Data Source Explorer eXist db xmlrpc slow

Post by Darin » Tue Jul 21, 2020 1:51 am

I am connecting to exist db 5.1.1 and 5.0.0 using xmlrpc. I am using the wizard to copy the jars. When navigating the database using the Data source explorer, the collections are taking a long time to open, even when there are just 20 or fewer resources inside is can take like 15 to 30 seconds. It is not slow when opening a file. If I connect with WebDAV to the same database, it is super fast--no delay.

Hi Darin,

What Oxygen version are you using? Is the Exist server far away location-wise?
I'm not sure what the problem is, for the xmlrpc connection we are just calling APIs in the JAR libraries, so the delay should not be on our side. We have automated tests with Exist 5.2.0, also when working with our internal test servers we have not noticed this delay.
The problem could be anywhere, it could either be a problem in Exist 5.1 which was fixed in 5.2, it could be some server side configuration which leads to this delay, maybe some kind of time out followed by a fallback, or it may be in the client side JAR libraries or in the Oxygen code, somehow triggered by your particular content.
Are you registered on the "" Exist users list? Maybe you could ask the same question there (or I could ask there if you want). I wonder if there are more Oxygen end users experiencing this problem and maybe some of them have found a solution for this.
