Subject Thoughts about Jackrabbit 1.0 (and 1.1)
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2005 13:43:50 GMT

The 1.0 roadmap in Jira contains a number of enhancement and feature
requests that don't seem to be very pressing. In the spirit of "release
early, release often" I'm thinking about tagging these issues for a
later 1.1 release:

  JCR-202 Add configuration options for search manager
  JCR-247 Child axis support for XPath predicates
  JCR-246 Child node support for jcr:contains()
  JCR-153 Improved JAAS access control
  JCR-215 Code is depends on Log4J directly instead of commons-logging
  JCR-204 Improve recoverability
  JCR-241 Remapping the default namespace
  JCR-248 create configuration on InputStream

This of course wouldn't prohibit anyone from resolving these issues
already now, but would not keep them as show-stoppers for the 1.0
release. The remaining issues (until more are submitted) for 1.0 would
then be:

  JCR-226 Lock.refresh(): throws if lock is alive
  JCR-224 Lock: Session.addLockToken(String) does make the session to a
lock holder
  JCR-50  Persistence data of versioning not cleaned up correctly
  JCR-43  Restore on node creates same-name-sibling of OPV-Version child
  JCR-141 Versioning does not make use of tx
  JCR-140 Versioning might no be thread safe
  JCR-18  Multithreading issue with versioning
  JCR-154 Documentation - jackrabbit features beyond the spec
  JCR-151 Installation guide
  JCR-225 LockInfo.logginOut(SessionImpl): javadoc does not correspond
to executed code
  JCR-156 Review test cases and cross check with 1.0 specification
  JCR-134 Unreferenced VersionHistory should be deleted automatically.
  JCR-230 persistent locks persist even after removing the locked node
  JCR-257 Use separate index for jcr:system tree

It seems like locking and versioning issues are the most critical ones
remaining. Is there anything I or someone else could do to help with
some of these issues?

Another remaining area is documentation. Yesterday I committed a first
version of an installation guide. I haven't yet decided the best way to
relate the deployment howtos and the first steps document to the
installation guide. In fact I've been thinking about perhaps rearranging
the current end-user documentation into a more coherent "Jackrabbit
Manual" set of xdocs. Also the initial FAQ document I did earlier could
use some refining. This list has recently seen a load of good questions
and answers that should be distilled into FAQ entries. All help is
