Subject Re: Performance of a large number of small nodes
Date Sat, 15 Aug 2009 04:32:29 GMT
Hi Bertrand,

Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, even in the simplest case of 100
nodes in the root node, the time taken to retrieve is too long. If I could
resolve this fundamental speed issue then I could apply your solution to
help me scale my system.

I think I just need to bite the bullet and admit my use case doesn't really
map on Jackrabbit :)
