Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-14) {XML|Object}PersistenceManager.destroy(*) may fail
Date Wed, 27 Oct 2004 16:45:32 GMT
{XML|Object}PersistenceManager.destroy(*) may fail

         Key: JCR-14
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-14
     Project: Jackrabbit
        Type: Bug
 Environment: Jackrabbit SVN rev. 55714
    Reporter: Felix Meschberger

The destroy methods of the ObjectPersistenceManager class try to delete their files without
checking for their existence. This may result in a FileSystemException being thrown because
according to the specification of FileSystem.deleteFile() a FileSystemException is thrown
"if this path does not denote a file or if another error occurs."

While the Jackrabbit LocalFileSystem implementation silently ignores a request to delete a
non-existing file, our internal implementation of the interface throws a FileSystemException
in this case, which cause destroy to fail.

I suggest all destroy methods should be extended to first check for the existence of the file
to prevent from being thrown.

Note: This not only applies to ObjectPersistenceManager but also to XMLPersistenceManager.
