Karsten Lehmann 21 December 2010 12:40:33I was just doing a Notes view->Symphony export by using a Composite Application with a 8.5.1 client and (once again) noticed that only 25 of the selected documents were transferred via the CA wire.
The issue was not new to me, I think it's in the product since 8.0.1:
IBM did this as a performance optimization to not transfer too much data between the legacy C client process and the Expeditor framework for every selection change.
But what I often forget is the name of the Notes.ini variable to work around it and increase the number of documents.
I always remember that Julian Robichaux once wrote about the issue when he was publishing his LS09 demo plugin, so I did a Google search using a search query like "java view notes.ini 25 julian" and voilà, here it is:
WMCSELECTION_MAXDOCUMENTS, for example WMCSELECTION_MAXDOCUMENTS=5000 to transfer up to 5000 documents
Looks like there is still no official IBM technote available, but at least now there's a second article about this on the web that helps me (and maybe others) to find the workaround.
Note: I haven't checked in 8.5.2 GA and 8.5.3 code drops yet, if this variable is still necessary, but - as everybody is focused on XPages dev now - I would not expect to see many changes in this area of the product in future versions.
