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)?


Regards,

Vyacheslav Pascarel
