Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1294) Add size() and hasNext() methods to cursors
Date Sat, 30 Oct 2010 18:26:21 GMT


Felix Knecht commented on DIRSERVER-1294:

It depends on which Cursor you mainly have thought of. Following Cursors can be implemented

- EntryToResponseCursor (ApacheDS)
- CursorList (Shared)
- EmptyCursor (Shared)
- ListCursor (Shared)
- SingletonCursor (Shared)

- SearchCursorImpl (Shared)

- BaseEntryFilteringCursor (ApacheDS)

So the question is 'What to do?'

1. Just close the issue as 'Won't fix'
2. Implement where possible and otherwise throw an UnsupportedOperationException
3. Create a 'Interface CursorPlus extends Cursor<E>' and implement this interface where
the functions 'size(), hasNext(), hasPrevious()' are implementable.

I feel bad for solution 2 because it throws an Exception -> a developer has to trap in
the first time before realising that it's not possible to use it...

> The cursor implementation currently does not have the size() and hasNext() methods. They
would be very helpful in ma,ny places.
> For instance, the paged search control requires that the response control contains the
expected size. The hasNext() method could help to avoid a next() and previous() calls to check
if we have one more entry available in the cursor.
