Displaying more than 500 records per page in a jsp
posted 8 years ago
Hi, I have to display about 500 to 1000 records per page in a jsp and those records are coming from an arraylist. Will it be a performance hit and if yes how can i avoid that. Just to be explicit the records will be shown using the display tag in a jsp.

Yes. By definition you would be creating and downloading a huge page. The best way to avoid the performance hit and create a more usable page is to add paging and only show 20, 50, etc records at a time.
When was the last time you read 1000 records on a page? Did you enjoy the experience? Was it easy and clear to use?
