Deleting Data

This is the manual for older MicroStream versions (Version < 5.0).

The new documentation (Version >= 5.0) is located at:

Deleting data does not require performing explicit deleting actions like DELETE FROM table WHERE... . Instead you just need to clear any references to the object in your object-graph and store those changes. If a stored object is not reachable anymore its data will be deleted from the storage later. This behavior is comparable to Java's garbage collector.


Deleted data is not erased immediately from the storage files

The erasing from the storage files is done by the housekeeping process.
