Subject Status of jcr-server
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 12:51:50 GMT

I just spent some time starting to get familiar with JCR in general, and 
with Jackrabbit and jcr-server in particular. Now that everything is up 
and running (built from svn, running in Tomcat 5.0.x, just with all the 
default settings), I've started to look into the actual WebDAV server 

First step was to run the generic test suite Litmus 
(<http://www.webdav.org/neon/litmus/>), which currently reports a range 
of failures, some of which seem to be trivial (non wellformed request 
bodies not rejected with status 400), some not (such as If header 
evaluation problems, PROPPATCH tests all failing).

In the mid-term, I'd like to contribute to jcr-server, both in fixing 
compliance problems, but also in adding features (Redirect support? 
Property datatype support). For now, what's the best way to start? If 
I'm sure I found an actual problem in the code, should I open a bug 
report over at <http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR>, then try to 
provide a patch?

Also, what are the current goals for jcr-server? Is it just a 
proof-of-concept, or is it supposed to become a fully compliant 
implementation of the applicable RFCs? Is it supposed to follow the 
changes in RFC2518bis as well?

Best regards,
