Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-186) simple webdav server allows PROPPATCH of protected properties
Date Fri, 12 Aug 2005 17:36:55 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-186?page=comments#action_12318664 ] 

Brian Moseley commented on JCR-186:

fair enough, whatever works :)

jcr properties which are defined to be protected are easy to handle - or at least they are
if you can tell that saving fails for that reason.

server-generated dav properties that don't have corresponding jcr properties are a harder
problem. as an example, my server automatically attaches a protected "CALDAV:calendar-restrictions"
dav property to certain collections. it's a static property whose value is determined by constants
defined elsewhere in the server. with the current implementation, a dav client could PROPPATCH
that property directly into the repository, because the node type representing the resource
being PROPPATCHed allows arbitrary properties to be set (to represent dead dav properties).
because there's not actually a property def for this property in the repository, saving the
node won't throw a "protected property" exception, so we need to have some way in the dav
layer to realize that the dav property is protected and not allow a corresponding jcr property
to be set in the first place.

i hope that made sense :)

> DavResourceImpl.alterProperties, setProperty and removeProperty should check if a dav
property is protected before setting or removing it. attempting to change a protected property
should result (i believe) in a 409 Conflict response for that particular property.
> solving this will likely require getting the DavProperty instance corresponding to each
property included in the request. DavResourceImpl will need a way to obtain instances defined
by jcr-server extensions (eg the CALDAV:calendar-description property).
