Subject [OT] Working with File System
Date Mon, 21 Oct 2002 10:45:39 GMT
Hey All,

If we are storing large amounts of files on the server, is it acceptable
(performance wise) to be querying directories straight from the file
system?  I realize Tomcat does this for directory browsing, but I don't
know if it will scale well enough that I would need to cache the

My idea is to query the file system and use their hash code as a look up
in the DB for extra properties as added by the user (description, etc).

Thanks in advance for any information,
