Subject [jira] [Commented] (CMIS-430) Server-Binding - Children.DeleteTree does not work with Rest-Atom
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 20:23:08 GMT


Florian Müller commented on CMIS-430:

You have to support getDescendants() or getFolderTree() to make deleteTree() work. At least
one of the relation links have to be present. Otherwise the client cannot call DELETE.

Your solution proposal does not concur with the CMIS specification.

There is, however, a workaround. Override AbstractCmisService.getObjectInfoIntern() with your
own implementation. (That's a good idea anyway since you can make all kinds of performance
improvements there.) Make sure that you call ObjectInfo.setSupportsDescendants(true) for all
folders. That generates the relation link for deleteTree(). getDescendants() can still throw
a CmisNotSupportedException.

>    Affects Versions: OpenCMIS 0.4.0, OpenCMIS 0.5.0
>         Environment: Windows XP, JDK 1.6, Tomcat 6
>            Reporter: Jonathan Lapointe

>         Attachments:
>   Original Estimate: 24h
>  Remaining Estimate: 24h
> 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
