Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-837) Adding stale=partial
Date Tue, 27 Jul 2010 14:20:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-837?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12892792#action_12892792

Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-837:
-------------------------------------------

@Jason - Good point on idempotent GET's
@Filipe - I don't really like it. There's nothing about "stale=relaxed" that in any way indicates
what its for. A good test might be to ask #couchdb "what does stale=ok do, and if stale=relaxed
existed, what would you guess it does". Unless someone's been paying attention to this ticket
I'd doubt that they're going to come up with "its stale=ok but starts a re-indexing pass".
Then again, I agree with @jchris, I don't have any better ideas so its up to you.

> Inspired by Matthias' latest post, at http://www.paperplanes.de/2010/7/26/10_annoying_things_about_couchdb.html,
section "Views are updated on read access", I added a new value to the "stale" option named
"partial" (possibly we need to find a better name).
> It behaves exactly like "stale=ok" but after replying to the client, it triggers a view
update in the background.
> Patch attached.
> If no one disagrees this isn't a good feature, or suggest a better parameter value name,
I'll commit.
