Subject [jira] [Commented] (ODFTOOLKIT-50) [gsoc2012] Add ODF 1.2 RDF metadata support to ODF Toolkit
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2012 11:03:09 GMT


Svante Schubert commented on ODFTOOLKIT-50:

Hi Tao,

just some short feed-back, first of all I like the progress you are making!
Still in some kind of rush, therefore I was not able to look into the problems myself and
work out a solutions.

1) When I applied your patch, the ODFDOM test passed (in Netbeans, W7, JDK7). When I rebuild
the complete project, there are several ODFDOM tests not working, as in LoadSaveTest the URL
prefix file:/ and file:/// differ.
2) Just from a high level thoughts Object layout/naming. 
a) I verified that even the Apache Incubator Jena project still uses the HP Java Package names:
b) The name JenaSink makes sense, as parameter are dependent to Jena. Do you think it is easy
to provide a mechanism (e.g. Factory) to allow users to use different Metadata engines aside
c) Please double check if all classes are needed in a public interface or are able to be taken
from public view by moving to package level (removing identifier), esp. the naming of "URIExtractor10"
might be improved. 
e) The org.odftoolkit.odfdom.rdfa package belongs into the org.odftoolkit.odfdom.pkg.rdfa
for all those parts specified in the lowest package layer - see
or it belongs into the org.odftoolkit.odfdom.dom.rdfa for all those parts specified in the
ODF XML specific layer - see

Do you believe you are able to split this?

Finally, to see your latest changes, I usually do a patch compare by cloning the ODF Toolkit
project twice to my hard disk and applying the latest and the one before at each of them.
After copying the files from the latest on the other rep your latest changes become visible.
This gets annoying especially, I usually find time to review your work, when I am travelling
and SVN takes quite some traffic. Would you mind to provide the patch to JIRA issue (legal
and SVN users) and push your changes to some github? If there is a problem, I am willing to
push your latest work to github..

Thanks and keep up the good work!

> This is one of the greatest features for ODF 1.2 to allow the usage of RDF metadata on
the document and the most important elements. 
> As a co-editor of this spec, I got a special interest in making this feature come alive.
In addition it has a positive side affect to the new OOo API, when scenarios are not even
tested in the office, but as well from a different ODF library.
> Before creating a convenient API, the basic package feature has to be supported.
> Still I believe the usage of an RDF parser is still optional to keep ODFDOM small and
give the user only what he really wants.
