Based on the javadoc:
an iterator that permits an ordered traversal of the descendant key/value pairs.
Would it be possible please to provide an example of what you mean by "ordered traversal"? Based on what criteria is the order performed? Is it alphabetically, based on the order the records where inserted or something else? Also, in the example that you will provide, can you also clarify how the Direction parameter alters the result set?
Thank you very much,
Please see page 24 and 25 of the NoSQL Database Getting started guide (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/NOSQL/html/GettingStartedGuide/Oracle-NoSQLDB-GSG.pdf) for an example.
Thank you for your answer Ashok.
Based on the code snippets of the Getting Started Guide I wrote some more elaborative examples just for demonstration. Apparently the order of the traversal is based on the alphabetical order of the full key strings (major and minor path components). I wrote a small blog post about it here: http://www.giannakidis.info/post/54370539362/experimenting-with-kvstore-multigetiterator
I thought your blog was great.
So, I did an outtake on the topic in the Oracle NoSQL blog and linked back.

Hope this can help.
Thanks and warm regards.
