Subject [jira] Commented: (COCOON-1906) [PATCH] simple-xml binding does not work with non file sources
Date Tue, 26 Sep 2006 15:49:51 GMT
    [ ] 
Lars Trieloff commented on COCOON-1906:

Jean Baptiste,

the main problem is that there is no casting in Javascript and for any class that implements
both XMLlizable and Source, the Rhino interpreter cannot decide because the distance is equal.
So I see following solutions:

- adding a method for every xmllizable source (the approach of my patch)
- making xmlizable extend source (impossible, as it is in excalibur)
- adding an interface xmlizablesource and changing every cocoon source that implements xmlizable
- adding methods with different names sourceToSAX() and xmlizableToSAX() (this is not the
best Java style, but would be the choice for Javascript development)

As the goal is to make it easier to use this class from Javascript, I would prefer the last
option. It does not break the api, requires no changes to existing code and is easy to implement?

What do you think?

> The cocoon forms flowscript API comes with a helper method form.loadXML, that retrieves
data from an xml document. The current implementation however does not work with documents
that are referenced not as files, but as SitemapSources, e.g. via the cocoon:/ or xmldb://
pseudo-protocol. In this case the Rhino engine is unable to resolve the ambiguity between
two method signatures:
> org.mozilla.javascript.EvaluatorException: "resource://org/apache/cocoon/forms/flow/javascript/Form.js",
line 287: The choice of Java constructor toSAX matching JavaScript argument types (org.apache.cocoon.components.source.impl.SitemapSource,org.apache.cocoon.forms.util.XMLAdapter)
is ambiguous; candidate constructors are:
> void toSAX(org.apache.excalibur.xml.sax.XMLizable,org.xml.sax.ContentHandler)
> void toSAX(org.apache.excalibur.source.Source,org.xml.sax.ContentHandler)
