Subject queries and nodes with large properties
Date Wed, 07 Oct 2009 23:05:59 GMT
I'm new to Jackrabbit and JCR-170. This may be a FAQ or just obvious  
but I couldn't find an answer in the mailing list

In our application we store a number of metadata properties about an  
object and the object itself. The objects can be large (images,  
documents, AVIs, etc). In a lot of UI usecases when we do a query we  
do not want the object itself, just the values of the various  
properties associated with it. These are then displayed in lists on  
the UI and the user may select one of these at which point the object  
is required.

Does Jackrabbit do this efficiently? Does it just fetch and return the  
expicitly requested properties of a node or will it load all of the  
node properties every time.
