> Webdav: Review usage of command chains
> --------------------------------------
>          Key: JCR-249
>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-249

> i'd like to review the usage of command chains for import/export within the simple webdav
> while the concept of command chains offers a lot of flexibility, it showed that the implementation
generates some drawbacks. a new mechanism should take advantage of the experiences made with
the command chains.
> from my point of view the following issues should be taken into consideration:
> - provide means to extend and modify the import/export logic with minimal effort
> - consistent import/export functionality for both collections and non-collections
>   > export/import should not be completely separated.
>   > interfaces should encourage consistency
>   > increase maintainability, reduce no of errors
> - distinction of collections and non-collections for import/export behaviour
>   > PUT must result in non-coll, MKCOL in collection
> - allow to defined a set of import/export-handlers with a given order.
> - the different handlers must not rely on each other.
> - an import/export should be completed after the first handler indicates success. there

>   should not be other classes involved in order to complete the import/export.
> - avoid huge configuration files and if possible, avoid program flow being defined outside
of java code.
> - avoid duplicate configuration (e.g. resource-filtering), duplicate code, duplicate
logic, that is 
>   hard to maintain.
> - additonal logic should be defined within a given import/export handler.
>   however, in case of webdav i see limited value of using extra logic such as addMixin
or checkin, 
>   that are covered by  webdav methods (such as LOCK, VERSION-CONTROL or CHECKIN).
