Module: Card::Query::AbstractQuery::Tie

Included in:
Card::Query::AbstractQuery
Defined in:
card/lib/card/query/abstract_query/tie.rb

Overview

The “Tie” methods support tying two queries (CardQuery, ReferenceQuery, etc) together. The “fasten” variable determines which tying strategy is used.

We currently support three values for “fasten”: :join, :exist, and :in

In concept, here’s how the different strategies would tie table A to table B in SQL assuming A.id = B.a_id

  • :join … FROM A JOIN B ON A.id = B.a_id
  • :exist … FROM A WHERE EXISTS (SELECT * FROM B WHERE A.id = B.a_id …)
  • :in … FROM A WHERE A.id IN (SELECT B.a_id FROM B WHERE …)

The different strategies will return the same values but the relative speed is context dependent.
