> Being able to read .SHX (shapefile index) that often accompany a shapefile is useful
for two reasons :
> 1) Currently when the JDBC driver runs an SQL request with a condition it go through
the Shapefile and the DBase III file sequentially, from the start to the end. It costs a lot.
> Reading the shapefile index open a way to :
> - first read DBase III content for matching records,
> - then do direct access to the shapefile features and return them.
> 2) If a shapefile is provided with a .SHX file and that we become able to INSERT or DELETE
records on it, we are expected to update this index file.
