Hi Nano,

A tangent question: just to make sure, when you say "big data", do you
mean that the string in your database is huge, or do you mean that the
table itself has many rows that make searching for a row very slow?

If it's the latter, then you may want to check that your table is


If your tables are not indexed, adding an appropriate column index may
speed up your object construction dramatically.  In some cases, it may
speed it so much that you may not need to worry so much about keeping
search results in memory.

Good luck to you!
