Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-241) Remapping the default namespace
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2005 12:22:48 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-241?page=comments#action_12331585 ] 

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-241:
-----------------------------------

Actually I think that the use case of mapping the empty prefix to some normal namespace is
much more interesting than assigning a prefix to the empty namespace. However you cannot do
the former without the latter (first remap the empty namespace, then map another namespace
to the now free empty prefix), thus the wording of the issue.

> I'm not sure if this is a bug, feature or standard behaviour, but currently it is not
possible to remap the default namespace to some other prefix. The following code throws a
NamespaceException:
>     session.setNamespacePrefix("foo", "");
> At least the Session.setNamespacePrefix() javadoc doesn't seem to prohibit changing the
prefix of the default namespace and I couldn't find anything more specific in the JCR specification
document. Restrictions are only placed on remapping the xml namespace.
> Note that the current nodetype code is actually relying on the default namespace being
mapped to the empty prefix, so changing this would require small changes there as well.
> I haven't really run into any cases where I'd have needed such functionality, but it
would be nice to clarify this issue.
