Subject [jira] [Commented] (CMIS-518) Interoperability issues with deserialization of attributes in Extension Elements
Date Sun, 01 Apr 2012 12:44:27 GMT


Florian Müller commented on CMIS-518:

Unfortunately, your workaround doesn't work. getLocalName() always returns null with a non-namespace
aware parser. We need something more sophisticated.

> We came across this issue in . This
is affecting Alfresco OpenCMIS Extensions.
> It would seem that the presence or absence of xalan.jar on the sending side can affect
the receiver's ability to lookup attributes on an extension element.

> I think the problem lies in the way that OpenCMIS deserializes extension elements. It
strips the namespace from all attributes, loading their local name into a single map. That
means xmlns:propertyDefinitionId and propertyDefinitionId:propertyDefinitionId may be considered
to be the same attribute so one can overwrite the other.
> The attached patch to org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.commons.impl.Converter.convertDomToCmisExtensionElement()
fixed the issue for us, making it only pay attention to attributes in the element's namespace.
