    DataTable external sorting for large tables?


      Is there a way to delegate the actual sorting to the outside code, rather than it always being sorted by RichFaces? While it might be ok for small result sets, I highly doubt that r:column will be able to sort 1 mil. of records, without bringing down the server :( In this case, I'd rather delegate the sorting to the query that backs the dataTable, only using the RF for the UI part, but it seems that there's no way to accomplish this in 3.2.0 - the same piece of code that triggers the sort UI rendering (either a sortBy or a comparator attribute) also is the one that triggers the RF-internal sorting. Would be great to have a way to use one without the other.
