Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-666) Related to UTF-8 file naming notations
Date Wed, 20 Oct 2010 20:54:25 GMT


Murray Altheim commented on JSPWIKI-666:

Hi Harry,

While I realise that there are some significant issues with this, I believe the only real,
solution for this type of problem is to stop tying the page name to the file or record storage.
essence, what we're currently doing is using what is a metadata name as a record identifier.
As this JIRA issue suggests, there are too many internationalisation and record management

issues with the current approach. 

Breaking the connection between name and identifier would free up JSPWiki to provide 
multi-lingual page names, contextualised naming, etc. and the backends would be able to 
guarantee unique page identifiers and would be free to use these as persistent identifiers

(permalinks) for pages. In the JSPWiki system I'd developed (i.e., the Topic Map based
"Assertion Framework") it used wiki pages as terms in user-created ontology, where a page
name change would potentially break an assertion. That kind of stability is important.

I understand this could only be applied in the 3.0 code, but I heavily encourage the project
to make that break (if that decision hasn't already been made) at that time. I agree that
not possible with the 2.8.x code.

> When i create pages with chinese titles for example: Page title is '維基中文測試'
it stores the wiki page as '%E7%B6%AD%E5%9F%BA%E4%B8%AD%E6%96%87%E6%B8%AC%E8%A9%A6.txt'
> Due to this we are facing problem:
> 1. To indentify the pages in back-end
> 2. file names become too lengthy
> 3. Zipping the folder with lengtheir names giving error
> Could someone suggest is there some alternative way to store specifically chinese related
page titles and whether we store the file name same as ''維基中文測試.txt '
> We need solution for this little urgent. Thanks in advance.
