PositionalDataSource

public abstract class PositionalDataSource<T extends Object> extends DataSource

Object
   ↳ DataSource
     ↳ PositionalDataSource

Position-based data loader for a fixed-size, countable data set, supporting fixed-size loads at arbitrary page positions.

Extend PositionalDataSource if you can load pages of a requested size at arbitrary positions, and provide a fixed item count. If your data source can't support loading arbitrary requested page sizes (e.g. when network page size constraints are only known at runtime), either use PageKeyedDataSource or ItemKeyedDataSource, or pass the initial result with the two parameter LoadInitialCallback.onResult.

Room can generate a Factory of PositionalDataSources for you:

@Dao
interface UserDao {
@Query("SELECT * FROM user ORDER BY age DESC")
public abstract DataSource.Factory<Integer, User> loadUsersByAgeDesc();
}
Parameters
<T extends Object>

Type of items being loaded by the PositionalDataSource.
