Subject [jira] [Created] (CMIS-968) Broswer binding failed to check the property list for secondary type when update/create properties for secondary type

Xian Zou created CMIS-968:

             Summary: Broswer binding failed to check the property list for secondary type
when update/create properties for secondary type 
                 Key: CMIS-968
             Project: Chemistry
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: opencmis-server
    Affects Versions: OpenCMIS 0.13.0
         Environment: Windows2008R2 
            Reporter: Xian Zou

I am developing retention management in CMIS1.1 which cmis:secondaryObjectTypeIds is cmis:rm_destructionRetention.
After complete the server code for CM repository, I tried to develop a JUNIT case to create/update
a document with the cmis:rm_expirationDate and cmis:rm_destructionDate property. All create/update
operations works as design for atompub binding, but failed in browser binding with the following
org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.commons.exceptions.CmisInvalidArgumentException: cmis:rm_expirationDate
is unknown!
	at org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.client.bindings.spi.browser.AbstractBrowserBindingService.convertStatusCode(
	at org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.client.bindings.spi.browser.ObjectServiceImpl.updateProperties(
	at org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.client.runtime.AbstractCmisObject.updateProperties(
	at org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.client.runtime.AbstractCmisObject.updateProperties(

Here is my sample code for the update logic as the example.
Map<String, Object> updateProperties = new HashMap<String, Object>();
            String newName = "updatedname" + TestUtils.getRandomInt(10000);
            updateProperties.put("cmis:name", newName);
            updateProperties.put("clbNonGroup.CMISString", newName);
            Calendar c = getTestCalendar(2);
            Calendar c2 = getTestCalendar(3);
            updateProperties.put(PropertyIds.SECONDARY_OBJECT_TYPE_IDS, secondObjTypeIds);
            updateProperties.put(PropertyIds.EXPIRATION_DATE, c);
            updateProperties.put(PropertyIds.DESTRUCTION_DATE, c2);
            Document updatedDoc = TestUtils.updateDocument(session, doc.getId(), updateProperties);

I checked the chemistry code and found the following logic may cause the "cmis:rm_expirationDate
is unknown!" error" in createNewProperties and createUpdateProperties methods in
 PropertiesImpl result = new PropertiesImpl();
        for (Map.Entry<String, List<String>> property : properties.entrySet())
            PropertyDefinition<?> propDef = typeCache.getPropertyDefinition(property.getKey());
            if (propDef == null && objectIds != null) {
                for (String objectId : objectIds) {
                    propDef = typeCache.getPropertyDefinition(property.getKey());
                    if (propDef != null) {
            if (propDef == null) {
                throw new CmisInvalidArgumentException(property.getKey() + " is unknown!");

            result.addProperty(createPropertyData(propDef, property.getValue()));

Actually, when we create/update an document, the type definition in the code above will be
gotten from the primary object type. The properties for secondary object types will not be
gotten in the type definitions , so I think it should be a bug for browser binding. Here are
some possible solutions for the issue.
Possible solution 1: Don't check the properties and throw the CmisInvalidArgumentException(property.getKey()
+ " is unknown!"); exception for browser binding like other bindings.
Possible solution 2: Check the properties in type definitions in both primary object type
and all possible/passed secondary types. If we find the property in either of them. We will
not throw the exception.

If I develop the code in wrong way, please tell me how to write it correctly.
