Subject [jira] [Created] (VFS-371) Add FileObject API deleteAllDescendents()
Date Thu, 27 Oct 2011 06:34:32 GMT
Add FileObject API deleteAllDescendents()

                 Key: VFS-371
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: New Feature
         Environment: Apache Maven 3.0.3 (r1075438; 2011-02-28 12:31:09-0500)
Maven home: C:\Java\apache-maven-3.0.3\bin\..
Java version: 1.6.0_29, vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
Java home: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1252
OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"
            Reporter: Gary D. Gregory
             Fix For: 2.1

I see a lot of call sites within VFS 2 and some in my work server that do:


It therefore seems like a sensible refactoring.

Add to {{FileObject}}:

     * Deletes all descendents of this file.  
     * Does nothing if this file does not exist.
     * Shorthand for {@code delete(Selectors.Selectors.SELECT_ALL)}
     * <p/>
     * <p>This method is not transactional.  If it fails and throws an
     * exception, this file will potentially only be partially deleted.
     * @return the number of deleted objects
     * @throws FileSystemException If this file or one of its descendents is read-only, or
on error
     *                             deleting this file or one of its descendents.
    int deleteAllDescendents() throws FileSystemException;

And to {{AbstractFileObject}}:

     * Deletes this file, and all children.
     * @return the number of deleted files.
     * @throws FileSystemException if an error occurs.
    public int deleteAllDescendents() throws FileSystemException
        return this.delete(Selectors.SELECT_ALL);
