be an option on the MongoItemReader to do this.
