Subject [jira] [Created] (JCR-3722) Query: an index is used even where traversing is faster
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 11:08:08 GMT
Thomas Mueller created JCR-3722:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Query: an index is used even where traversing is faster
                 Key: JCR-3722
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3722
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: query
            Reporter: Thomas Mueller
            Assignee: Thomas Mueller


Currently, for queries that can use an index, the index is always preferred over traversing
over the nodes. For joins, sometimes is much faster to traverse, specially the exact path
is known. Example:

{noformat}
/jcr:root/testroot/b[@jcr:uuid]
{noformat}

This query will use the index on "jcr:uuid", and traverse over all nodes with the property
"jcr:uuid", even thought in fact only one node would need to be read when using the TraversingIndex.

The problems are: Currently, the TraversingIndex is not even asked to estimate the cost. Also,
the cost estimation of the TraversingIndex is incorrect for such cases. 

We will also need to verify and fix the cost estimation of the other indexes (for example
the PropertyIndex) conforms the QueryIndex API (getCost is supposed to return the estimated
number of entries to traverse).
