i was wondering the following:
imagine i have a database with > 10.000.000 records.

in a gui i have a select statement to get around 1.000.000 records. doing a simple select * script that retrieves everything in once would increatse network too much.

how is this problem mostly tackled ? at DB Level or at the level of the GUI ?

Why are you sending a million records to a GUI in the first place? Would you page through a million records? I wouldn't, not anywhere even remotely close.

Do you know about paginating through a result set, and the FIRST_ROWS hint?
