Row Level FunctionsΒΆ

The Oracle cartridge interface allows for domain index operators to do full index searches or row level searches. The cartridge must implement both. In this cartridge, both implementations do a full table search using the RMI server (even for the row level search a few hundred RMI call-outs are going to take longer than a complete search).

It appears that the optimizer always chooses a full index scan (though this could change in the future). Dbms_output messages indicate which implementation is used when a domain operator is used.
