I wonder how the two methods compare efficiency-wise?
Yes, well, we're talking about MySQL specifically ;-)
Well, with reference to Zope we shouldn't be...
Huh? the original poster was talking about MySQL, why should he care
about any other rdb?
Not so. Think of batches:
"Now showing Results 5 - 10 of 25"
But why not just return all the rows and only show 5 of them?
"Now showing Results 5 - 10 of 250000"
Yes, let's talk about batches - ZSQL doesn't implement batching so it
collects the whole set of results available so len() is available.
How would you implement batching in a way that's agnostic of the rdb used?
Result sets aren't supported directly
so unless the DA provides a method to
query on the connection or cursor you will also have to run a separate query
