Anchor and Traverse

I am trying to perform a couple of things for my anchor and traverse use case

  1. Load all the connected nodes of a certain type (used both() giving me rids but I need nodes)
  2. fetch the value of max(property) from connected nodes when I search from the initial node
    eg. node1(name = ‘alpha’) --> node2(length = 1.2)
    select max(length) where node1.name = “alpha”
    –Don’t know how to perform this operation
  3. I am not able to run the “SELECT both() FROM Node1 where name = ‘alpha’”

How to perform such operations?
