Overview

This proposal is a continuation of FDO RFC 34(http://trac.osgeo.org/fdo/wiki/FDORfc34). FDO RFC 34 has enhanced the capability of FdoIReader to support indexed access. This proposal is to enhance the reader interfaces in MapGuide Feature Service API to support indexed access too.

Motivation

To provide faster access to data returned from MapGuide Feature Service API. To provide enhanced compatibility with ADO.Net Reader/Record? Interfaces.

Proposed Solution

The following reader interfaces will be updated to allow for indexed access.

Interface MgReader?

The following existing classes in MapGuide will be updated accordingly:

MgProxyFeatureReader?, MgProxyDataReader?, MgServerDataReader?, MgServerFeatureReader?, MgProxySqlDataReader?, MgServerSqlDataReader?, MgProxyGwsFeatureReader?, MgServerGwsFeatureReader?

Implications

This RFC depends on FDO RFC 34 (http://trac.osgeo.org/fdo/wiki/FDORfc34). If FDORfc34 can't be approved, this RFC won't be approved either.

It adds new virtual functions to existing reader interfaces, so API documentation needs to be updated. However, there will be no impact on existing applications.

Test Plan

New unit tests will be added to test the indexed access.

Funding/Resources?

Supplied by Autodesk.

Addendum, Sept. 15, 2009

A new function of FdoInt32 GetPropertyIndex(FdoString* propertyName); has been added with FDO RFC 34 in order to use access by index on FdoIFeatureReader and FdoIDataReader conveniently and correctly. So that function needs also to be exposed in MapGuide API too that a new method is exposed in MgReader?:

virtual INT32 GetPropertyIndex(STRING name) = 0;

This method is missing from MgReader? while it's added in there with FDO RFC 34. So it needs to be added to MgReader? for consistency with FDO.

virtual INT32 GetPropertyType(INT32 index)  = 0;
