Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-115) Nodetype is not preserved during export/import
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2005 10:45:27 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-115?page=comments#action_63771 ]
fabrizio giustina commented on JCR-115:

This is the definition of the custom nodetype (note the requiredType="undefined" in the propertydefinition):

<nodeType name="custom:contentNode" isMixin="false" hasOrderableChildNodes="true" primaryItemName="">
        <childNodeDefinition name="*" defaultPrimaryType="" autoCreated="false" 
            mandatory="false" onParentVersion="VERSION" protected="false" sameNameSiblings="true">
        <propertyDefinition name="*" requiredType="undefined" autoCreated="false" 
             mandatory="false" onParentVersion="COPY" protected="false" multiple="false"/>

I am using:
session.exportDocumentView("/", stream, false, false)
for export and
session.importXML("/", stream, ImportUUIDBehavior.IMPORT_UUID_COLLISION_REMOVE_EXISTING);
for import.

Steps to reproduce the error: 
- add a node of type custom:contentNode to the repository with a Boolean property (getType()
returns PropertyType.BOOLEAN)
- export the content of the repository in document view and reimport the xml using the methods
- getType() doesn't return PropertyType.BOOLEAN anymore

Is this enough in order to let you reproduce the error? Let me know if you need any other

> Property defined with a UNDEFINED property type are not handled correctly during export:
the "real" property type assigned on creation is not preserved.
> If you try to export a Boolean property (which is set as UNDEFINED in configuration)
and reimport it the value returned by getType() will change.

> Returns the type of this Property. The type returned

> for some property p, the type returned by
> p.getType() may differ from the type returned by
> p.getDefinition.getRequiredType() only in the
