Subject [jira] Resolved: (JXPATH-92) Allow to use NodePointers as variable values and preserve tree position information
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2007 21:52:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JXPATH-92?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Matt Benson resolved JXPATH-92.
-------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Sergey, I have spent a lot of time going over this.  In theory I wouldn't have a problem with
supporting pointers as variable values, BUT I do think that transparently converting these
to the pointers in question is a matter of opinion as to whether such behavior would be expected,
so my decision is that that behavior, and the subsequent "proper sorting" you are after, will
NOT be implemented.  This being the case I can't see much purpose in allowing pointers as
variable values after all; my advice here is to explore dynamically building your XPath expressions
to always use the proper path to an object.

as part of original tree to sort and comapre nodes.
