You don't have to use the selection part.
You can extract the object directly from the feature reader.
Once you have the object, you can also get the extent (aka bbox).
If you then construct an envelope object, you can add the features
envelope to original envelope.
create a new MgFeatureQueryOptions with an empty filter
create a new Envelope
For Each Layer
Use a featureReader with the MgFeatureQueryOptions
Add the feature's envelope to the outer Envelope
Get zoom extents from the Envelope
Other than this, I don't think you can optimize it anymore, as you need
to execute the query on each layer.
I think there is a "Get Extents" on the feature source, but I can't find
it. And I don't think it works on filtered datasources.
Perhaps you can execute the query with some SQL optimizations like
"Select Envelope(geometry) from datasource".
Hope it helps.
