Retrieve topicDetails in diffusion clients

    Hi John,

    Our Java and Android API will both be able to enumerate topic details on a given topic. Although, our unified JS API is not able to do this.

    In regards to the performance of fetch requests in 5.6, we've made numerous optimisations across the server which may alleviate the impacts you saw previously. Although, in order to obtain a precise idea on how much of an improvement you'd achieve in 5.6, we'd recommend rigorous pre-production tests to measure this.

    Thanks,
    Dimeji

    What about IOS? is it expected that this feature will be added to the JS API any time soon? As an aside the documentation "Any client can also explicitly request any level of detail for any topic." should be updated.

    Was there a specific issue resolved to increase the performance of fetch, or are they just general improvements? and do these same issues apply to requesting topicData?

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    Thanks, we'll update the docs accordingly. The retrieval of topic details isn't available in the iOS - I believe this in only available in our Java, Android and .NET APIs.

    The improvements in 5.6 were mainly general - none were targeted at improving the performance of fetch operations (over a potentially large set of topics). As a consequence of the advances that were made, expensive fetch operations may also see an improvement. I'd strongly recommend rigorous performance tests around this prior to deployment.

    Thanks,
    Dimeji
