ReQL command: toList

Command syntax



Retrieve all results from a cursor as a list.

RethinkDB cursors can be iterated through via the Java Iterable and Iterator interfaces; to coerce a cursor into a list, use toList.

Example: For small result sets it may be more convenient to process them at once as a list.

Cursor cursor = r.table("users").run(conn);
List users = cursor.toList();

The equivalent query with a for loop would be:

Cursor cursor = r.table("users").run(conn);
for (Object doc : cursor) {

Note: Because a feed is a cursor that never terminates, using list with a feed will never return. Use for or next instead. See the changes command for more information on feeds.
