Hope this is a quick question. I can find nothing on it after much Googling.

I'm using spring's mongo stuff.

How can I convert/cast a spring DBRef to a DBObject?

I have a class that has a collection of DBRefs:



At some point, I must iterate and access them:



What can one do in lieu of the deprecated fetch()?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Actually a BasicDBObject class is a list of Objects.
While querying you can directly cast to a DBObject. if you are not sure about what the object is, then you can add check whether the object is instanceOf DBObject.



if you are not sure about what the object is, then you can add check whether the object is instanceOf DBObject as below



Thanks,

I'm not following. In my example the DBList is a list of DBRefs these are not DBObjects and casting does not work.
Am I reading you correctly?

 
I didn't do it. You can't prove it. Nobody saw me. The sheep are lying! This tiny ad is my witness!
