I'm using a ListModel with cached Map like this : http://books.zkoss.org/zk-mvvm-book/8.0/advanced/displaying_huge_amount_of_data.html# (http://books.zkoss.org/zk-mvvm-book/8.0/advanced/displayinghugeamountofdata.html#)

paging ok. but i don't know how to add date lively.

the data was stored in a hashMap (because with paging, user may query any page ,we load it on-demand). but the traditional ListModelList (which could update data lively),use _list to store data. so I can't make it support live date update by implements ListModelList. if override the add method like this:

public boolean add(PrShowBean p) {

    boolean ret = cache.put(indexkey,data) != null;
    fireEvent(ListDataEvent.INTERVAL_ADDED, indexkey, indexkey);
    return ret;


the added data not appear in the list,but the first item in second page appears twice.

is there any way to support both load on-demand (paging) and live update ?

you can also do real time databae pagination, in mine oppinion a better way then caching some results with lesser chance of having object states not in sync with DB

Thanks for your idea.i've study some article to understand it.but it seems as a back-end tech,while i have problem with working on the ListModel associated to the UI component.

it's a back-end tech together with front-end implementation. Why would you cache data if you need live updates? The point is to reduce network occupation. You make now 1 big call and redo those big calls while database pagination will reduce call's to the minimum to show on your screen.

switch page will fetch new live data from your DB. (if you use spring data => check out mine github https://github.com/chillworld/customdatabasepaging_listbox)

I'll try to study your code.(i'm not using spring) i'm working on a forum like project.i cache data for a thread list,this is for paging purpose. but when user start a new thread, i need to update the thread list.
