Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-454) Export tool
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2008 22:38:44 GMT


Florian Holeczek commented on JSPWIKI-454:

That's right, but for the user it's not as easy as e.g. with relational databases yet (At
least not until this summer, when I've been working with Jackrabbit). We'll save much time
with implementing such a feature - because it will avoid many, many questions on the mailing
list :-)

>             Project: JSPWiki
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Core & storage
>            Reporter: Janne Jalkanen
>             Fix For: 2.8.2
> In order to facilitate the move to a different backend in 3.0, and also allowing people
the choice of the 3.0 backend provider, we should have an export tool which can export the
old format repository to the JCR XML export format (System View).  This will also be useful
in 3.0 for people who want to have an implementation-independent database dump.
> A couple of requirements:
> * Must run with existing 2.8.x
> * Must have an export functionality in the Admin UI
> * Should have also a simple GUI
> * Should have also a command-line interface
> * Should also export version histories (though there is no standard representation defined
in JCR, we may have to invent our own.)
> * May have built-in compression (the XML files are bound to be large)
> (For 3.0 it then obviously becomes: add a tool which allows *importing* of such XML document.)
