Subject query feature extensions
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2006 07:13:00 GMT
Jackrabbit currently supports a limited set of XPath features, basically 
the mandatory feature set as specified by jsr-170 plus some extended 
capability where predicates can stated.

I would like to invite everyone (or at least whoever is interested...) 
to put together a list of 3 query features that are missing the most in 
jsr-170/jackrabbit regarding XPath support. Of course you may post a 
longer list but I'm primarily interested in getting a feeling where the 
priorities are.

e.g. here is my list:

1) child axis support in predicates. See also:

2) fn:name() and some of the functions for substring matching
This allows more sophisticated matching of node names. currently only 
'*' and exact name are possible.

3) union operator
searching only under certain nodes excluding the jcr:system node is 
currently not possible. Using union operator would allow this.
