There are three main methods for retrieving records in bulk:
- Method 1: the seek method - used when the records are not sorted by any particular criteria. (i.e., the records are sorted just by the Record ID).
- Method 2: the Cursor API method - used when the records are sorted, and more than 10,000 records are expected to be retrieved.
- Method 3: the offset method - used when the records are sorted, and fewer than 10,000 records are retrieved.
