Subject [jira] [Commented] (CMIS-430) Server-Binding - Children.DeleteTree does not work with Rest-Atom
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 16:55:09 GMT


Florian Müller commented on CMIS-430:

Have you changed the repository info to report that getDescendants and getFolderTree are now
supported? The server framework checks the repository info if it has to generate the descendants
and folder tree links.

>From the client perspective it looks like this:

The folder Atom entry should have two "down" links if getDescendants is supported. One link
has the type "application/atom+xml"; the other one has the type "application/cmistree+xml".
The second link is the descendants link and the CMIS specification defines that only this
link supports deleteTree. 

OpenCMIS falls back to first link if the second link is not present. That's not 100% spec
conform but necessary to support incompliant CMIS servers. That's why you are seeing DELETE
calls on the children feed.

The first link point to the folder children feed. The spec defines that this feed should support
GET and POST but not DELETE. And that's what your suggestion does. It adds support for DELETE
to the folder children feed. It's technically possible, but does not concur with the CMIS

> We have developed a CMIS server using OpenCMIS-Server (Maven overlay). 
> When testing the service using CMIS workbench 0.4.0 while connected with AtomPub, The
operation DeleteTree on a folder returns 405-Method not allowed.
> Workbench issue a http request like this DELETE /cmissvr/atom/racineMcccf/children?id=xxx
> Execution of the TCK results in the same error.
> There is no error while connected with WebService's bindings
> Adding this line in CmisAtomPubServlet.init resolve the issue:
> dispatcher.addResource(AtomPubUtils.RESOURCE_CHILDREN, Dispatcher.METHOD_DELETE, ObjectService.class,
> Note: We have not implemented the "Descendants" capabilities, maybe this is the reason
that Descendants/DELETE (ObjectService.deleteTree) is not invoked
