Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-241) Remapping the default namespace
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2005 16:40:47 GMT
Remapping the default namespace

         Key: JCR-241
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-241
     Project: Jackrabbit
        Type: Wish
    Reporter: Jukka Zitting
    Priority: Minor
     Fix For: 1.0

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.
