yesterday I was asked by a colleague on data partitioning. He wanted to partition 100000s of Entities in blocks of 1000 for sending a single Database update for 1000 entities.
Below is the simplified input, partition size is N=3 and the requested output. Below that is the solution I provided.
Here are my questions: * can this task be done without recursion in EXSLT? [the colleage did not like the idea of doing the partitioning with just XPath (1<=position()<=1000, 1001<=position()<=2000, ...) because of the 6 digit number of entities]
