- (Neo4j::Wrapper::HasN::DeclRel) has_n(rel_type)

Specifies a relationship between two node classes. Generates assignment and accessor methods for the given relationship. Both incoming and outgoing relationships can be declared, see DeclRel

Examples:

has_n(:files)


class FolderNode
   include Ne4j::NodeMixin
   has_n(:files)
end

folder = FolderNode.new
folder.files << Neo4j::Node.new << Neo4j::Node.new
folder.files.inject {...}

FolderNode.files #=> 'files' the name of the relationship

has_n(x).to(…)


# You can declare which class it has relationship to.
# The generated relationships will be prefixed with the name of that class.
class FolderNode
   include Ne4j::NodeMixin
   has_n(:files).to(File)
   # Same as has_n(:files).to("File")
end

FolderNode.files #=> 'File#files' the name of the relationship

has_n(x).from(class, has_n_name)


# generate accessor method for traversing and adding relationship on incoming nodes.
class FileNode
   include Ne4j::NodeMixin
   has_one(:folder).from(FolderNode.files)
   # or same as
   has_one(:folder).from(FolderNode, :files)
end

Using Cypher

# from FolderNode example above
folder.files.query{ cypher query DSL, see neo4j-core}
folder.files{ } # same as above
folder.files.query(:name => 'file.txt') # a cypher query with WHERE and statements
folder.files(:name => 'file.txt') # same as above
folder.files.query.to_s # the cypher query explained as a String

Returns:

end

- (Neo4j::Wrapper::HasN::DeclRel) has_one(rel_type)

Specifies a relationship between two node classes. Generates assignment and accessor methods for the given relationship Old relationship is deleted when a new relationship is assigned. Both incoming and outgoing relationships can be declared, see DeclRel

Examples:


class FileNode
   include Ne4j::NodeMixin
   has_one(:folder)
end

file = FileNode.new
file.folder = Neo4j::Node.new
file.folder # => the node above
file.folder_rel # => the relationship object between those nodes
