Subject [jira] Kommentiert: (JCR-309) Extract the public API interfaces from o.a.j.core to o.a.j.api
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2006 09:47:33 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-309?page=comments#action_12364547 ] 

Felix Meschberger commented on JCR-309:

While I tend to agree with Tobias that it would probably be better to have the item definition
classes available for the casual use, it would probably also be usefull to be able to just
register node types from pre-canned xml files.

Imagine a repository application which requires a set of node types. The definitions would
be distributed in the form of XML - or better yet the new CND - format and could just be registered
by handing a stream to the respective file.

IMHO, the InputStream solution is not the best of all solutions, but it is still far better
than nothing.

>     Reporter: Jukka Zitting
>      Fix For: 1.0
>  Attachments: jackrabbit-api.patch
> To better document and track the public JCR extensions and component API provided by
Jackrabbit and to allow more room for refactoring within the Jackrabbit core, we shoud move
(or create) the supported API interfaces to a new org.apache.jackrabbit.api package.
> At least the following interfaces should be moved along with any supporting implementation-independent
>     * PersistenceManager
>     * FileSystem
>     * AccessManager
>     * QueryHandler
>     * TextFilter
> Possible dependencies to implementation-specific classes should preferably be abstracted
using extra interfaces.
> Also the workspace and node type administration methods should be published as Jackrabbit-specific
extensions to the JCR API interfaces.
