Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-242) registration of new namespace does not respect existing session mappings
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2005 08:53:48 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-242?page=comments#action_12331473 ] 

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-242:
-----------------------------------

I remember wondering about this same issue in another project some while ago. The JCR spec
doesn't seem to indicate what should happen in such a case.

The problem isn't localized to a single session, as the namespace registrations are global
and could thus mess with any number of active sessions that suddenly  receive a new namespace
mapping in the underlying namespace registry. Thus I think the registration should not fail
as the client code would have no way of anticipating such failures.

+1 to automatically remapping the new namespace for sessions that have already mapped some
other namespace to the same prefix.

> consider the following (starting with a default namespace registry):
> // remap nt namespace
> Session.setNamespacePrefix("foobar", "http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0");
> // create new namespace
> NamespaceRegistry.registerNamespace("foobar", "http://www.foo.org/bar/1.0");
> now the session used above that remapped the nt namespace has an ambigous namespace mapping:
> foobar --> "http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0"
> "http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0" --> foobar
> "http://www.foo.org/bar/1.0" --> foobar
> i.e. the new foobar namespace is hidden for this session. either the registration should
not work, or an automatic prefix is to be defined in all local session mappings.
