JSONStore for iOS

JSONStore is a lightweight, document-oriented storage system that enables persistent storage of JSON documents for iOS applications.

Features

  • A simple API that gives developers to add, store, replace, search through documents without memorizing query syntax
  • Ability to track local changes

Installation

The JSONStore SDK is available via Cocoapods. To install, add the following pods to your Podfile.

platform :ios
pod 'JSONStore'
pod 'sqlite3'

Note that sqlite3 library is a static library and it cannot be used in conjuction with dynamic frameworks. This means you will not be able to use the use_frameworks! Cocoapods flag.

Security

For more information about how to enable security please visit the following blog.

Usage

Add the following import to your classes to start using JSONStore

#import <JSONStore/JSONStoreFramework.h>

Initialize and open connections, get an Accessor, and add data

// Create the collections object that will be initialized.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStoreCollection alloc] initWithName:@"people"];
[people setSearchField:@"name" withType:JSONStore_String];
[people setSearchField:@"age" withType:JSONStore_Integer];

// Optional options object.
JSONStoreOpenOptions* options = [JSONStoreOpenOptions new];
[options setUsername:@"hayatashin"]; //Optional username, default 'jsonstore'
[options setPassword:@"deta"]; //Optional password, default no password

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Open the collections.
[[JSONStore sharedInstance] openCollections:@[people] withOptions:options error:&error];

// Add data to the collection
NSArray* data = @[ @{@"name" : @"saito", @"age": @10} ];
int newDocsAdded = [[people addData:data andMarkDirty:YES withOptions:nil error:&error] intValue];

Find – locate documents inside the Store

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance]   getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Add additional find options (optional).
JSONStoreQueryOptions* options = [JSONStoreQueryOptions new];
[options setLimit:@10]; // Returns a maximum of 10 documents, default no limit.
[options setOffset:@0]; // Skip 0 documents, default no offset.

// Search fields to return, default: ['_id', 'json'].
[options filterSearchField:@"_id"];
[options filterSearchField:@"json"];

// How to sort the returned values , default no sort.
[options sortBySearchFieldAscending:@"name"];
[options sortBySearchFieldDescending:@"age"];

// Find all documents that match the query part.
JSONStoreQueryPart* queryPart1 = [[JSONStoreQueryPart alloc] init];
[queryPart1 searchField:@"name" equal:@"shu"];
[queryPart1 searchField:@"age" lessOrEqualThan:@10];

NSArray* results = [people findWithQueryParts:@[queryPart1] andOptions:options error:&error];

// results = @[ @{@"_id" : @1, @"json" : @{ @"name": @"shu", @"age" : @10}} ];

for (NSDictionary* result in results) {
     NSString* name = [result valueForKeyPath:@"json.name"]; // shu.
    int age = [[result valueForKeyPath:@"json.age"] intValue]; // 10
    NSLog(@"Name: %@, Age: %d", name, age);
}

Replace – change the documents that are already stored inside a Collection

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance]   getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// Find all documents that match the queries.
NSArray* docs = @[ @{@"_id" : @1, @"json" : @{ @"name": @"kenshin", @"age" : @99}} ];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Perform the replacement.
int docsReplaced = [[people replaceDocuments:docs andMarkDirty:NO error:&error] intValue];

Remove – delete all documents that match the query

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Find document with _id equal to 1 and remove it.
int docsRemoved = [[people removeWithIds:@[@1] andMarkDirty:NO error:&error] intValue];

Count – gets the total number of documents that match a query

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// Count all documents that match the query.
// The default query is @{} which will
// count every document in the collection.
JSONStoreQueryPart *queryPart = [[JSONStoreQueryPart alloc] init];
[queryPart searchField:@"name" equal:@"aiko"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Perform the count.
int countResult = [[people countWithQueryParts:@[queryPart] error:&error] intValue];

Destroy – wipes data for all users, destroys the internal storage, and clears security artifacts

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Perform the destroy.
[[JSONStore sharedInstance] destroyDataAndReturnError:&error];

Check whether a document is dirty

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Check if document with _id '1' is dirty.
BOOL isDirtyResult = [people isDirtyWithDocumentId:1 error:&error];

Check the number of dirty documents

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Check if document with _id '1' is dirty.
int dirtyDocsCount = [[people countAllDirtyDocumentsWithError:&error] intValue];

Remove a Collection

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Remove the collection.
[people removeCollectionWithError:&error];

Clear all data that is inside a Collection

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance]   getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// This object will point to an error if one occurs.
NSError* error = nil;

// Remove the collection.
[people clearCollectionWithError:&error];

Start a transaction, add some data, remove a document, commit the transaction and roll back the transaction if there is a failure

// Get the accessor to an already initialized collection.
JSONStoreCollection* people = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] getCollectionWithName:@"people"];

// These objects will point to errors if they occur.
NSError* error = nil;
NSError* addError = nil;
NSError* removeError = nil;

// You can call every JSONStore API method inside a transaction except:
// open, destroy, removeCollection and closeAll.
[[JSONStore sharedInstance] startTransactionAndReturnError:&error];

[people addData:@[ @{@"name" : @"kyo"} ] andMarkDirty:NO withOptions:nil error:&addError];

[people removeWithIds:@[@1] andMarkDirty:NO error:&removeError];

if (addError != nil || removeError != nil) {
    // Return the store to the state before start transaction was called.
    [[JSONStore sharedInstance] rollbackTransactionAndReturnError:&error];
} else {
    // Commit the transaction thus ensuring atomicity.
    [[JSONStore sharedInstance] commitTransactionAndReturnError:&error];
}

Security – enable encryption

[[JSONStore sharedInstance] setEncryption:YES];

Note that enabling encryption requires installing additional components available from IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation

Get file information

// This object will point to an error if one occurs
NSError* error = nil;

// Returns information about files JSONStore uses to persist data.
NSArray* results = [[JSONStore sharedInstance] fileInfoAndReturnError:&error];
// => [{@"name" : @"aion", @"size" : @3072}]
