I would like to know, which gives faster result, sort using java or using oracle sort queries. I mean,
I am developing an application wherein, I need to pull data from Mainframe database using MQ Series & display it on web. I have two ways to do it.
1) Pull the data from mainframe & put in temparory table in Oracle & then sort the table as needed using sql query & display the results on web page.
2) Pull the data from mainframe & pass it on to java code which sorts the data based on particular field & then display it on web page.
Note : Sorting will be done only on 1 column at a time.
Which method will give me faster results method 1 or method 2?
Awaiting your suggestions..
