For performance issues, you can set the maximum number of cells that will be displayed in the Table Explorer view for a database table. Leave the field Limit the number of cells empty if you want the entire content of the table to be displayed. By default this field is set to 2,000. If a table having more cells than the value set here is displayed in the Table Explorer view, a warning dialog will inform you that the table is only partially shown.
In Oracle XML a container can hold millions of resources. If the node corresponding to such a container in the Data Source Explorer view would display all the contained resources at the same time the performance of the view would be very slow. To prevent such a situation only a limited number of the contained resources is displayed as child nodes of the container node. Navigation to other contained resources from the same container is enabled by the Up and Down buttons in the Data Source Explorer view. This limited number is set in the option Maximum number of children for container nodes. The default value is 200 nodes.
