Explore some of the API methods that will take you further than the simple program.
This section assumes you have downloaded and set up a compatible version of Couchbase Server and have at least one instance of Couchbase Server and one data bucket established. If you need to set up these items, you can do with the Couchbase Administrative Console, or Couchbase Command-Line Interface (CLI), or the Couchbase REST-API. For information and instructions, see:
