Subject "null" values for multi-value properties and CMIS specs
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:35:07 GMT
Hi Everyone,

A have a general question regarding CMIS specs. CMIS 1.1 says:

A property, either single-valued or multi-valued, MAY be in a "not set" state. CMIS does not
support "null" property value. If a multi-valued property is not in a "not set" state, its
property value MUST be a non-empty list of individual values. Each individual value in the
list MUST NOT be in a "not set" state and MUST conform to the property's property-type.
A multi-valued property is either set or not set in its entirety. An individual value of a
multi-valued property MUST NOT be in an individual "value not set" state and hold a position
in the list of values. An empty list of values MUST NOT be allowed.

Does anybody know what is the reason behind not allowing individual values to be in "value
not set" state for multi-valued property? Is there any way to work around that limitation
(beside "reserved" values or extensions)?
