ReQL command: toList

Command syntax

result.toList() → List


Retrieve all results from a result as a list.

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

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


The equivalent query with a for loop would be:

try(Result<Object> result = r.table("users").run(conn)) {
    for (Object doc : result) {

Note: Because a feed is a result 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.
