Subject Re: Questions about versioning
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2006 15:50:54 GMT
Dear All,

With reference to Jackrabbit versioning, I have some questions.

Let us assume that the version history of a node is something like
1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4(current version).

Now from version 1.4, it is restored to version 1.2 using restore method of 
After making one more change to this node, the next version becomes 1.3.1 ?

It is very confusing...!!!!  Do you people think is it correct behaviour ?

And, Is it possible to have versioning sequence like 1, 2, 3, 4......etc,
instead of 1.1, 1.2, 1.3.....etc.
