Facebook often times out when uisng datastore

Jun 11, 2008 at 10:42 AM
I find that Facebook often times out when I am using the datastore, especially when iterating through even a small collection of objects that I need to get associated properties for.   

Are there any solutions? Any tips as to which datastore api calls are most / least efficient time-wise?

Hi John,

I hacked my version of the Facebook Developer Toolkit around so it does a "three tries and you're out" exception handling on all the REST web service calls. I've also implemented a rudimentary batch api wrapper. Unfortunately, it's not production ready - when it is I'll pop it up on here.

Cheers,
