Simple CRUD with POJOs
- The below example explained for creating a simple POJO and doing standard CRUD operation on it.
Creating a simple POJO

- The annotation
@JsonInclude(JsonInclude.Include.NON_NULL)tells jackson not to serialize null fields into JSON. So, for example, if the id property is null you wont have the id property in the resulting JSON at all.
- Additionally, the
@JsonProperty("_rev")annotations are directives, informing the serializer/unserializer what JSON properties to map these values to. Documents in CouchDB must have both a _id and a _rev field, thus all POJOs which you intent to persist in CouchDB, must include a id and revision properties as above. You are free to name your properties differently in the POJO, as long as you don't change the annotations.

- And finally, we should delete the instance, its as simple as
