Subject [Jackrabbit Wiki] Update of "nt:hierarchyNode" by JukkaZitting
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2006 19:37:04 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Jackrabbit Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by JukkaZitting:
http://wiki.apache.org/jackrabbit/nt%3ahierarchyNode

New page:
Abstract base type for nodes in a structured node hierarchy.

== Definition ==

{{{
[nt:hierarchyNode]
- jcr:created (DATE) autocreated protected INITIALIZE
}}}

== Description ==

Together with ["nt:folder"] and other subtypes this node type implements the Composite design
pattern for storing structured node hierarchies. Node hierarchies based on ["nt:hierarchyNode"]
subtypes differ from hierarchies based on ["nt:unstructured"] in that each ["nt:hierarchyNode"]
node has a distinct character (e.g. branch or leaf node) and semantics whereas ["nt:unstructured"]
nodes have no specified interpretation

This node type is normally only used as a base for other node types, as there is usually little
point in creating a node whose only content is the creation date and other metadata specified
by possible mixin types.

== Related node types ==

 * ["nt:folder"] has ["nt:hierarchyNode"]s as child nodes
 * ["nt:hierarchyNode"] is the base type of ["nt:file"], ["nt:linkedFile"], and ["nt:folder"]
