wiki:IterableStore

Term: IterableStore

A Store which provides means to iterate through the elements in the Store, determine the size of the Store etc.

The distinction between Store and IterableStore is made because some very large, distributed data stores have no good way to iterate through all of the elements. InfoGrid still allows those Stores to be used in those places where iteration is not required, e.g. as Store for a typical MeshBase.
