Way back in the hazy origins of our platform it was decided that we were going to need some hierarchical data structures stored in the RDBMS. The relationships between nodes were stored via a ‘parent_id’ column that referenced another row in the same table. Although at face value this may seem slightly sensible, the reality has turned out very differently.
I have now been tasked with implementing some functionality that requires traversing the hierarchy – Specifically, I need to build a list of all of the descendents of a node for a given node. This would be trivial if the relationships were stored as ‘parent -> children’ but as the relationships are stored as ‘child -> (unique) parent’ I can’t figure out a performant way of doing this (the naive approach is O(n^2) I believe).
Having wrestled with this for a few hours, the current thinking is that we should refactor the database but if anyone has experienced this before it’d be good to hear about your solution. If not, let this be a warning to anyone trying to save a tree in this fashion if you ever plan on having to traverse it!
