Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-276) SimpleWebdavServlet: avoid 404 for the root collection
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2005 08:55:31 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-276?page=comments#action_12358894 ] 

angela commented on JCR-276:

discussion of variants:

1) redirection to the default-workspace

when accessing the not-existing root collection  -> login with 'null' workspace
and redirect to resource representing the repository root-node, thus 
including the workspace name obtained from the session.

-> my favorite solution. but windows builtin dav client does not respect
     redirects. therefore dropped.

2) build a fake-root resource

resource with no representation in the repository. none of the write or
lock methods would be allowed. it would only serve as collection for
all the available workspaces.

-> separate resource implementation needed (see also jcr package)
-> need to make sure, that the new Repository-login is issued when the
    user accesses any of the workspace resources (and its members)
-> perhaps confusing if the root does not allow any write operation?

would be an option but i'm not sure, whether its really favorable....

3) don't allow connection without valid resource-locator

perform Repository.login with 'null' workspace in case the locator obtained from
the dav-request does not provide workspace information (e.g. when
using the simple-resourcelocator) of if the workspace is "".
validation check however is delegated to the resource implementation
itself -> thus throwing 404 if the locator is null or does not provide a

when using webdav/jcr/DavLocatorFactoryImpl accessing the 'root-collection'
(thus connecting without valid workspace name) is not possible.
switching back to the factory implementation in webdav/simple allows
connection without workspace name.

> in order to avoid strange 404 error when accessing the root collection in simple webdav
servlet (thus missing workspace name), that request should either be redirected or handled
by a create fake root that has no correspondance in the jsr170 repository.
