SQL Update type Activity in Mendix


Hello Everyone , 


I think it will be a good idea to have an activity where you can update the whole list of object without looping it . 

We find this useful when Update certain flag of the master data set with large data set .

We can have a ‘Update’ Activity where you can specify the XPath and set the attributes of the objects . In that way we dont have to load all the objects in the memory , Loop and then update the value .

Yeah can even see change object becoming even better by having it able to select lists as well.

Similar to the commit object action.

So we dont have to do the retrieve, loop, change, commit list pattern anymore which is just a waste of time.


Your solution would be great where we could pass in an xpath / data source instead!
