NXQL

SELECT * FROM Document

SQL (PostgreSQL dialect)

-- 1/ Get the result list (only ids)
SELECT _C1 FROM (
  SELECT hierarchy.id AS _C1
  FROM hierarchy
  WHERE ((hierarchy.primarytype IN ($1, ... $58)))
UNION ALL
  SELECT _H.id AS _C1 FROM hierarchy _H
  JOIN proxies ON _H.id = proxies.id
  JOIN hierarchy ON proxies.targetid = hierarchy.id
  WHERE ((hierarchy.primarytype IN ($59, ... $116)))) AS _T
LIMIT 201 OFFSET 0

-- 2/ load hierarchy fragment for the 12 documents
SELECT id, parentid, pos, name, isproperty, primarytype, ...
FROM hierarchy
WHERE id IN ($1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, $10, $11, $12)

-- 3/ load prefetch dublincore fragment
SELECT id, creator, source,nature, created, description, ...
FROM dublincore
WHERE id IN ($1, $2,$3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, $10, $11, $12)

-- 4/ load dublincore multi valued contributors fields
SELECT id, item FROM dc_contributors
WHERE id IN ($1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, $10, $11, $12)
ORDER BY id, pos

-- 5/ load other fragments dc_subject, misc

-- 6/ load ACL
SELECT id, name, grant, permission, user,group
FROM acls
WHERE id IN ($1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9,$10, $11, $12)
ORDER BY id, pos

The main request use a "UNION ALL" to include proxies in the results. If you don't need the proxies you can add a "AND [ecm:isProxy](http://ecmisProxy) = 0" clause to reduce the size of the query.

Note that requests to load fragments (steps 2 to 6) are not needed if the rows are already in the cache.

Note that only prefetched properties are loaded. If you need to access a property that is not prefetched for all your documents, you will have an extra database access for each documents (lazy loading).

There is LIMIT because Page Provider for navigation use paging by default. If you have more than 200 documents in a folder you will not see the total size of results. See https://jira.nuxeo.com/browse/NXP-9494 for more information.
