Re: Paging Support
OK, without paging support how are people handling large result sets? I
need to be able to retrieve a set of a few thousand records and work
with it. The client reading it will only be using it in about 50 record
chunks. Do I have to fetch the whole set, cache it on the client side
and page it?
