MonogDB : Why every time user has to use "db" rather than using an actual database name ?

+2 votes

I have couple of databases named as abc, xyz. If I want to use database "xyz" then type command "use xyz". Command in console show output as "switched to db xyz" but still an user uses commands start with "db" rather than actual name "xyz" why ?

it is because 'db' refers to current database name so all operations executes inside current database rather than any other database.
