      The Java API provide most of the time access to the JSON document (as string):

      • get commands
      • view command using the ViewRow.getDocument

      When we call a view the result is a ViewResponse, but it is not possible to get the JSON document out of it, and the view engine returned a JSON doc.

      It could be interesting for some development, to be able to do a viewResponse.toJSON() that returns the exact result of the view. (this function may not be compliant with the includesDoc(true) option)

      The use case is simple, suppose I am creating a REST API and I would like to call the view and return the result to the user it would be good to do something like :


      { "application/json"}

      public String getPersons( )

      { View view = client.getView(PERSON_DSGN_DOC, PERSON_BY_NAME_VIEW); Query query = new Query(); ViewResponse viewResponse = client.query(view, query); return viewResponse.toJSON(); }

      Today I have to loop on each result and create a new object/document
