Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1166) JCR2SPI does not provide actual size on RangeIterator.getSize()
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2007 18:33:43 GMT

angela commented on JCR-1166:
-----------------------------

i would suggest modify the LazyItemIterator to apply the same logic as present currently in
the query.NodeIteratorImpl:

- take the size of original collection as estimation for the number of Items available during
iteration.
- recalculated the size if entries that cannot be resolved to Items are found during the iteration.

this would have the following benefits:
- if nothing changes in the meantime the size estimate is accurate
- no extra effort to calculate the size upon/before creating the iterator
- don't modify lazy behaviour of the iterator

drawback:
- size may shrink during iteration.

> Currently, JCR2SPI always returns -1 on RangeIterator.getSize().
> This return value is legal (meaning "unknown"), but may cause clients to simply iterate
through the whole list when what they really want is simply the count.
> Use case:
> "The use case is to count the number of members of a NT_FOLDER without having to open
up the NT_FOLDER and count all the members (and I assume load them into memory) "
> To make this happen we probably need to move away from simple Iterators on the SPI level,
and put quite some additional work into JCR2SPI.
> Feedback appreciated.
