How about implementing Criteria functionality that can be used for already populated Collections?


  • it makes use of already cached collections - they do not need re-fetch from database
  • one can further filter collections using powerful criteria API


  • very difficult to achieve database functionality (e.g collation) in PHP

Do you have a certain use-case in mind? In most cases the DB can do things a lot faster and more effiencent...

That is very time consuming and will not be really fast in plain php. We should better let highly optimized database do the filter part. They are good at it, way better then we'll ever be in php.
