Streaming of report input data
What is the strategy when the input data for the report is huge ? Should we have to load the entire data in beforerender script (heavy memory foot print). Is there any alternate solution (used today) where I can provide a stream of data keeping scalability aspects. Your earliest responses are highly appreciated.
Templating engines don't work in the stream way and require to have all data in the memory.
You can, however, read partial data step by step using beforeRender script and aggregate (throw away what you don't need).
