      This is great. Pity I have to use server-side programming. Server-side programming is the devil for a number of reasons.
      It would be great if DocumentDB supported transactions without the need for stored procedure.

      @Joseph: Thanks!


      I hear ya and would love to see transactions supported without server-side programming. Would you mind voting on the user-voice page? It helps the product team prioritize features:

      I'd also love to make server-side programming NOT the devil... Feel free to shoot me ideas (tweet me at twitter.com/aliuy8 or e-mail me at andrl {at} microsoft) :)

      Amazing functionality Andrew, thanks for sharing.
      Writing Stored Procedures with JavaScript will be a pain for service engineers with little front-end skills though.. but I love it :)
