Subject Which version should session.getObject(id) return?
Date Wed, 23 May 2012 10:15:09 GMT
Hi all,

We use CMIS to connect to an Alfresco repository and are upgrading from
Alfresco 3.4.2 to Alfresco 4.0.1, which should be compliant to the CMIS
spec. Alfresco 3.4.2 wasn't entirely compliant, so we are running into some

I have a document with 2 versions: version 1.0 and version 2.0. When
executing the following query we get the latest version (2.0) as a result:

session.query("SELECT * FROM park:document WHERE cmis:objectId =
> ", false);

Adding the version specifier suffix ";2.0" to the object id in the query
works as well. This didn't work with Alfresco 3.4.2, so I assume that this
is compliant as well?

When executing the getObject(id) method with the same id (without version
specifier), return the first version (1.0) as a result:

> session.getObject("
> workspace://SpacesStore/77f9e52f-6acf-47bd-83f1-f654c59e7b75")

We expected the latest version as a result. When adding the version
specifier suffix ";2.0" to the object id, we are able to retrieve the
latest version. Is this compliant behavior?
I looked into the CMIS specification, but I could not find any reference to
which version should be returned when not specifying a version. If this is
compliant behavior, is there another way to
easily retrieve the latest version of a document without using a CMIS query?

Thanks in advance.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
Kind regards,
Bien à vous,
