I do need to use API calls to be able to get some CouchDB files and apparently I have to do a lot of processing, doing that directly in the URLConnection ContentReceived EventHandler will end up blocking the UI and maybe making the app unresponsive so I needed a solution that would maybe run in some threads and do all the process .
The process is the following .
- Access the API and fetch all the id’s for a filter , around 13 k of them .
- access API and process each id from point 1 and get basic details from each file assigned to that id
- access each file based on the point 2 and process it could be between 20 k and 80 k calls
4 in each file at point 3 access it’s attachments and process them individually , here last status I got , around 600k files to process .
Any idea how this process could be done the best way and to keep the UI still responsive while processing the data and get recurrent calls on the points above ?
So In this case could be appropriate to add a control on the interface and handle some of the data processing in the ContentReceived event or have it as a dynamic property and use handle and weakaddressof and handle all in a thread ? if second part, what would be the best way to handle this ? any example would be appreciated .
