Subject [jira] Commented: (COCOON-2108) xmodule:flow-attr Does not accept document objects
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2007 18:55:43 GMT


Csaba Kazó commented on COCOON-2108:

My evaluation in the above mentioned thread can be found here:

To sum up, I've found that the flow attribute module obtains the string value instead of the
original domain object when calling into JXPath; this call is in JXPathHelper.getAttribute,
line 96:

  Object obj = jxContext.getValue(name);

Here, a jxContext.getPointer(name).getNode() call would return the correct DOM object. I can
imagine that the solution to the bug is as simple as this, although my understanding of JXPath
is limited.

If you quickly need a workaround, you can easily create a small replacement input module subclassing
AbstractInputModule that simply gets the domain object without any JXPath traversal.
