Subject Re: [jr3] Flat hierarchy
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 13:35:56 GMT

A Jackrabbit repository is "some kind of" b-tree - just that the pages
never split and balanced automatically. Maybe using b-tree is
confusing? Let's call it "manual b-tree" then.

I agree. Using the b-tree style wouldn't slow down the standard case.
In the standard case things would stay exactly like they are now.

That's definitely an option. I just wonder if it's really required. I
guess we will find out.
