Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-535) Ignore root node when importing through sysView
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 10:02:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-535?page=comments#action_12426892 ] 
Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-535:

> no, it wouldn't. we deliberatly don't allow to replace the root node. /jcr:system e.g.
is protected,
> and for a good reason so because it's system managed and not user editable.

Note that Nicolas explicitly excludes jcr:system from the backup export, so it isn't being
imported. Thus there should be no problem with implementing the "getNode, change, save" cycle
for importing jcr:root with REPLACE_EXISTING as specified in 7.3.8.

You are right in that the REPLACE_EXISTING is defined to remove the entire replaced subtree,
includin in this case /jcr:system, but I think the same logic as we use to prevent modification
of protected properties and child nodes in normal imports applies here as well, i.e. the /jcr:system
subtree doesn't get removed since it's protected.

> When importing through a sysView, we should ignore the root node. It is in the sysView
to provide a root XML node, but the importer is going to attach it to the repository"s root
node... Which would create another root node and often raise exception. This is a know issue
> I needed this behavior to change for the backup tool, since I use the sysView. Therefore,
I havce slightly updated the WorkspaceImporter. Maybe I should update too the SessionImporter
so we have a consistant behavior. What do you think?
