´╗┐For what it's worth (as mostly an observer of subclipse-dev out of
general interest), I think batching DB inserts/updates *should* help
performance quite a bit. I worked on the Snap project
(http://snap-photo.sourceforge.net -- but now abandoned) and we used a
DB cache with SQLite for photo metadata. Once we realized how big a
bottleneck the inserts were, we tried a number of things including
batching, and batching gave us an order-of-magnitude performance
improvement. I would definitely suggest trying batching before moving on
to serialization or another technique.

Subject: [Subclipse-dev] Revision graph and cache implementation

The current implementation of the cache does not meet my personal
expectations. I think that queries are fast but inserting and updating
the cache is very slow. Maybe the embedded database is a bottleneck.
I'm thinking about to implement the cache using Java serialization.
In the current database structure I use a "files" table to store the
branches information and I give a unique ID to each file. That ID is
shared between a file and its branches. This is, one ID = one graph.
Every file path involved in the graph has the same ID in the database.
So I think that maybe it could be possible to have:
* One file for storing the "files" information (branches and unique IDs).
* One file per file ID. All the information to show a graph would be
in one of these files.
Those files would be written and read using serialization.
I'm not sure. Before making a new implementation I can do some things
to improve the performance. I can try to find if there is some query
against the database especially slow and fix it (for example, a query
needs an index). And I can try to implement the cache using batch
updates. But I would like to know your opinions.
Nevertheless making a new implementation using serialization won't
take me much time. Probably a few days.
