Specify an edge from a traversal.




The addE() step is a map of sideEffect. An edge is added from a traversal g using addE between two existing vertices. A previously created edge label must be specified.


Create an edge with an edge label knows between two vertices, stephenSmith and johnDoe. The first two lines assign the already existing vertices to variable names for use in the addE() step.

// Get two users to join with an edge
johnDoe = g.V().has('name','John Doe').next()
stephenSmith = g.V().has('name','Stephen Smith').next()
// Create the edge between Stephen and John
