[mapguide-users] Fusion + Oracle datasource problem

Hi Klaus,

this is something that others have reported to me as well, it seems  
that Fusion does some dumb things on initialization that it doesn't  
really need to do, including retrieving the schema of layers in the  
MapDefinition.  Fixing this will require some rearchitecting of how  
Fusion starts up and what info is actually needed to be returned to  
the client.  There are actually two blocking points, one is getting  
too much info from the database (which appears to be very slow) and  
the other happens when a MapDefinition contains a lot of layers and/or  
thematic layers with lots of classes, Fusion generates a large  
response that has to be evaluated in the client and this causes a long  
delay too.

Both are probably unnecessary or can be minimized, but it will take  
some time.  I hope that this will be part of the next Fusion release.
