Description Jonas Sicking (Not reading bugmail) 2012-04-01 21:01:37 UTC
Basically the idea is to be able to get several distinct keys from for example a objectStore.get operation.

This is especially interesting for index.get since it would remove the need for authors to remove duplicate records.

Not sure if the answer is to allow passing multiple keys to an IDBKeyRange constructor, or if the answer is allowing objectStore.get/index.openCursor etc to take an array of keys+IDBKeyRanges.

Filing this for consideration for v2

We had a get-together with google on a variety of topics and this bug was discussed. General feelings was that this wasn't urgent.

We're thinking of tackling this with a combination of two new entry points:

IDBObjectStore/IDBIndex#getAll(keys [, count]) - implemented in FF, WIP in Chrome

IDBKeySet - a set (*gasp*!) of keys.

getAll() and existing methods that take a key-or-range would be extended to take key-or-range-or-set.
