Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-241) Remapping the default namespace
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2005 09:29:48 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-241?page=comments#action_12331479 ] 

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-241:

Hmm, you are right. However it should probably be possible to map some other namespace to
the empty prefix. As in:

    session.setNamespacePrefix("", "some-namespace");

For example to work with XML documents like:

    <document xmlns="some-namespace"/>

This however is not possible if you cannot remap the empty namespace in the first place.

> 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

> 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.
