Many thanks to those of you who have replied to my questions in the past.
I'm curious if anyone is currently working on a streaming API for large
values inserted into the store? I've noticed a thread or two mentioning
such an API but I do not see anything in the latest source image that reflects
this sort of functionality.
After looking at the code, I'm thinking that most of the changes to support
this functionality are needed in the BaseRecordManager and the
PhysicalRowIdManager classes. That is, in addition to the methods that accept
byte, add new methods to handle a subclass of outputstream which can handle
large values (I think Bryan mentioned a "PersistentOutputStream").
My apologies if this is at all confusing or if I am way off, just looking for
suggestions and guidance before I lead myself down a particular path.
