Subject [jira] Created: (JCR-318) RepositoryHelper.unregisterRepository() does not allow the repository to be automatically restarted.
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2006 10:54:09 GMT
RepositoryHelper.unregisterRepository() does not allow the repository to be automatically restarted.

         Key: JCR-318
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-318
     Project: Jackrabbit
        Type: Bug
  Components: core  
    Versions: 0.9    
 Environment: Tomcat 5.5.x, JNDI
    Reporter: Mark Slater
    Priority: Minor

Using JNDI to create a model 1 (embedded) repository as suggested in the documentation (http://incubator.apache.org/jackrabbit/doc/deploy/howto-model1.html)
returns a BindableRepository instance to the web app. The same documentation page strongly
recommends the webapp calls RepositoryImpl.shutdown() in the servlet's destroy() method. However,
since BindableRepository is restricted to its package, there is no way for the webapp to access
the RepositoryImpl. The RepositoryHelper class provides a unregisterRepository() method which
can perform the shutdown. Unfortunately, the method does not allow the repository to be restarted
later on, forcing a full restart of Tomcat. The exception thrown when trying to access a repository
shut down in this manner in a re-deployed webapp is:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: repository instance has been shut down

It may be useful to merge the transient capabilities of TransientRepository into BindableRepository,
perhaps making it a factory configuration option. I imagine there's a performance hit to opening
a repository, in a shared deployment environment, where the lifecycle is controlled by the
application server, it would probably be best to not have the repository be transient.
