Subject RE: queryForPaginatedList, stored procedures and output parameter s
Date Fri, 17 Dec 2004 22:20:10 GMT
queryForList has the same problem unless I pull the whole list at once,
which I can't (huge result sets). But it seems to me that the behavior of
queryForList could be modified to call getMoreResults, since the result set
is no longer needed once you get your last row.

Even so, it looks like the result set that is created when using
queryForList is not forward only, so in SqlExecutor.handleResults it can't
use rs.absolute(skipResults) to jump ahead, and has to go one-by-one over
the rows I want to skip (which could be a very large number of rows). I'm
not sure why the result set is not forward only, or what I can do to ensure
that it is. But again, if iBATIS won't go to the end of the result set or
call getMoreResults before trying to get output parameters, queryForList is
no better than queryForPaginatedList.

Is there anything else I can do? I really like iBATIS and want to move away
from our home-grown JDBC code.

parameter s

Perhaps we could make this an optional setting for using PaginatedList
in concert with a Stored Procedure that has return parameters.
Although the performance gain that you are receiving from the
PaginatesList is diminished by having to traverse the whole resultset
in order to retrieve your output parameters. Why not use a
queryForList and handle the paging manually for now?
