Subject Re: Does Atlas really support Gremlin queries?
Date Mon, 18 Jan 2016 13:59:48 GMT
Hi Hemanth,

The Atlas DSL API does not support ORDER BY and LIMIT as of yet. It returns
the complete result set and does not scale well if you have a lot of data.

See also

is definitely nice to have but it forces the client to filter out the
results instead of pushing the processing to the server.

If the DSL is extended to support ORDER BY and LIMIT it will be the
preferable way to search the repository but until that functionality is
implemented using Gremlin queries seems to be the only option.
