Set methods and properties.


A Set represents a group of values, for example, documents in a Collection. When a Set is returned from a query, it is materialized into a page of results that includes a subset of the Set with a pagination cursor.

Some set methods have lazy loading, as opposed to eager loading, in that they compute the result when the data is needed instead of instantly. Eager methods return a result set instantly. Lazy methods return a result set when the query forces the set to be materialized. See the individual method description for whether it is lazy loading or not. For distinct() and order() the full set is read to get the distinct and ordered version when a page on the set is materialized.
