There seems to be a 16MB limit on the size of a BSONobj passed mongodb. For now I'd like to increase this limit and carry on. Is there a simple way to achieve this?
I'm pretty sure that this is unfortunately a fixed limit. See also https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/limits/#bson-documents
Thanks for pointing that out the unfortunate source of that unexpected limitation. OK, so my document contains a dozens of very long strings (XML), so I decided to compress them. To that end I defined a compressedString type that automatically converts to and from string, and used that type instead of string in the struct used by the mongodb insert. Here's the essential idea.
this( string s)
this = s;
string cnvrt() @property
if( data.length == 0) return "";
void cnvrt(string value) @property
data = compress(value);
alias cnvrt this;
However, apparently vibe.d serialization to BSON engaged by the insert query detects the ability to convert struct fields of type compressedString to/from string, and uses that conversion to string as part of serialization, thus undoing the compression.
Easy enough to work around, by making conversion to string manual. But does vibe.d provide a way for this to be done with both conversions present?
