Subject initial page allocation versus incremental allocation
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 23:27:40 GMT
I see that there's a property to allow configuring the number of pages to
initially allocate to a table, derby.storage.initialPages, but there isn't a
property to allow for setting the number of pages to allocate when
incrementally expanding the file container. It looks like RawStoreFactory
might've allowed for this with 


                public static final String PRE_ALLOCATE_PAGE =


but this isn't reference by anything I can find.  FileContainer fixes the
incremental expansion to 8 pages with the DEFAULT_PRE_ALLOC_SIZE constant.


What was the reason for not allowing the pre-allocation setting to be
configurable? Were there adverse affects on FileContainer if it was
increased to something like 100 pages?
