How do I perform the SQL Join equivalent in MongoDB

How do I use MongoDB to perform the SQL Join equivalent?

If you have two collections (users and comments), let's suppose that I want to retrieve all the comments with pid=444 and the user information for each.

comments
  { uid:12345, pid:444, comment="blah" }
  { uid:12345, pid:888, comment="asdf" }
  { uid:99999, pid:444, comment="qwer" }

users
  { uid:12345, name:"john" }
  { uid:99999, name:"mia"  }

Is it possible to gather all the comments with a specific field (like...find(pid:444)) and the user details connected to each remark at once?

I now gather the comments that meet my requirements first, then I identify all the uids in that result set, obtain the user objects, and combine them with the results of the comments. Things seem like I'm doing it incorrectly.

The majority of the responses to this question are incorrect as of Mongo 3.2. A left outer join and the new $lookup operator that was added to the aggregate pipeline are nearly identical:

https://docs.mongodb.org/master/reference/operator/aggregation/lookup/#pipe._S_lookup

From the docs:

{
   $lookup:
     {
       from: <collection to join>,
       localField: <field from the input documents>,
       foreignField: <field from the documents of the "from" collection>,
       as: <output array field>
     }
}

Of course, Mongo is not a relational database, and the developers are cautious in their recommendations for $lookup's use cases, but at least as of version 3.2, joining is now supported by MongoDB.

To know more about Mongodb, it's recommended to join Mongodb Certification today.
